Why Kraken? Simply because we are the best!

That statement is so bold it's laughable and bordering on ridiculous. Better than humber im guessing which wouldnt be to difficult ?

Seriously - until there is at the least some sketches or better still some build shots I think Matt would be right in questioning the over confidence...

...if you want people here to rave about them -

- Who are these names we might all know
- Where can we see one on the water
- What's your price point

Brave man's.
Starts with a lot of competitions in UK.
Let's wait for final products.
I think that UK citizens be able to test and give feedback.
Maybe statement is "bold" but without big enthusiasm and faith in final product nobody starts I think. Sorry my English is not good to express my feelings.

Hi all, thanks for your comments. We have many years of experience in building ribs and if you look in the 'about' section you may be able to spot the brand we used to build in the pic. Unfortunately I cannot mention the brand name here.

Pictures will be out soon enough, just wanted to let you all know what is coming and I will share more information as soon as our first model is ready.

The 5.8m will retail for £10,499 inc VAT as an enter to market price.


Thanks Gaz

And perhaps some sort of link to ex Tornado / XS Ribs.
Particularly as the Retube & Repairs page is a near word for word copy of XS Ribs

Good luck and look forward to seeing your range

Takin the piss aside. I do wish you luck and i hope that we get to see some in build pics of the 5.8 version which would be one of the strongest methods of creating interest.

Thanks Matt, we really appreciate your feedback and have already looked at our website to make sure we are not being too "bold" although we do have a lot of faith and knowledge in what we are doing. Our 5.8m will be a cracker. I will post pics when I can. I want to give you some real insight into our product and we already have a video & photo shoot planned on the water to show performance. We are really excited to launch and are making sure we do it right ����
