It's in Swedish, but they are nice looking RIBs though!

The company is run by Mats Lindgren, who knows a bit about fast RIBs. His RIBcat broke the 100mph mark a good ten years or so ago.

they look a bit strange, the bow kind of points down. The yellow one looks like a banana

I would agree that with a 6m hull and a 90hp engine a speed of 35 knots would be more realistic unless it's a very light very shallow V boat?
