fantastic boats

Theyre great!!!

I have 9m on order and Ian has a 7.5m on order, what engine are you looking at? i would imagine a 140 (suzuki) would go well on it.

Sounds like Prosport are going to be busy this winter. I'm looking at getting their 8.5m. Especially as I have just been told that Mako have lost the contract to build the 7.8m Ballistic in South Africa because of inferior build quality.

The boat im looking at is advertised on boatsandoutboards.com

Its a 6m prosport, I think its a new model as it's not on their website.
Brand new with brand new suzuki 115.
All the necessary extras (console, seating, nav lights etc)
advertised at 12500.
Seems like a bit of a bargain to me as i was willing to pay 11-12k for a second hand ribcraft 5.85
That 12.5k will be more like 13.5k after all the other things i'll need for it though...

From the website i gathered they do 2 different hull shapes. A very deep v for the 7.5 and a shallower hull for the 6.5.

Anybody know about the 6m's hull?
