Parker 900 Baltic with TWIN Verado 300's

Change of plan:-

After a lot of negotiation I have changed the spec of my new Parker 900 Baltic. She is not going to be a Safari set up as initially planned but a leisure setup. My new rib will also be my Demo rib for Parker, so I have decided to go for twin 300hp Verado's instead of the 225hp Optis.

Layout wise I have gone for the Dog Consul, which is much larger than my previous consul, rear bench seat in front of the engine well at the rear, then with either twin jockeys behind the Consul or possibly twin Bolster Seats.

Colour wise I have decided to go all Yellow & Black again as per my previous Parker Baltic.

Delivery date is going to be late Jan/Feb. Can't wait now, 600hp wa hoooo

Sounds good setup and as I understand those new 300 Veradoīs are lot improved... so will be good to learn about the difference.

Sounds like a really good settup, and good for family outtings with the rear bench seat.
Plus Parker RIBs can now demo a greater range of their most popular boats.

Twin 300's sounds a wild powerhouse to have behind you!!!!!!!!

Does this mean you will not be doing the corporate fun days with it then Richard?

But think a good family laid out boat very usefull as a demo boat too.

Hope the Yellow bananah is still giving you some enjoyment.

Steve seems very happy with his too

Richard sounds interesting.... but you cannot call it the 'Dog Consul' ! sounds too much like a kennel! Is it some form of cabin console?, any pictures ?

What sort of speeds are you hoping for, and what sort of fuel consumption ? (was thinking of calling my boat carbon footprint.. but may be you should use that !!!!)

Now that is my opinion too, when Andre gets back from Poland I am sure he will explain. However the "Consul" is a cabin type consul and I will try and get some pics to post up. The area also extends below the deck so if you wanted you can either have it as an overnight stay or toilet etc. My consul won't have the radar arch across the top, just the grab rail around the windscreen.

Fuel consumption, alledgedly Mercury have solved the issues ref the Verado using so much fuel when going over the 4000 rpm where the fuel just doubled and then some so hopefully at cruising speed ie 36 knots she will use no more than my last one did at 1 litre per mile per engine. I will also have the engines higher this time round as she won't be used for Charter so gaining more speed.

The DOG console was put on our very first 9 mtr rib. My very dear friend and experienced ribster ie Mark "DOG" Phillips had a great input in the design so we just called it the "DOG" console . Sorry to dissapoint some but it has nothing to do with doggies or dog kennels

Richard just as well you selected the 300s cos the 275 has been discontinued.

If weather not too bad at the time of the delivery I will look up a certain visiting card, make the call and we can then repeat the crossing from Calais. My guess we could still be boarded but who cares

Only 4 seats and 2 are already taken
