The Ribcraft 4.8 would get my vote. Or maybe the new 5m??

Tiffy, whilst quite possibly well suited to the work you do - I don't think this is a good rescue craft for an average sailing club for the following reasons:
- too big to manouvre easily amongst a fleet of small dinghies who are actively racing/learning. In a true rescue irrelevant, but for routine safety/coaching etc you would end up being further out of the action so as not to get in the way. And quite intimidating for a youngster in a topper or oppi as a boat 4x the size come alongside.
- 400 HP, even with a diesel is going to cost about 3x what a club should be spending on fuel (as has already been pointed out club drivers have no regard for fuel ecconomy).
- Jet - will require additional training for most drivers.
- Might last "forever" but tubes and engine will still require maintainence - so even if a club had that sort of budget (unlikely) they would be better splitting across multiple craft so there is redundancy.

If not our smaller Humber 5.2 Ocean Pro with 150HP extra longshaft.
Personally I would say that is overpowered for club rescue work. 90HP is probably adequate on 5m boat, and will be cheaper to buy and run.

The SR was designed as a rescue boat, the idea of the hull is to increase stability when recovering people from the water.

The hull doesn't take long to drain.

Yeah but I think it was built for going to do a rescue, doing it and then getting out. I would imagine that this is a lot more stopping and starting. The SR is obviously very good at its job, but was it designed to follow a load of toppers around all day ?

It would use a little more fuel than a standard RIB hull.
