Scorpion cabin rib – Iona

Have any of you guys seen / lucky enough to own Iona, she is a Scorpion cabin rib with a blue tubes and a blue hull? Saw her at the P1 power boat racing off Cowes a few weeks ago, fabulous looking boat.

Unfortunately not - I'm looking at getting a cabin rib so woudl love to hear any views on merits / negatives of the various types out there. The Zar looks ' interesting ' for the money but not sure about the look . Apart from that the shearwater or Aquaflyte ?

Saw thhe beast of one at Soton Boat show with 2 new Yam 350s on the back - a little too much power for me !

Scorpion Cabin Rib

Hi,

Ive been lucky enough to go on 3 of Scorpions Cabin Ribs and driven them. They are amazing bits of kit that are awsome in the rough and look great. Graham Jelly's new one is ready in Feb next year and its even better. Here's a pic of it

Scorpion Cabin Rib

The others run at around 53Knots Plus so imagine this will be the same.

That is a crazy price - you could get something like a Cranchi Endurance 41 or a Fairline Targa for that sort of money!!!
