An Upward Trend in Horsepower
As the trend continues toward more horsepower one can start to wonder if bigger really is better. There is no clear cut answer either way as there are many different factors that play in. One of the biggest drawbacks is the larger the engine, the more fuel they burn per hour meaning increased fuel costs. The beauty of a RIB is that thanks to its lighter overall weight, a RIB requires far less horsepower to run at the same speed as a hard sided boat. This means better fuel economy and that RIB owners don’t necessarily need the maximum horsepower offered. Better fuel economy and great performance with smaller engines, yet more reasons why I love RIBS!
