Solent Rib 650
Standard Solent Rib 650    
The Solent Rib 650 is one of our most popular sized ribs. It handles perfectly, in both calm and rough waters. The deep V hull grips the water so the rib can travel fast with stability. The weight and balancing of the rib have been carefully designed so that you don't slam down on the waves or are twisted and turned - you'll feel safe in this rib. Because it handles well you'll be able to use it more often, in rougher conditions knowing that it will hold its own. It will comfortably seat eight, yet it can be towed behind a normal family car. Rigged with a 75hp the rib can achieve 25 knots and with a 150hp it can achieve speeds in excess of 50mph. 
The Solent Rib 650 is made from marine ply and grp. Our ribs are built by us in the UK to a heavier specification (making them sturdier) than some of the other current ribs available. The total length of the boat is 6.5 meters with and internal width of 1.5m and the external with (tubes deflated) of 2.4m. The rib is designed to carry up to 10 people and can take any outboard between 135hp - 225hp. Our ribs are sold as packages so when deciding on what you want you will need to start with the basic package. We call it a basic package as many customers add onto this starting point.This package will have everything you need (apart of course from the engine!) It includes the boat with tubes with fender and lifelines.There is an anchor locker in the front of the boat.A 160l underfloor stainless steel fuel tank with a fuel sender, and fuel access hatch.The standard boat layout in this price has a forward facing console with a seat at the front. Behind the console are 4 single seat pods each seat is cushioned and has a stainless steel backrest.
