It's not a make I'm familiar with, but there was a smaller one for sale through RIBnet a while back. I've emailed the owner tosee if he can provide any details and I'll let you know if I hear anything.

Here's some onformation that I got from Jason Norman who owns Prosport RIBs. They produce 6.5m 7.5m and 8.8m RIBs.

======================
PRO-SPORT RIBs started life as Temptress RIBS from Yorkshire. The company closed down about 18 months ago and we bought the 6.5 moulds and a company called JDM RIBS bought the 6.1m.

The 6.5m is also very similar to NorthCraft same sought of shape and style. They are very good sea boats and we have pushed ours to the limit in all sea conditions around Guernsey.

They are smooth and provide a very dry ride, also a very good family RIB or Dive RIB as they have a large planning foot and plane quickly with heavy loads and small HP.

I own the company in Guernsey and wwould be more than happy to speak to you or any body about our RIBs

Please do not hesitate to call if you need any more info.
