BRIG RIBs

Anyone have experience with BRIG RIBs? I hear they're popular in Europe and Australia. They're making their big splash into the US and I saw them this weekend at the Annapolis spring boat show.

Any pros/cons and feedback from people who own them would be great. We're in the looking to purchase a new dingy soon and they have some good deals with customization options.

Re: BRIG RIBs

I first come across this brand 5+ years ago at Newport show. They seemed to be decently constructed and good value for the price. At the time their dealer network was very limited and that was an issue for my friend who was looking for a tender.

If they expanded their number of dealers/servicers I think I would give them a shot, assuming their prices, compared to their competition, are still as good as they were 5 years ago. I believe they're made in Ukraine so that should keep their costs way down as their currency is in the pits now.

PS Just looked at their site and I see that they still don't have a New England/NY rep and not going to Newport show. They have only one guy in MD and one in FL. That would be a show stopper for me.

Two masts, with squares on both? I like it!
