Revex 2006
Revenger launched two new models this August, in association with Yamaha. One model an extensively updated and restyled Revenger 29 powered by one of the latest 315hp Yamaha Hydra Drive ME 432 TRP inboard diesels. And the second, a brand new flagship, an all new 31ft sports RIB powered by twin 275hp Yamaha Hydra Drive ME 422 HO diesels with a new hull design from Mike Sloggett and his finely honed HB pencil!

The Revenger 31 Boasts:
A self draining cockpit, a very deep cockpit, all flush fittings with no screws visible, all round grab rails. A bathing platform with shower and radar arch, a passive self-draining deck system, a low profile tinted windscreen, bow rider seating, toilet compartment, an aft bench seat, a through stem anchor, raised and lowered by an under deck electric windlass and extensive locker stowage.

 


The Revenger 29 Boasts:
Re-styled larger deluxe console, oval section stainless steel handrail around the screen, all flush fittings with no screws visible, updated sports seating, upgraded aft bench seating, re-styled engine box, passive self-draining deck system, electric engine hatch lifters, gel coat finished engine compartment and available with either a conventional or stepped hull option.

Both the Revenger 31 and 29 are designed to CE category B: "Designed for offshore voyages where conditions up to and including wind force F8 and significant wave heights up to and including 4m may be experienced".

Revenger 31 Flagship Design
With no excuses, Revenger’s new flagship has been designed on the earlier Sloggett race bred models from the days of Revenger’s offshore racing successes.

 


 

The new Revenger 31 is powered by twin 275hp Yamaha Hydra Drive ME 422 HO diesels, this latest model has taken Revenger into the super luxury sports boat sector.

Now it appears we have in the UK at least three leading edge super sports luxury rib boat builders. Revenger with this latest model confirms without doubt its ranking alongside the likes of Scorpion and Pascoe for superlative performance and top quality build.

Attention to Detail
Lots of attention to detail has resulted in some fine styling and ergonomic features on the 31.

The very deep cockpit brought about by the design incorporates externally fitted inflatable tubes. In effect the tube set could be removed and you would still have a conventional sports boat. The tubes come into effect and work with the hull under adverse sea conditions or extreme boat handling situations.

The tapered tubes also act as fenders when berthing in crowded marinas in the Solent or Med or elsewhere for that matter, to ensure no damage to either your own craft or others during difficult berthing conditions.

The new low profile tinted windscreen which aerodynamically achieves weather protection for the crew works remarkably well.

 

Simply Bliss
A narrow, functional and well engineered 'A' frame along with internal grab rails constructed from oval section stainless steel tubing (rather than round) provides a comfortable and secure grip at all times, simply bliss! The new console and its double skinned cabin door, and exceptionally, the new bucket design double helm seating is innovative.

The new helm and navigator seating which is electrically operated and has independent controls which allows for numerous variations from sitting to standing depending on each persons size and particular preference.

Together with the lower body wrap around design, comfort and support from these seats was remarkable.

These latest rib designs have dramatically moved the goal posts from the cheap and cheerful, lets get on the water craft provided by many UK rib manufacturers, to the mega bucks, no change out of a six figure sum for the super luxury boating fraternity.

Likes: Handling and steering, the starboard fitted Console and its integral toilet/shower compartment, Deep cockpit, Double helm seating, Oval section tubing for 'A' frame and grab rails. Dislikes: The plastic hatch covers fitted over the tube valves, the boarding step fitted to the tubes.

Spectacular RIBs
These Revengers are certainly some of the most spectacular ribs I've had the privilege to drive and I'm sure any owner would be thrilled by their overall performance and quality. A very comfortable and dry ride almost for all, except for the port side aft seat on the 31 as it does not benefit from the protection of the excellent console windscreen and the double helmsman seat. On the new 29, I thought the aft seat magazine holders, à la club class, were perhaps a little bit of over indulgence, as at 50 knots there was absolutely no chance of reading the 'in flight' magazine. Wonderful!

The handling was superb with the power units matching excellently. The build quality and fit-out of these Revengers makes them real heavyweights, ideal for beating up those short sharp tiresome seas. The 31 fitted with twin 275hp Yamaha Hydra Drive ME 422HO diesels, loaded up with 6 adults and a full fuel tank weighing in at 400kg (900 lbs), was on the plane in just under 10 seconds, and reached 50 knots effortlessly. Considering that the Yamahas had just a few score hours on the clock, the performance will be even more exhilarating once the engines are fully run in.
