They are either ex Royal navy or commercial spec boats and generally speaking very well build. They have legendary sea keeping ability and a new one would set you back the best part of £60k. They are a little like the Land Rover of the sea so not everyone’s cup of tea but for those that do like them there is little to fault . Having said that bigger and faster would be good. Des

PS this one that fell of the side of a frigate in a storm found later floating happily on its own .

This then begs the question how many P22 owners also own a Landrover?
I must admit the P22 is now on my watch list along with Deltas and Ribcraft offshores

Hi qcamel
Des forgot to mention that they are a go out in any weather boat, (what other rib could you drop from 10 meters and then drive away after), and i have not found any 10 meter waves yet, so go flat out.

the price for a new 160 hp with jet drive ( mk 2 ) is now £138,000, when i was working on them in 1998, a mk1 was £98,000 new.
