Ribeye - Went out the summer before last in out Solent 6.5 with 3 Ribeyes a Shakespeare and another boat, I forget which, on a wee jaunt over to Alderney for the day. Great fun, but we had a good 3 knots on the Ribeyes with the same and more powerful engines than our 150 opti. Partly I'd atribute this to their tubes not touching the water and the fact they looked like they were rocking at high speeds. We had 6 adults on board, and theirs with 3 people upwards weren't keeping pace. The 6m Shakespeare was however, and I think they could have taken us. It was flat seas and I've heard better things about Ribeyes rough weather performance. Personally though I wouldn't.

Shakespeare - What I've seen and heard I've liked.

Revenger - They just look so cool, who cares if they perform!

Redbay - If you can afford one, go for it, the build quality is excellent and they are some of the best foul weather boats, however aesthetically they are lacking somewhat, so for a family boat, maybe not.

Scorpion - Awesome, looks the part does the tricks, but the price tags attached - mostly your paying for the name I think, but the quality of build, from what I've seen in their factory (shed) is really great, maybe biased though cos I get on with the guys there being local.

We too are considering the next step in terms of boat size, the 6.5 Solent wasn't so amusing in a force 7/8 on the way to Weymouth, and a little more length may meet our requirements, especially maintaining some sembelence of speed in big sharp seas. Of course a Scorpion would be great, so i'll start planning a bank robbery now... :S

This probably wasn't hugely helpful, but it's my observations about some of the boats discussed above. Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year one and all

I think that the fact their tubes don't touch the water is not going to have a detrimental effect on speed quite the opposite in fact. The fact they were slower could have been down to you running a lightweight set up compared to the heavy Yamaha powered Ribeye. Also I think the solent does have a shallower hull in comparisson so would outperform the Ribeye in calm conditions.

As they are "some of the best foul weather boats" would that not make them ideal as a family boat

The Shakespeare was a 7.2, not a 6m, and yes, I think we could have taken you, but we were only 2 up!

The other boat was a Ribcraft 585 with 140hp suzuki 4 stroke.

And yes, I like my Shakey It's a very spacious rib, and if you like the revenger style, you can now get them with a moulded rear bench seat and outboard well which will take twins!

Sorry for not saying thanks to you all for all your help and advice but I have been away for a couple of weeks.

I will have a mooch around excel next week and see whats new, the only problem is that my other half mentioned something about replacing the kitchen........

I see that cobra have relocated, they were rumoured to have gone bust before xmas. They seem to have a good product.

Roguetta tried that crap when I waas buying my Scorpion and I thought what can I have more fun in..I bought the Scorp.

I'd reckon all the build quality of Scorps Solents Ribcraft Revenger and the Shakespeare. I ve been to the shakey factory and they do do it right. It's a lot of quality for a fair price

You must visit Devon and see if our quality is as good - but then you've seen our boats!
