Great Weather - Great Boat
Ahh – as the weather get’s nicer – so do the sea trials. Making it even more enjoyable is a fantastic boat with the perfect layout. I just sea trialed a 25’ RIBCRAFT 7.8 built for a recreational customer who is going to use the boat for use as a tender for his fleet of sailboats. The boat featured a center console, leaning post, fore and aft tow posts, and a transom extension which allowed for our newest feature, an aft bench seat. All metalwork was completed in stainless steel – making the final appointments refined and flawless.
Not only did the boat look great – it performed beautifully. With a small chop and a westerly 15 knot breeze, the boat easily popped onto a plane and maneuvered empty moorings in the harbor like a professional slalom skier. Perfect for recreational use – this layout would work great for harbormasters, yacht clubs, and marine patrols.
Don't forget to check out the new bench seat. Shown here in stainless steel - the bench is also availabe in aluminum.
