New UK builder Debuts at SBS

Just been reading about Morgan Powerboats and their new 260. It's been a while since a new UK builder has debuted at Southampton, and what a boat design to do it with, well I like it! A lot.

Wishing them all the best.

Re: New UK builder Debuts at SBS

If they pitch the price right and the spec includes all the essentials, I.E they are not optional extras just to bump up price and its finished off correctly they should not have a problem,

To be honest I believe there is still a lot of money out there but its the housing market thats gone a bit pear shaped

Re: New UK builder Debuts at SBS

My favourate shots of SBS were on Andres 900 Baltic RIB. Mary just loved the high speed turns, and Matt is now a dedicated RIBBER.
I must say those two Verado 300's are so smooth, with outstanding acceleration.

Thanks again Andre it really was out best SBS.
