Owner Graham Neale will be happy to help you plan for your perfect charter. Contact the Ultimate Production Company on 01962 880878.

'Jellignite 3' - Last, but by no means least, Scorpion's boss, Graham Jelley's new 8.75m Rib will also be in use around the show.

South Coast RIBS are enjoying an incredible start to the year with great demand for their range of boats - from the Scorpion 'one design' 6.5m to the Scorpion 9.5m.

The majority of recent orders are for high specification, top of the range inboard diesel boats. Boaters everywhere are realising what Graham Jelley has been telling us for years ... "a RIB ride really is the most fun you can have in a boat with your clothes on.

Scorpion recommend either the Evinrude range of Ficht Ram latest generation, 2-Stroke outboards, or the inboard diesel Yanmar / Mercruiser Bravo 3 outdrive combination. These products have proved themselves by powering Scorpions over tens of thousands of nautical miles including the 1999 Round Britain Cruise.

With many customers now on their 2nd or 3rd Scorpion, SCR are currently tooling up for a 12m Super Scorpion to add to their range. This 12m Sports Cruiser will compliment the existing 8.5m and 9.5m Cabin Rib models and will continue to combine the legendary sea keeping and safety of a Scorpion Rib with the luxury and versatility of a comfortable cabin. SCR are finding that one of the advantages of Scorpion ownership is their exceptionally low depreciation due to the high demand for used models.
