They are a 45mm tubes, false floor, glass hull etc, anchor hatch etc. Pretty basic. The DL models are the Deluxe model. I had a 14ft model prior, 50cm tubes, and in between the two glass pods at the back, 2x 25l tote tanks fit perfectly (i think yamaha ones), believe was designed for this. That was a BRILLIANT Rib. Id prefer a Gemini Wave Rider for its front deadrise but the Caribes do the job when winds are under 20 knots etc.
So it appears there is a rear seat with centre console made for the c12 model, some are sold new like this. Problem is for spearing/fishing, the rear bench seat takes up too much room. But just the centre console alone would be perfect.
So I guess the question would be, where can I get the official centre console from and secondly how do they fit them professionally for new boats. Any screws create potential crack issues or the silicone wears off creating a leak through to the false floor. I suppose it is just a matter of upkeep if it is done via screws with silicone etc. I do not think they are Glassed in, but I could be wrong.
