I dont think you are going to get many ribs at 45 knots in diesel with a 45k budget, your going to have to pay more , anyway running at 45knots in the alantic , i think you body will give up the abuse after 1hr anyway , unless you go redbay 11m with airsupenssion seats . they have a top speed of 42knots and cruise at 30-35knots, but dubble your budget, and you wont be close to paying for one of these amazing Ribs, !!!!!!

Bravo 3 or 3 X's are a ticking time bomb in a rib , to be avoided at all costs !!!!!!

GO to the redbay Boat yard its is bloody amazing

We use a 8m Humber Ocean Pro with a Yanmar 240hp with Bravo 3 Leg, The only down side with the setup is that its slowest speed when you engage gear is about 4.5kts so close quarter work is interesting!

We have a 200l underfloor tank and easily reach speeds of 49kts with 4 passengers - I love to know why the bigger engines are only reaching the low 40's.....

Why doesnt anyone love Humbers any more? with their big tubes they are very good dry, sea keeping boats....

In my case, cos they fall to bits, but it is a good boat when it isn't falling to bits and I seem to be on the final lap as far as sorting that out is concerned.

Tim - I've emailed Redbay asking if I can pop on on Friday and see what 2nd hand boats they have in stock (And possibly test drive one)

Pete - Got a pic of your seating setup?

Im afraid I dont have seats as its used for diving (see attached pics) It just has a bottle rack in front of the console, although since the photos were taken there is now a big lockable box infront of the console that makes a perfect seat.

When we got the rib the console was in the middle of the boat, but cos its screwed to the floor we moved it to the back.

Peter, my Parker 750RS with the CMD 320 and Bravo 1 reaches a speed of 49.5 knots and I have a 220 ltr fuel tank and a large console where there is a lot of wind resistant ect ect , probably with a normal jockey console where the helmsman to totally exposed the speed could be over 50 knots but I prefer to be shelted
