I think Ribeyes didn't have very good build quality (in fact it was awful) a while ago. I think this kinda starts to show up a few years after purchase and people want to lose them. Also they have a very good marketing effort so they sell quite a few o first time buyers.

I think there is a 7.5 Scorpion for sale on this forum with an old mercury 2 stroke. and it's not too dear. you could always buy it and re engine. Also if you have the guilders there are two newer and superb Scorps for sale Gelignite (Mark Wildey) and one from the north of the country belonging to Qcamel which is an 8.1 stepped hull with a 225 Opti

Thanks for the info. I'd be interested to get some more details on the 2 Scorpions for sale that you mentioned. Could you let me know how I could contact the owner(s) ?

to be honest its unfair for me to comment i have only done 3 hrs with it , treading carefully with new engine, but cant say that i was hammerd by wind or spray,,,all the angles and screen height appear to be correct... i preferd it to the low console option they have, and as the pic shows there is more than enougth room for all the electrical goodies.
stood up its about chest level and i am 6ft.

this pic may show it better prior to me bending the screen, gives you a better idea of height when sitting down, its also very easy to increase screen height . more so for me as we work with acrylics all day long

You think so. They wont the 1995 sport Boat of the Year and obviously showed off the glass trophy at the LBS in Jan 96. They also showed a 4 foot stern section of there rib hull. Don't have a problem with this as costs for displaying at LBS are high, what I do have a problem with is the quality of the hull section they showed particluarly at a boat show. Ply wood didn't meet the deck very well and grp was both thin and rough. Still the lack of weight in materials would produce a fast hull which some may want. I do hope they have improved since.

I know that Niels has a 23 foot revenger for sale with a brand new 225 optimax behind it.

Thought that he is asking 31000 euro's. Boat is from 2002 or 2003.

Dutch, considering the number of Vipers made since 1992 very few appear on the market; which must say something about the owners views of the boats certainly my 5.95 Viper was the one rib I regret selling, superbly balanced and gave a great feeling of confidence when the weather turned nasty. Why not ask to borrow a 7.5m rib for a good sea trial.

The other thought would be to visit Ribex this year (end of May ?) to view some of the other options. For a buyer its a superb opportunity to test lots of boats over the same weekend. Write to each of the dealers beforehand so they know you are coming and can tell you apart from the rest of us tyre kickers.
