Now available a Scorpion 8.1m diesel version RIB. Good condition for age with the benefit of a reconditioned engine 3 years ago and a recent reconditioned drive. The Scorpion has fantastic sea keeping giving the driver and crew safe and dry passage making in most conditions.
Sting III was prepared in 2014 years to circumnavigate Britain via Scappa Flow in 2015 which it completed with ease in 6 days. We have transited to France and Cowes IOW many times non-stop many times night and day in varying sea conditions.
The 315HP Diesel Turbo Yamaha Hydradrive capable of 45 knots with its weight set low along with the large 450l fuel tank makes this vessel noticeably more stable and safe in heavy conditions at speed than an equivalent outboard version with their power head set above the water level. The fuel tank holds 450 liters supplying a range of 350 nautical mile at 40 knots or 600 miles at 20 knots.
