custom build Hydromax RIB
July 20, 2012
-- Hydromax Powerboats Ltd are excited to have completed the build of a magnificent and distinctive 9.5m, 12 passenger Super RIB which will be used in the Mediterranean and Caribbean as a Chase Boat.
Taking the design from the ground up, our expert craftsmen have unquestionably delivered on our client’s original aspirations with a hugely impressive RIB which bucks the trend completely with it’s unique and enviable styling. Flexiteek has been fitted throughout, the upholstery is of a high quality marine fabric attractively coloured to complement the Neptune Grey and Ice White tubes which adds a further touch of class to this handsome vessel.
The console seats are comfortable dual standup/sit down bolsters with further seating to the bow and stern. Benefiting from many notable features, including twin 6ft sunloungers and ample storage Hydromax have needed to be extremely nimble in their design with fore and aft steps and a flat bow successfully allowing the new owner the ease of access he needs and specified.
This elegant yet dramatic craft benefits from a deep V, non stepped hull designed by Adam Younger featuring 3 sharp edged spray rails, designed to produce lift, and a fourth chine rail which increases the beam for internal space. Fitted with 2 x Vetus 220 inboard engines, this 440 hp subtly quiet and graceful craft hit an exhilarating 50 knots out on test with extremely rapid acceleration whilst providing an amazingly smooth and dry ride to all those aboard.
The console has been ergonomically designed to provide for comfortable offshore passage and hits the sweet spot between style and practicality. The wrap around front screen give proper protection for both the driver and the navigator. Fitted with Garmin GPS 5008 and Garmin VHF300i these compact and shallow faced units sit almost flush within the console. The Isotta steering wheel and throttle are well positioned at the perfect distance for the driver.
Hydromax Powerboats are justifiably proud of this 100% British chase boat which handles with surety and conviction executing perfect tight turns with no skipping or slamming. She is a complete joy to drive and presenting such value for money is set to become a genuine market leader.
