Taxi RIBs

I captured the yellow RIB this weekend on The Hamble and the Beige RIB at Cowes but interesting how the layout is made to gain more space,
Does anyone know anything about these?

I tried one like the yellow. In sweden, the rib is from australia.

One i tried had 2x115 Yamaha 4-s and one little newer had yanmar 370 hp.

Canīt remember the brand right now.
