07 Sep New Stormforce 6.1
The Stormforce 6.1 is a model which our Managing Director Tom McLaughlin holds close to his heart. This was the first model that Team Redbay developed back in the early nineties and at that time it was the platfrom used for the very successful series of race boats. It still to this day puts a smile on his face when he gets a chance to test a new boat from the 6.1 stable. The 6.1 has gone through many changes in what is nearly a 25 year history with some of the most recent changes being the most radical. The latest generation of boats feature a fully composite hull and deck with reduced weight and increased rigidity. With the ultra reliable Suzuki DF100 it is effortlessly pushed to a top speed of 36 knots something that would not have been possible in the past.
Performance and Fuel efficiency are key considerations for any potential RIB purchaser which this boats delivers along with the unrivalled seakeeping that the Stormforce range has become famous for.
Tom said ‘ the acceleration is amazing, ‘the boat just jumps on to the plane’.
Ronan was thrilled with his new boat and although this is his first boat from Redbay it is his fourth boat all of which he purchased new and direct from the respective factories. He said ‘ now that he has had a chance to visit the factory and see the boat in the flesh he understands why Redbay has such a strong reputation for quality and he hopes to be back in the future to upgrade’.
TEAM REDBAY would like to wish Ronan and his family every succes with their new boat.
