Which ribmanufacturer makes a military spec with stepped hull?

I am looking for a 9m.rib military spec., stepped hull and pontons high. I will use the boat for charter. And it must be a reasonable priced boat.

These people definitely do what you are after but have had a few probs lately

The owner was not only supply boats to law enforcement but also to the drug runners - and possibly laundering the money as well.

Because of this there may well be some of their boats around cheap!

Steady on, innocent until proven guilty etc.

I heard a rumour (one of many) that he's quite likely to be let off, somewhat shakey evidence and the suppossed 2mil under the bed belonged to his wife!!!

As for a mil spec stepped boat, would have to consider Fabio Buzzi's offerings!!!

I did say POSSIBLY!!!!!

Personally I find it quite amusing - supply BOTH parties with the boats! No law against that!!!

I agree, but a similar thing happened in the States years ago with Don Arronow (Cigarrette and numerous other companies), and he was killed in a drive by shooting, the assassin is serving life for it!!!!!

Yes I remember that one now - Miami Vice may have been more accurate than I thought - when you get fast boats - fast women - fast cars - remember DeLorean?

Just had a look at the Crompton marine site. Nice looking boats.

I am interested in this one, though I think it might be a little underpowered
