Great Pacific Boats (out of Vancouver BC)?

There's an outfit in Vancouver that appears to import Korean made PVC RIBs. Their MIC code is XFO. Has anyone seen or better used one of these who could share an opinion? I'm looking for something around a 4-4.5m open (tiller steer) RIB for Puget Sound island/beach hopping and exploring, and it appears that they produce something very similar to, say, a Zodiac Cadet aluminum RIB, but at lower cost.

Importers like that open every year. They usually disappear in ~3 to 5 years when their 1st sold boats start falling apart.

What's the question?

+1 on this!

It seems with the uptick in boat sales there are quite a few new brands that came to market recently. Better off sticking to name brands even if you have to go older used. What's the saying? Buy cheap, buy twice...

I agree, older name brands are better

You get what you pay for

No thanks Jeff
