I'm wandering what speed can be made by very fast ribs.
I don't mean the racers but the privat crafts.

Currently I own a Lynx that makes a 102 kilometer an hour but there must be other ribs that can do better ?

64 mph in a crowded waterway (Solent) is quite enough for me thanks! At that speed the water is like concrete.

The Pascoe SR9 has to be one of the fastest leisure RIBS

Cant remember top speed but probably about 95mph or 153kmh

The FB Design RIB 38, Techno 40, and RIB 55 are all right up there as well. I like the idea of a 55 foot RIB that can go over 70 knots The 38 footer can get on plane from standstill within 3 seconds and hit 52 knots within 8 seconds.
