Am considering purchasing a 2nd hand (possibly new) "consumer grade" RIB (vs comercial) for our whale watching tours in Nova Scotia. This boat would mostly be the peak, not so rough seas "spare". Ideally I am looking for 5.9-7.0 meters, to take 8-10 passengers.
I was considering trying one of the cheaper imports (Northstar from Turkey, Excedo from South America) Caribe? ... if new, ...... or came across a couple Zodiac options. .... The SRO 700 which has hypalon tube and the Pro-Open 650 - PVC tube. It is 2001, so already 5+ years old.
Any comments or reviews? .... much appreciated!!
