My new XSRIBS600

Hello from France, some pictures of my XSRIBS600 and its 130cv YAMAHA.
After some twists and turns to be able to recover it following the covid pandemic and border closures!
After assembly of the electronics (the cuts of the consonle were made by the shipyard) 2 SOLIX MSI + huminbirds and an AIS VHF interfaced to the GPS 2 side probes mounted. The boat is mainly used for diving and fishing, search for wrecks in Normandy and around the Channel Islands.
After some outings to get started, a speed of 39 knots for 6 people (including 3 teenagers). a very high quality of manufacture, good seakeeping!




forist 2 xsribs in Cherbourg!

Lovely setup, I hope you can enjoy it now!

With both COVID and now a new baby, this will be the first year for quite a while that I won't be visiting the Channel Islands on our sailing yacht, we love it there, and down into Brittany.

Awesome setup for touring, diving, and fishing. How is the diving around there? What is vis like? Wrecks sound awesome, but how deep are they? We have dove around the Mediterranean side and it is pretty barren. We are more used to cold California waters that are teaming with life from whales and dolphins, along with some of the largest fish in the sea, seals, sea lions, kelp, coral, where everywhere you turn there is life. Our vis can go from less than a meter, up to over 30 meters, with a typical 3-4 meters. Shipwrecks here are smashed to pieces by the BIG storm surf. Scapa Flow wreck diving is on the list!

My wife was supposed to go to her friends wedding in Brittany and her parents were going to drive up to visit her and vacation in Normandy together. Didn't happen because of Covid19.

Hello Peter, here there is a lot of wreckage of all nationalities and kinds! of course that of the Second World War with that of the DDay of Normandy, but also those of shipwreck due to the perfectly delicate navigation conditions, important tidal currents, storms and rocky shoals! For the depths it goes from a few meters to 170m for the deepest and inaccessible!
One of the best known here is the Vendémiaire submarine, which disappeared over 100 years ago and which I had the good fortune to discover in 2016.

There are many more to discover!
For visibility it goes from a few tens of centimeters to 15 meters on the best days!
