6.5 - 8.0 metre RIB wanted.

Looking to replace my trusty Tornado 5.8m with a larger RIB for both family/leisure and work purposes. Would prefer at least 4 jockey seats and good seakeeping with strong deep "V" hull. Boat will be used for rescue/instruction and course laying at events, so dedicated leisure RIB with shiny gelcoat finish would probably not do.

Anyone got a nice Tornado 7.5m??

Mike
how about an ex-demo Parker 750RS
Colour: Military Grey hull, deck, Neptune console and jockey seats, upholstery in black
A frame with extension arch (for future fitting of radar scanner if such was required
Neptune console
bathing platform over the drive
black hypalon tubes with rubbing strake
Engine: CMD 2.8L (200HP) + B3 drive
2 x 2 man jockey seats and a 2 man seat built into the front of the console
Northstar M84 GPS chartplotter
VHF radio Northstar 721 Explorer
CD/MP3 FM radio from AV Marine plus Clarion speakers

It is not a rocket but a great sea keeping rib and good on fuel

First put on the water in July 2008 so really a brand new rib

Price: EUR 62,000.00 net ex-works Ostroda, Poland

Went with a new XS 750. Close run thing between that and a Redbay 7.4. Best deal was with a 250HP Verado (was going to go with Suzuki, but they put prices up at last minute!).

Delivery in March....

Any thoughts on a good 7" - 8" plotter plus VHF combo? Want to keep price down as RIB gets used for rescue/mark laying so don't want anything that will make me cry if it gets thumped!! Looking at Standard Horizon but am open to suggestions?

Mike

Mike I went this time with the Standard Horizon 1500 which I can't fault and find much better than the Icom 411 I had before.

I am also very happy with the 7" Lowrance LCX27C Plotter/Sounder however if you want the 8" version then the LCX37C is the one to go for. Let me know if you want a reliable contact in the US which will save you a few quid

I would recomend the Navman / Northstar for price and ease of use.
Nice big screens and could be used with smartcraft output on the Verado i'm sure.
