I had looked at Targas before purchasing Redbay 10, they are great boats but dont have the stability of ribs especially in the open water.

Glad to have you onboard S-D, I'll have go a cuppa now

But before I go, I heard recently that Redbay have sold one of the big ribs to an ex-Targa owner (after an unfortunate Stuffing).

You won't even get a sniff of a Targa under ten years old for that kind of money.

If your looking for a long range cabin rib look no further.

2010 Excalibur 8.2m Sports, Yanmar 315hp now available for a significantly reduced price due to a canceled order 80% complete.

That was good tea.

For Phil to clarify, obviously, but from his post, I'm guessing he means the kind of cabin that you can Helm from, as opposed to have a cosy kip in.

I think the marketeers of the various rib companies would do well to distinguish between the two concepts: Wheelhouse (covered helm position) ribs and Cabin (berths only) ribs.

Of course, Redbay 10 has both...

All right, game over. Scottish Diver is the NEW owner of Redbay 10, so Phil can stand down his pocketbook in this particular instance. Happy hunting Phil!

Best of luck S-D, sounds like a Life of Adventure you have planned for her.

wow!!! its fate isn't it after all that time;

re the cabin- to be quite honest one of the things I was and am still not quite sure about is helming inside; it takes a bit of the fun out of being on the water; however, age (dare I say it) and the prospect of reasonably long distance cruising means I might /should / must consider that carefully

bay dreamer, has anyone got any photos of the interior of the 8.2?

Redbay 7.4

Phil,
have you checked out Big Dippers boat advertised on ribs.ie ?
I know its a bit small, but with the soft canopy it would meet the hard top / no top needs.
Looking for a bit, but maybe would offer it to rib.net members for less ?

Worth the asking.

The cabin is not fitted out yet , So i suppose you could decide the internal layout yourself.

I have fitted 2 bunks and a sea toilet along with storage under the bunks in my boat.
Others prefered to leave theirs empty to store fishing rods, ski's, diving gear etc.

It really depends on what you need yourself.
