mr. BRITEMP Going back to your original question it us unlikely that you will get an unbiased answer from the owner of one of the type of ribs! After all would you spend thirty k and say it was anything other than fantastic! So here is my unbiased opinion
Not that any of the boats under discussion here are anything other than good boats and highly enjoyable drives!
The hull shape of the Solent tells me that it is NOT going to be as secure a ride as the XS but it's a safe enough ride! (in the right hands of course!)
Build construction on all three boats is good but I like the way the XS is turned out, there are little touches which says that boat building is no longer a learning process for these people.
The Parkers I have seen all look well built and Andre is also local
The boats you have mentioned all have engines can I take it these are ex demo or pre owned boats or are they yet to be built. How much is your budget by the way? (relax I don't have a boat to sell!)
Out of the three The XS is a very close winner for me anyway
