They removed the '545' from thier brochure for a while,BUT I was told because of demand for this much loved boat they re-instated it, on special order.
Indeed I saw some they had made for the Olympics on my last trip to the factory,and they' looked great! They are a truly good,realy Deep Vee hull [considerably deeper than the '530]and are basicly a cut down '585',that is 1" narrower.In my opinion there is no sub 5.5m RIB that can touch them!
Incidently,Rib international did a good review a few years ago which you can download.
Good hunting!What ever you end up with in the RC range I'm sure you'll love it!
