Rather smart looking, anyone know anything about the hull design?

Own brand reading between the lines ..........

After many years in offshore power boat racing and many more in the superyacht industry, James Whitmarsh is better placed than many to know that quality and performance are not enough by themselves. The seamless blend of both is what he has achieved in the new 11m Tender / RIB / Coastal Cruiser / Chase boat. It is not enough to be the fastest or the most luxurious, to be the best James knows it has to be both: only the highest levels of quality, performance and technical finesse make up the ultimate offshore luxury RIB. Intoxicating, addictive, playful and devastatingly quick the acceleration of the Whitmarsh 11m has to be experienced to be believed.
This really is a boat for all seasons and depending on the engine configuration a boat for all users. In her racing guise this boat will compete in the round Britain race; in her tender role she will carry VIPs to and from the most luxurious yachts on the planet.


As a relative newcomer I don't know James Whitmarsh - what sort of offshore racing was he involved in?

The Wahoo ribs are based on an old Lorne Campbell design whereas these seem to be based on the old Bonito hull and therefore probably even older!

Production class, and a bit of 4 litre, when it really was offshore!
