Tomcat 7.5m RIB with diesel engine

I have a 7.5m catamaran RIB, with a 120HP - Mercruiser 1.7DTI diesel engine, please have a look at my website www.lagaude-marine.com.
The boat has a very few hours (10) she has been used for testing with customers and marine newspapers.
Incredibly stable (she is CE approved for 26 people) when we made the stability test there were 29 adult people on the side, and the pontoon was dry !
Fast, 33 knots with this small motor.
Presently she is fitted with a rear console for two, plus 2 front seats.
I have made a bolster seat for 2, attached to the right side of the console.
All fittings are to be made on customer order.
The same boat could get a more powerful motor, VW, Volvo, FNM ... preferably light, around 300kg is perfect.

750 Tomcat

The pontoon has to be replaced, it will be made in hypalon with longitudinal cut, color on request.
The genuine diameter was 48cm, it will be raised to 60, with truncated cones, and 9 compartments.

Thanks for the details but I do not really want a catamaran hull.

Cheers

Paul

Bought a RIB

My thanks to all who have called me but I have bought a Cobra 8.5m Diesel RIB - What a BEAST!! I cant speak highly enough of them and the fab after market assistance I have received from Dave Picton at the manufacturers Picton Boats. If you are in the market for a fast very economical RIB then look no further, these are the business. Longest trip so far was Palma to Barcelona, some 130 nm which the boat just took in its stride in spite of the force 5/6 winds gusting 7.
