Probably Ribeye with volume production and good distribution.

I suppose it depends on whether you count all RIBs or just new production but I reckon either way it would be either Avon or Humber.
I have never seen a Ribeye so they can't be that common north of the border that I am aware of.

I'd of said either of the above sub 6m, but not so many over. We're awash with Ribeyes down this way. It'll be Ancasta flogging them to yachties.

The North East is mobbed out with Humbers. Seen a couple of Avons kicking around but its mainly Humber up here.

I was thinking Humber, followed by Ribcraft.

I have never even seen a Medline or Ribeye up here never mind being awash with them.
It must be a southern softy type of boat that wouldn't take conditions up here

Yep, med style RIBs are totally unsuited to Scottish conditions!
