Thankyou to Parker RIBS

A message to Andre and all those from the Parker team.

Stars of the show by a mile.

Nothing too much trouble. The 10 seater was a real thrill. And the 6.3 very smooth

Other manufactureres take note if you want to grow the brand and put yourselves out there. This is how to do it!

Well done

Andrew

Well I was all set to buy the 10 seater when I rode it it.... but he'd already sold it. Otherwise I could have written the rubber cheque then and there!

Great boat that... Very dry soft FAST ride and I definitley want one.

Thanks for the ride Andre.

Now, where did I put my lottery ticket?

Yup. I agree with Andrew.

Full marks to Andre and the rest of Parker Ribs.

That 9 meter was something else! extreamly soft, fast and seriously good fun!!

Great marketing and PR exercise. i hope the new owners are very happy and it leads to many orders for Parker ribs.!!

Cheers Andrew it was a pleasure to take everybody for a ride and from the comments I read it made the day for many and that was what it was about.
If I recall correctly I did use the phrase "a thrill ride"

By the way it is a 12 seater + 2 crew

I was lucky enough, with a few of the Littlehampton RIBsters to have a sneak preview of the 9M Parker on Wednesday of last week when it arrived.

We took it on a run to Cowes from Littlehampton.

It was a lovely hot day with perfect sea conditions. Even Selsey Bill was flat calm!!

The RIB behaved and handled fantastically. I've never driven anything like it.

Heres a couple of photos of our day.

1. How many seats?!!
2. Graham asking the same question!
3. Proof of how smooth the ride was!!
4. The Parker 9m dwarfing an 8.5m Cobra in Cowes.
5. Cleaning down in Littlehampton at the end of the day.
