The Zodiac Medline 6.8 RIB powered by a Mercury F200 is in a class of her own with her beautiful lines that makes her the luxury choice for anyone looking for a RIB with the ease of management of a 6.5m RIB without the size of a 7m RIB. She has secure and comfortable seating for at least six adults behind the console. This is provided by the double helm seat and the comfortable U-shaped rear seat designed for at least four adults. Having taken this RIB both across the Channel and out into the Atlantic Ocean to the Scilly Isles I know from first hand experience that this RIB is hardy yet comfortable - A combination you can rely on for pottering artound locally to get caught short on a weather forecast.
The helm seat converts to individual bolster seats for comfortable and secure stand up helming while the table in front of the U-shaped rear seat ensures the happy mix of table space and leg room for additional comfort. The rear seat has added security provided by a combination of the high backed seats and stainless steel handrails to allow you to move around the boat safely, even at speed.
The generous seat on the front of the console is a very comfortable place for one makes for a sociable space when combined with and a spacious double seat in the bow, which feels like an armchair with the Zodiac Medline square bow tube to lay back against - which of course has a Stamskin cushion as well.
When utilising the sundeck (stored on board when not in use) the whole front of this RIB becomes a sunbathing platform.
The SeaDek floor adds warmth and security underfoot, consequently we use this on all areas from the deck and the swim platforms to other high points around the boat to ensure you do not slip when coming aboard via the telescopic bathing ladders after a swim or water ski thanks to the stylish ski mast.
The plunging deep V hull cuts through chop as well as larger waves and will give you good service and a dry ride during local coast hopping as well for Channel crossings. This cruising RIB has a host of non-standard extras making it a fantastic deal for anyone looking to be behind the wheel of the first choice RIB around The Solent this year.
