Price as reviewed:

£31,285.00

Starting at £31,285, the cuddy-cabin Rinker looks like a very competitive package.

The twin-tip design means you win a wide, safe foredeck with a cabin below.

The cockpit and helm feel well protected by 1ft 6in coamings.

A sunbed, full-width bench and twin swivel seats make up the seating plan, with a central walkway from the bathing platform to the helm.

There are plenty of grabrails to guide you but the daycruiser image is hurt by the lack of a cockpit table.

The cabin is wider than average, but access to it isn’t great.

Inside, V-shaped seating converts into a comfy 5ft 9in-long double berth, with two integrated backrests providing very comfortable lower-back support.

The V6-powered Rinker treated us to a ride that was way above average. The upwind ride is slightly harder than some conventional-hulled sportsboats, but the downwind ride is excellent.

Tested October 2009

Verdict

A bowrider makes more of the twin-tip design, but this is still a smart package
