At £96,000 the Ribtec was the most expensive RIB at the show. A 9.5m cabin RIB, fitted with a pair of the latest 275hp Mercury Verado's, the world's most powerful fourstroke outboards. Wow!

The only new production RIB at the show was Zodiac's latest 2006 model, the PRO 15 Man. A 6.3m boat, Southampton is the first time it's appeared on the water in the UK and a tidy looking model it is too. Tubes were finished in a smooth hard wearing grey uPVC, complete with forward console, seat and transom storage areas. No excuse for not keeping a 'clean deck' when in use. The demo RIB was fitted with Yamaha 115hp fourstroke.
