What Are The Prestige Brand RIBS?

I know this may seem like a weird question, but there are so many brands of RIB out there...I have no idea which ones are considered the premium bunch. What are the so called prestige brands of RIB? and which are frowned upon?

For what use... leisure? race?

Open or cabin?

And in what range (ie what length?) as in the 4m class the Avon Searider is generally considered to be the one by which all others are judged. But in the 9m class, whilst Scorpion, Pascoe and Redbay are superb offerings, they are up against Fabio Buzzi, possibly the Ferrari of RIBs!

they are all good for what they do and the money you get

there is no proper answer to your question really as it is all subjective to price/use/fitout etc etc

We all have our brand loyalties... but it's interesting to speak to someone who's "converted" from one brand to another. For example, I spoke to an ex-Ribcraft owner who had bought a Humber Ocean Pro... he reckoned that the Ribcraft was much better made, but the Humber Ocean Pro a much softer ride. Another ex-Ribcraft owner who bought an Humber Assault was desperate to get rid of it because the ride was so bad. Deltas are famous for having a hard, wet ride, but they are well built and lots of people swear by them.

They all have a hull and tubes, but there the similarity ends.
