Panthercats some time after the show stopped trading and we re-branded the product Parker Ribs and got rid of those GRP jockey seats. Today that line of ribs is known as the Parker 750RS.
There should be a Panthercat logo on the steering wheel. In theory the rib is not a Parker rib as it was never produced or sold as a Parker Rib. I also believe that the engine was installed in the UK.
The tubes were made by Eurocraft
Knowing the hull well as I have had two demo Parker 750 RS ribs one diesel stern drive and the other outboard - she is a very capable rib, very good sea keeping with first class performance. Well built as well. I do not know her current condition but she is 12 / 13 years old.
