suggestions - big RIB, Wheelhouse etc

I would be pleased to hear suggestions on a large rib setup - 7-10m. Im looking for an all-weather kit, small pilot house, with plenty of space fore and aft. Inboard diesel, multi-o/bs, fuel efficieny, ? Stowage...maybe a small head? In essence, I am thinking of the best all around rib for extended coatal and blue water exploration without gowing crazy with exotic bit$ - In northern North East USA by the way...

thanks

Three that come to mind immediately are Redbay, Ribtec and Protector. You should find contact details for them in the trade directory.

Yes. A 9m version went round Britain in 1999 -- I remember Jason looking very smug when the weather was bad!
