Hi hrcap, Having some experience with cabin ribs your post got my attention.

Probond Marine in Buckie are now building Carson RIBs with cabins from 7.5m and above that have also been fitted with diesels (and outboards). Carsons were the first purpose designed cabin ribs from the early nineties with 9m then later 7.5m (also had a stepped hull). More info can be found on Probond's website www.probondmarine.co.uk and also if you have a look at https://papayarcticadventure.blogspot.co.uk/ you will see Quickstep with a cabin, wheelhouse and inboard engine currently in the Arctic having voyaged from the Orkneys. You can also find more information about these ribs on this site if you search 'Carson'.

All Carson cabin ribs have proper little cabins, not just cuddy shelters, and can have berths, room for a loo, stove and even standing headroom.

I'd be happy to help with any queries.

I'm slightly worried what your eyes are drawn to in a boaty picture, Willk! But I thank you for your appreciation...

I know someone who almost bought the ribtec guyc linked to and I'm pretty sure he negotiated quite a bit off the asking price
Looks like it has volvo kad 32's fitted which are simple and reasonably reliable
If it's anywhere near your budget I'd say it's well worth a look

Here's a little project I did last year. Redbay 7.4 which I refitted and installed a 2 berth cuddy cabin console from Ocean RIBs on. Works really well as a weekend boat - I'm just over 6ft tall and can sleep quite comfortably in there with my girlfriend. Also works really well as a day boat as theres load of dry space to throw all your kit in, and you can pop a portable camping loo in there. In answer to the original question, the cabin/console is fibreglassed to the deck.

Hi Beamisken

I went up to see the ribtec last summer. I don't suppose you know why your friend didn't go through with the purchase do you?


Cheers

I have to say, that's a really sweet job - although she's a "frankenrib" now I know the lads at HQ would approve. I've done a few miles on that boat and she needed a lot of love, looks like she got it. You may not be aware, but that boat originally belonged to the brother of the MD at Redbay. It could potentially be the first inboard RIB they built - certainly one of the very first run. AndyGee on here owned her for a spell and then she moved to Cornwall under Jelly's care. My involvement came when she was sold back to Ireland for service with the Basking Shark project. She's been absolutely everywhere over the years and it's great to see her set up for a few more. Looks like the original tubes? Amazing. Pic of us working her a couple of years ago:

Thanks for that. Yes I knew most of her history. She was certainly the first 7.4 inboard they built, here's a photo of her still in the factory. She's a solid old girl. I bought her from Emmett in Ireland at the beginning of last year and spent quite a few months taking her apart and putting back together again. Yes the tubes are the original. Quite a few hours work there trying to make them look new again!
