Selva Ribs

Hi all and thanks for your recent help on my previous thread. Sorry but another question please.
Can anyone tell me what Selva ribs are like, i.e. have they a good reputation? are there any in England? I say this cos I believe they are Italian. I am refering to the Selva 560.

Also this one has Selva 80hp twostroke engine. Are their engines OK?

Would appreciate an urgent response as I am looking at one to buy, second hand but not very old. Apparantly they are category B 14 persons, looks quite beamy at 247cm
Finally what is the likely top speed in knts with the 80hp engine?
Thanks CGN

Selva

IIRC when RIB International Magazine tested a smaller Selva a few years ago they had some serious concerns about its handling.
Check out test report on http://www.ribmagazine.com/index.htm

Selva outboards are old tech 2 stroke - thirsty & noisy. Not at all popular in UK but cant comment re. Spain.

For the rig you are talking about you perfectly illustrate the nonsense of RCD classifications. 14 persons in a 5.6m RIB? I'd rather not thanks!

I reckon you would get top speed c30-35kts depending how many peeps up.

HTH,
Alan

Check out this link it might give you some technical spec on the boat your thinking of buying

http://www.selvamarine.co.uk/infopage.asp?infoid=141

I have been on the selvas Italian site but I can't remember the address.
As for what they are like, sorry can't help you there.
