    After one day in a Fountain Lightning 42 with 2 x 600 hp... I must say that hull must be nr.1 in powerboat. Very fast hull, very easy to trim. This one is with staggered engines, center of gravity is very good.

    The only rib with simular hull is ocke designed pascoe international and adam younger designed kr7.

    I would like a boat 6,5-7 meters with jockeyseat for 4-6 persons. And capable to handle a 200 e-tec.

    The bananashark is a very nice hull to, but i want jockey.

    Any ideas?

    My mind keeps coming back to the UK builder Solent, so I'm no help. But I'm sure the guys over on could help you.

    We have a few new RIB designs going through at the moment - but a bit longer than you are looking for. The quickest is going to be a new 7.5m double stepped hull. Also another design for a 7.5m non-stepped hull as well.

    Either could be fitted with Jockey seats.

    I would imagine the builders will be in production by about September of this year.
