Gemini Waverider 1060 Cabin Version

Cabin RIB’s always get my attention somehow. A cabin can be located in the lower deck with berts. But that’s not what I’m talking about here. It’s the cabin RIB that has a mounted and protective console offering space for two or more. Some have berts as well. The picture must be perfect to hold my attention though. Such a RIB is the Protector 8.5, the Madera Pilot and some other ones. I in particular like the setup of the Gemini WaveRider 1060. I’d cross the Ocean with it. Adding a cabine however makes it no longer trailerable for me as it surpasses 3.5 metric tons with twin engines. Source: gemini-marine.com.

Crossing the Atlantic – 1

On my bucket list the crossing of the Atlantic in a RIB is number one. I was very interested and curious at the same time when an Italian team accepted the challenge in 2017: the Ocean RIB Experience. The brave team successfully crossed the Atlantic in a 10 meter Master RIB with a twin Suzuki 200 configuration. It took 50 days and they were 2. Below you find the route, the distance, used fuel and average consumption. “In my mind my dreams are real” (Oasis).
