RIB ADVICE

I AM LOOKING TO SPEND BETWEEN 23-27,000 ON A NEW OR 2ND HAND RIB IN EXCESS OF 7 METRES WITH A 200 OR 225 HP ENGINE OPTION. I HAVE BEEN IMPRESSED BY THE BALLISTIC 7.8 AND HAVE HAD A TEST DRIVE, DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE ANY VIEWS OR ADVICE TO ANY ALTERNATIVES.

Not driven a Ballistic but they have a reputation for a harder ride - the concave chines cause this. Bloody fast though. Other potential which I have a reasonable experience is the Scorpion 7.5m. Nice boat, very well finished, good ride. Tubes are well clear of the water so its a bit unstable at rest.

HTH,
Alan

Ballistics do give a hard ride but they are very well built and have a very dry ride, a very high deck load and are very manoverable. Don't get a 7.4 the 7.8 is far better I would get one as my choice for a boat
