Ribster Rache launches new Osprey
Boat and jetski world stuck to their promise and we collected our 5.8 Osprey Vipermax with its 150 Mercury Opti for Easter.
It was a bit touch and go but Gary pulled out all the stops and made us very happy as it was boating for us all Easter! Whow we will never forget that feeling when we arrived at his boat yard to see the finished article for the first time. White hull and seating pods,(4 singles), Outhill's double console with blue finger nails, blue tubes by Eurocraft with yellow flashings. The stainless steel double A Frame and seat back rests look absolutely fantastic, the workmanship second to none. Upholstery to match tubes with yellow piping.
Dont those V6's ROAR when they are on the tap
The sound almost brings tears to your eyes! Hitched up and it was up the A41 through Newport and Whitchurch to Chester, then on to A55 to Anglesey.
We launched at 11.30 the next day (Good Friday) and recovered her back onto the trailer at 7.30p.m. (we did have to run the new engine in!!)
We managed to get her out Saturday, Sunday and Monday and couldn't get enough of her . She goes absolutely fantastic, acceleration is awesome and the deep v hull gives a wonderful soft landing and ride. It's everything we had hoped for and more.
We'll post some pictures shortly but we cannot imagine having any other make.
Thanks to Boat & Jetski World the build and finish of the craft is excellent and second to none.
