What did you have in mind? How many seats and what motors and what sort of performance were you looking for?

Thanks for the reply. We are looking for twin diesel, 35 knots max. Jet drives if possible, but regular drives are ok. The cabin should have 4 seats, working area and a small galley and toilet,. The boat must be disgned for professional work on a daily basis.

One of your fellow countrymen had a rather specialised RIB with similar specification built by Redbay Boats - they might be worth a look. They've just completed a similar 12m twin jet.

They have a very nice used 9.1m at the moment - only three seats though

Recent events have caused Sterling to plunge against the Euro in recent weeks - check their list of used boats - lots of twin 11m's in there.

Thanks for the info - actually one of the things I don't like about the Stormforce is the pointed fore - it makes it more difficult to take onboard passengers. This solution for the Taxi boat was very nice. Although I am mainly looking for a used boat at this point.

cabin Rib

Hello,

A friend of mine is building a new cabin rib by N. Dijkstra metaalbewerking in Harlingen the netherlands.
Dijkstra Metaalbewerking / Jachteservice it is an aluminium one with a RIB fender and a nose qualified for using with wind mills.

that freind of mine had two Offshore 105's to, one of those he wants to sell.
Thats an Offshore 105 12,5m with twin VW marine diesels of 350hp each and Saro drives. It is fast 40knots and has power steering.

Look at www.ubelsoffshore.nl and see the Vrijheid 2

Regards
Bert

Good Luck, took me 3 months to find one, and then it was a pure flook, one of the guys happened to be doing a job, and found one tucked away in the corner of a marina.
