You can ask anyone, this RIB is unbelievable, it's worth going to the Boat Show just to take a look at her!You can see more photos as well as live updates from the boat show on our facebook page which is called 'RIB 4 Macmillan' About the Avon Searider The Avon Searider is a very highly regarded RIB in the marine world, as for their size they have a fantastic seakeeping capability. This is mostly down to the deep V hull design and the flooding hull technology that has been used by Avon and is still used today by Zodiac who now make the Searider. Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE The flooding hull is designed to fill with water when stationary to add extra ballast and stability and air chambers are located under the deck to ensure even distribution of weight. When underway this water quickly dissipates through a hole in the transom while drawing in air from two small holes at the bow. The flooding hull is excellent for any stationary activity such as rescue work or fishing, but can be easily blocked off if required. The hull is in its original gel coat and has not been painted or antifouled.The Yamaha 90hp 2 stroke outboard is well known to be the best engine for the 5.4m Searider due to it being lightweight and powerful therefore giving the best balance for this package. It's reputation for being very reliable is also true and its often described as being 'bullet proof'.The Fisheries style console is the best of the Avon consoles and offers lots of storage and a very strong well positioned seating arrangement. You will not find a stronger or better designed console on a similar sized RIB especially in heavy seas.
