Lencraft vs Tornado

If your choosing between a Lencraft or a Tornado, keep this in mind. I know several people with tornado boats, which had to be Re-tubed by Lencraft. Doesn't say much for a RIB manufacture that needs its tubes replaced every few years. I myself have a Lencraft 7.5 Intruder, my friend had a tornado, both boats were examined, compared and contested as best friends would do to each others boats. Lets just say he's ordered a Lencraft after nothing both grief from his Tornado. The hull and build quality is second to none, and I know the Irish Army, Inland waterways and other Government agencies, Dive clubs, and search and rescuce organisations would agree. Lencraft is a custom built and hand crafted, Tornado is mass produced. You figure it out. And anyone who disagrees doesn't know much about boats!

Marie .... IMHO your best bet is to get either a Greek or Italian made boat
Tornado had a test in Thalassa mag ... have a look at it .... if you can't find it I can scan and post here .... The boat was also in the Greek RIB X and as far as I know didn't sell ... main reasons amongst others .... not a lot of storage space on the boat, not a splash well, not made for the med and the way RIBs are made for this part of the World etc.

The other one you say .... never heard of it ............
