Yes, I know what you mean. I dislike the ‘frilly’ ones too. I wouldn’t touch them for free. The ‘sitting room sofa’ type seat across the stern looks so stupid I think too.
The well designed ones I think are, Humber, Tornado, XS RIBS, Excalibur and of course Redbay. The raised Bow helps keep the RIB dry in rough conditions.
It’s best too, to have the cables and fuel lines routed under the floor. It’s a much finish, and also the fuel in its own tank under the console or floor. I can’t stand carrying those loose containers of petrol in the boat.
Just my sixpence
