What kind of Zodiac is this?

i drove these for a few years when working on a ship, but can't remember the exact model. Kind of keen to hunt one down, as really enjoyed it. I thought it was MkIV, but not sure. Mix of engines, Yamaha 40, Mariner 50 etc..

Appreciate any info folks

That looks like the HD (Heavy Duty) series of Zodiac SIBS (not RIBS). They are now sold by the MilPro division of Zodiac. My guess is that the both are MkVHDs. Lovely boats (probably underpowered with 40 hp engines, though).

Could be one of the older Zodiac FC range, the FC470 perhaps?

I know a previsions crew member purchased one from the ship when they replace some. (If the ship is not on a beach in India by now).

Believe it is restricted to Galapagos now, which is a shame. Round UK was great.
