Which Osprey RIB would be the fastest?

With the same single 250 or 275hp Mercury Verado engine?

Seaharrier Max 7.4, 7.40x 2.40m, 600kg
Viper Max 7.5, 7.50x2.55m, 750kg
Lynx 8.0, 8.00x2.15m, 625 kg
Lynx 8.6, 8.60x2.15m, 685 kg

And would there be a noticeable difference in performance in other areas besided top speed and if so what?

I think that the 8m lynx with single 275 setup will be the fastest.
I have a 24 foot Lynx with a single 225 and it runs about 50+ knots.

The Lynx 8.6 is a monster. Made for twin setup and very high speeds.
Lynx ribs are a bit narrow though.

Petrov can tell you everything about Opreys. Or you could give Kris a call at Bruggemarinecenter. They know everything.

I believe seaharrier on this forum has bought a new one this year.

This comes with a picture

Flavio;

Are we talking when its flat water or ruff seas, the models are acting different in the seas so some models have an advantage when its more ruff than others.

You can say that the Viper Max is around 2 knots faster than the Lynx but the Lynx is faster in the ruff seas.

So that means the Viper Max has a more efficient hull because it is the heaviest of the four?
What are the differences in the hull design, do they all have the same deadrise and pads? Also what is the benefit of a hardnose?

It will dive deeper! (but keep the tubes on)

Flavio;

Not long time ago we talked about this here on ribnet, if you search on ribnet there will be some attached pics of the hulls and explanation about the differences.
If there is anything that we missed than i am glad to help you.

Ther difference will be around 1-2 knots lower than the Lynx.
