Interesting place to stay down at Cuan ferry if anyone still looking - I thought I had seen motorhome standings there but can't see any mention on here and it was a while ago I was last down there ....

Looking forward to meeting you all for what I'm sure will be a fab weekend

A Powerful Offering from Berthon Power & Gemini RIBs

Berthon Power, the sole UK & Eire distributors of both the Cox Powertrain 300hp diesel outboard & Gemini RIBs, are pleased to announce they will be attending the Easdale RIB Rendezvous in May 2020.

They will be presenting the world’s first 300hp diesel outboard, installed on board a commercial quality Gemini Waverider 780 RIB and fitted with Shock Mitigation Seating from SHOX. This combination showcases the very latest in outboard engine technology, on board the Gemini RIB, providing a versatile vessel ideal for a range of users.

Simon Barnett of Berthon Power explains:

“Easdale RIB Rendezvous provides us with the perfect opportunity to introduce both the CXO300 Diesel outboard engine and Gemini RIBs to the adventure leisure and commercial sectors in Scotland.

We expect the combination of a hard wearing British-built RIB - paired with a sophisticated diesel outboard engine - to be an appealing combination in an area where rough sea conditions and guaranteed access to petrol can be challenging.

The RIB and Engine we will showcase are exceptionally strong, and have an unparalleled range when compared to petrol alternatives.

We are therefore pleased to offer sea trials of our Gemini WR780 & Cox combination to as many interested people as possible throughout the weekend, whilst exploring the beautiful coast of Scotland.”

The Waverider & Cox combination is available to all for sea trials at the Easdale rendezvous. Trials can be customised to witness the RIB in action through various conditions, and we look forward to demonstrating its remarkable capabilities. Give us a call to book via the contact details below.

Simon is the UK & Ireland Sales Manager for Berthon Power and is available at Simon.barnett@berthon.co.uk or by calling 01590 647 448. Andy Andrews is the Sales Manager for Gemini RIBs and can be reached at Andy.andrews@berthon.co.uk or by calling 01590 647 404.

All queries and questions are welcomed.

We look forward to seeing you at the rendezvous![/QUOTE]

Hope this isn’t a silly question to the 2020 or 2021 Easdale Rib Rendezvous.

I have a 4m Searider. Would it be suitable for the journeys made on this trip?

I see some large powerful craft and couldn’t keep up with them in anything other than flat calm conditions. But do enjoy exploring the West Coast in my little SR4 as often as I can.

Hopefully join you all one day in this trip in whatever rib I have at the time .

This year we'll probably be in our 4.7 Searider, so if the weather's not too bad a 4m should be ok.
