Yes they are fantastic boats i worked on a 42ft Interceptor for part of the summer, We went out for a play in some really rough weather and it was very impressive.

I have posted about it before.

So are they as good in a big sea as they look? I hear there is another 42' for sale down Cardiff way? Stunning bit of kit.

Dont know about SIBs, I've got an Ex SBS one but have never had it out for a serious run, but I probably the most fun boat I've had was a 7.4m open Redbay. Fantastic fun sea boat and great drivability (is that a word ).

Yes they are the best boats i have experienced in a big sea. The one i worked on runs out of Aberdovey and the bar there can get very rough and it cope's with it no problem. When i have been out in big sea we have never had a problem running at 20kts+. The new 55ft one will be awsome but costs twice as much.
