It's in Swedish, but they are nice looking RIBs though!

The company is run by Mats Lindgren, who knows a bit about fast RIBs. His RIBcat broke the 100mph mark a good ten years or so ago.

they look a bit strange, the bow kind of points down. The yellow one looks like a banana

I would agree that with a 6m hull and a 90hp engine a speed of 35 knots would be more realistic unless it's a very light very shallow V boat?

as a hard boat i think matts achieved a top speed of 76mph before using the hull for a rib cant remember the engine size but he scared the hell out of me when he took me out in it as well as when we went out in the 100mph plus ribcat

Talk to people in Sweden about the!

From what i have heard from my Swedish agent they have managed to damage the reputation of RIBs in Sweden as they have had issues with people flipping them and bad swampings.I saw one at Gothenberg boatshow and i could almost pick the bow up on a 7.5 mtr hull..
They seem to be very very light...

The obvious way to correct a light bow is to put a big anchor and loads of chain in the bow locker. It could come in quite useful in emergencies as well........

Respect

If you go inshore Rib Unlimited is a nice rib, but i should go for another brand if you like big waves.

A 700/702 with a 100-115hp is a very economic and fast boat. And a 600/602 with a 50-60hp to...
