Humber 630 Ocean Pro

Hello,

I wish to have information about the Humber 630 Ocean Pro with 150 hp (4 strokes) Yamaha 2015 : built quality, 150 hp enough or max power (fuel consumption), behavior at sea. Most of the time, we are 2 on board. My program is fishing with long trips. I heard good things about XS Ribs too. Thank you for your advices.

Copied from Humber Website (assuming it hasn't changed much), spec of 630.
https://www.humberribs.co.uk/pdfs/Oc...20Brochure.pdf

Behaviour at sea is good with 6m size, XS, Ribcraft, Humber & others.
Its made in the UK, of course its good!

Itís a no frills strong and seaworthy RIB. Mine had a Suzuki DF 140 which was more than adequate but a 175hp motor would be ideal in my opinion.

Agree with that - we also had a DF140 Suz which returned around 34 knots. I wanted the DF175 which I agree would be ideal, but the weight was more than the 200kg the 2004 hull allowed. I understand the newer hulls can take a slightly heavier engine up to 200hp. A 150hp would be a good fit though.

We love our 6.3 Ocean pro and are currently renovating it. Itís a solid rib which we have had out in various sea conditions, it is comfortable enough up to a force 6, but obviously tailor speed to match.

Are you buying from Humber or a second hand one?

Thank you for your answers. For Wave Rider, UK Ribs are among the best for my program, we ride on rough sea too in Brittany and Ribcraft, for example, leave the other ribs behind. It's true. Thank you for your experience with the Ocean Pro 630. For Xpertski, I found a second hand 630 Ocean Pro. The boat is 2018 year built, and the rest of equipment is 2015 (GPS, Trailer and engine). Only 4 Humber to sale in France now, so prices are high but normal in front of other ribs much worse. No second hand Ricraft 585 and any XS 600. One dealer for Tornado but Tornado are built in China. I found a good Osprey 650 one month ago but year 2001, with 200 cv Verado. It's difficult to find a good UK rib in France and buy in UK is not a good idea with the Covid because of restrictions. So I have to be patient or I have to buy in France. For Xpertski : I can't buy directly to Humber in UK because of commercial rules. Same thing in Ribcraft. So finally, I come towards you because I think you are in the best position to speak about your UK ribs, even if we have lot of UK Ribs in Brittany and in France. Thank you. Sorry for my english not very rich.
