How come the tubes have no "ribeye" on them on the 600?

I'll post the actual measurements up tomorrow but I agree the hull looks different to that 650. Strange.

Not sure if tubes have been replaced via a different supplier or are original but my understanding is that it was requested for them not to be fitted. The boat was used as a sailing club safety boat so I assume cost was as big a factor as making it look low key and not so leisure looking. They are in very good condition either way!

It's going on the water tomorrow for a further sea trial so we will see what she's like.

Has it been retubed? Hasn't got all the usual blue trim, wear patches and ribeye logos that they usually have.

I'd get your tape measure out. They have never made a playtime 650. They do 5, 5.5 and 6m in playtime range which is same hull shape as yours. The only 6.5 they do is in the sport range along side the 7.85m. They both have square bows as you said and shown in C2's pictures. The sport range also have planing pads on the back 2 thirds of the keel and large spray deflectors below the tubes. Take a look at their website, the models haven't changed since yours was made.

Ribtec do a 6.5m which are now sometimes branded as Ribeyes but they have a different hull shape to both the ribeye models with a single spray rail.

Has it got a hull number you ring ribeye with and they will tell you straight away. Or get the tape measure out.

Yes it's Ribeye plated. As advised not sure if retubed or just ordered without the "ponce"

I know it won't be a Playtime 650. Looks likely to be the 600 but measurements will confirm. I'll put in a call to Ribeye with he H.I.N and see what they can advise too. Shame they don't post much on here, other than to sell but I know they are busy, plus they are very helpful over the phone anyway.

Can you not just measure the length? I thought the 600 was half a metre shorter than the 650 or am I being too simplistic...

Hello

It does look more like a Playtime 600 but to be sure do give us a call with a HIN (01803 832060 and ask for Anne-Marie). We don't post that much but we do read everything!

If we can help with anything else, then let me know
Ella

Thanks Ella. I didn't mean to suggest you don't contribute, sorry.

To end the thread, it's a 600 without question. All measurements match and having put it on the water today it performs like one too.

It's going to be on sale very soon so keep an eye out for it if your in the market for one.
