A few years back in Ibiza I saw a similar thing, but was a speedboat, rather than a rib... I was soo tempted to buy it, I think it was a few months old, and was being sold for about 5,000. it kind of apealled to me for taking people out for the day... you could take the "boat" out and anchor it somewhere and then mess around with ringos and things with the jetski... the one I saw had a picnic table in the middle too

Cool looks like the best of both worlds though trailering the two together might be difficult

If anyone is serious we would probably be able to make any of our boats (we have new models coming out this year) to accept a PWC - we like doing different stuff!

Two PWC's? I don't see why not if the hull is wide enough although control would be fun, I would think it might be all a bit too much really - you would be better off extracting the engines and making a dedicated boat out of it!

RIBase
I was more expecting something like this:-




I was quite tempted by that-it looks like fun. It's got a 553cc Rotax in it and he only wants 350 for it.

Anyone know who made it? They look like Avon valves but that doesn't mean a lot.

I liked the steps moulded into the back of the dockitjet - seems to be one of those 'why hasn't it been done before things'.

Indeed, I can't see any use for them at all really, I guess they are just easier to make than cones
