Any one know anything about them?
I now there not RIBs, but you get a lot of boat for your bucks!
I'm looking at the 216dc that was at the boat show, going to sea trial it in 2 weeks time

Without any doubt one of the most badly built boats I've ever seen.
They also build (throw together) Mariahs.

Dirk or Jono(you posted as i did)
Can you expand a bit on this ,although i didn,t inspect them closely, i thought the same as Nick when i saw them at the boat show.I,m was even getting gbh of the ear off the wife about swapping the rib for one so a bit more info will enable me to shut her up.

When you look at these boats they do look allot of boat for the money. Dirk would be more experianced than me on the build quality, on the handeling side of thing the Boston Whaler is #1 and I would say Sea Pro #2 the build quality of the Sea Pro looks very good to me also. Your then left With Benetau Flyer, Sea Pro, White Shark and a few others. Just remember they all look very nice but they are not a rib!

100% try on a lumpy day before you buy.

PS try steve the boaters sports fish, talk about good fun and deep v, pics attached
