Parker Baltic with 2 x 275hp Mercury Verado's

Hi

Thought I'd share with you some pics of my new Parker Baltic coming together. Colour is kind of bright, but not too bright. Should look much better when all that Yellow is brocken up with various tread patches and consul etc

regards

Richard

Re: Parker Baltic with 2 x 275hp Mercury Verado's

Looks very impressive. Andre has always assured me that Parker RIBs were based in a modern factory somewhere in Warsaw, now we can see the evidence. The build of the hulls looks well structured and neat, no wonder they don't suffer from structural issues.

Despite being an ardent fan of Andre's RIBS, and having been in Warsaw at least once per month for the last two years, he has always managed to avoid co-inciding his visits with mine.....

Also an excellent idea cutting the tops of the console pods, they can be used as extra fuel capacity for those verados

Look forward to seeing the boat in the UK next year..... I can think of one excellent place to show it off ........

ha ha, thank you, all being well at 36 knotts the combined fuel should be 60 litres per hour, based on previous figures on a similar set up.

Please you like the pics, and the Rib will be in the Solent in 3-4 weeks. We're bringing her back from Calais, by sea, so will pass Littlehampton somepoint miday time all being well.

Graham, the factory is 260km north of Warsaw E77 heading to Gdansk
It is our Warsaw office you must have been thinking of. Anyway glad you like the rib. When Richard first said he wanted a yellow rib we all thought of a lemon. This particular yellow is just stunning and goes well with the black D fender/rubbing strake and those new none slip bum patches.

This rib will turn many heads in the Solent

I unfortunately do not go to Warsaw too often but fly to Gdansk

The Miss World weekend in the lake district would have been a good time to have gone. I missed that as well

Re: Parker Baltic with 2 x 275hp Mercury Verado's

Well Andre,

I think that the first picture here proves Parer RIBs' build one of the best hulls in the business.

That level of strengthening and glassing in makes you wonder what some of the big names in this country would look like when stripped right down?

Also Andre the last picture seems to have the foredeck of a good sized hard boat.
One of yours??

Yes very pleased, Andre and Parker have been brilliant, updates virtually daily, photo's, so really the long distance between the boat & myself has not been an issue, did a trip across to see the factory about two weeks ago, very very impressed, it's a huge place, 20,000sqft of factory plus just about to under go an expansion which will double the size.

Will be going over again in about a week or so, then once more to bring the rib back so cannot wait.

Well Richard looks like your going to have a superb rib, the build quality certainly looks solid, the colour will be a head turner. Looks good with the verados on the back look forward to seeing the finished rib.

Re: Parker Baltic with 2 x 275hp Mercury Verado's

Richard,
I've looked at these pictures and you have a fantastic boat comming your way. But I have to say I like the tubes with the black step pads on top. That white stuff held down with masking tape dos'nt do it for me, ditch it and stay with the pads mate.
