We had a great day at the Southampton Boatshow, it was definitely worth paying that bit extra for attending on preview day, there were not so many people there.
We visited the Rib-X stand, it seems to get more impressive each time we see it, it’s quite clear they intend to become a major player and are now sourcing boats from four manufacturers. On the drawing board are some larger ribs of 8 and 9 metre lengths including cabin versions. There have been some excellent write-ups in the press recently particularly for 640SR (we always told you it was good). The 700SR looked absolutely stunning in its new colour scheme of charcoal and grey. Judging by the interest shown at the show Rib-X should expect to make a lot of sales.
Colin and Martin told us of lots of new plans on the horizon including changes and improvements to seating, consoles and general detailing (I for one loved the logo embroidered on the seat fabric….. very sexy)…….so watch this space.
Chris fell in love with a beautiful lady called ‘Ghost’ no doubt you will see her when you visit a photo is attached.
We met Jon Brooks from Icom who showed us the new 402 radio, it looks like it will be very popular. and The ever friendly Gecko Man!
Kathleen, I have posted a couple of pictures just for you.
We enjoyed it so much we will be going again next Saturday.
