If you look at ribs around the world, and indeed even around the UK, you will see that climate has an impact on the most common layouts (and actually hull designs too). So in the med sun pads, biminis etc are common. In the UK less so, but on the South of England might be more likely to have family oriented layouts with wakeboard or ski storage etc. In Ireland and West of Scotland where it rains a lot - boats with Cabins are much more common than in S of England. Potentially different sizes and frequencies of waves typically encountered means some hulls might be better than others, whilst seat styles/layouts and even fabrics/foam might adapt to the weather/seas.

Similar trends emerge with other boats too - so fishing boats suit the type of fish, distance from shore etc, and even the number of people who might usually go together. Sailing boats also have local designs that have evolved for particular needs (you'll find bilge keels much more common in UK drying harbours than the almost tideless med etc).

Many thanks poly for the valuable summary. Being far from your area, ur explanation gave me much better understanding of the connections you talked about! Many thanks

RIb boats having storage containers inside hull

My boat has comparatively huge bow storage locker and also in the stern/transom created essentially by a high bow 'sun' deck and mounded in rear bench. But this is not at the expense of built in buoyancy - there are mounded in buoyancy chambers running fore and aft on both beams.
On cross channel trips with other boats etc, I've been able to store everything below decks whereas the usually bigger boats I've been with had to strap most stuff above deck.

Capelli Tempest 470 - Most Capellis have this sort of storage & fore deck - They are optimised for the Sun being Mediterranean (Italian) in origin but not at the expense of very sea worthy hulls.
