Brig 380, any good?

I need a smaller RIB for a while. Spotted one of these. They are more luxury RIB than I would normally go for, with a lot of space wasted as Im spearing/fishing a lot. But looks pretty good package.

But they dont even mention the deadrise on their specs, anybody know? They look fairly sharp entry for a 12'6 boat.

Cheers

Im going to buy my first RIB this year and it is a Brig Navigator 485. As far has i know, they seem to be a great both for the money. As for your other question, they have all the boat manuel on their website with all the number you need

I have experience of the 380 - my girlfriends parents have one. It's a very solid little thing, and feels a lot bigger than 3.8m. It's nicely put together - I would recommend it if it ticks your boxes.
