Yes, an 80 foot long RIB! Has anyone else seen this yet?
The attached picture shows the design of Offshore Expeditions prototype design for the RIB that Alan Priddy intends to use for his next crack at the RTW challenge. Yes, I understand that he's going to have a go at the record once more.
This incredible craft appears to be a 'hard nosed' RIB with a 'wave cutter' hull and it is 80 feet long! It has twin engines that aren't yet on sale to the general public and it will have a range of 6,000 miles so they will only need 4 or 5 fuel stops!
Wow, what a RIB, surely it will be the biggest RIB ever built?
If anyone else can shed light on this please let us all know.
