This was the main reason why I bought my Humber.
At the Southampton boat show in 2002, I went down with the aim to be seriously looking which I was at the time - It was between the Humber Destroyer 6m, and the Ribcraft 5.85. To be honest, a trip to Ribcraft to trail the boat back would have been better than the 10hr trip from Hull, but that's the way it ended up.
I went down with my Dad, and when we asked about the prices, we were literally told that they had too much business and therefore didn't need to give any form of discount. There wasn't really even any interest in trying to sell me a boat to be honest.... we both came away with the response "that's the 585 out the window then". On the other hand, Humber were very very helpful, with both specing out the boat, and getting the little details sorted - the primary thing here was that they were interested in the sale which was great. I know several people who own/have owned 585 ribcrafts, and I have used one from time to time down here too - they are great boats. At the time of us enquiring at the boat show, the response could have just been caught at a bad time or something, I don't know, maybe it was they way we looked
Either way, I don't regret going for Humber, cos now over 3 years in, the boat is running very well
