They've certainly given you a good "marketing".

Yup, had two of their made boats, but don't just take my word for it, there's hundreds of them round where I am so they're doing something right.

Some of the guys here have questions why RibEye, some reasons I'm already mentioned, but from my point of view compering with others English RIB's one up is closed stern and compering with Ribtec 655 what is very similar, unfortunately Ribtec has very ugly back bench what is in RibEye really nice and very good incorporated with stern. So on moste of these RIB's hull is very similar and very good when you add all other details what have RibEye 650S for me it is favorite !

I'm deeply offended, my bench seat may not be the prettiest but has a great personality

On a serious not, I'd take the boat handling of the Ribtec over a pretty layout any day.

Chris we looked at Ballistic years ago and then I saw they were manufactured by same crews in SA so I made a choice then. I am open to be corrected as others will I am sure know more.
