XS 650 RIB (rigid inflatable boat) "PARAMOUR"
Engine:150hp Yamaha 4 stroke. Cruising speed: 25 - 30ks. Top speed: 43ks (50mph)
Come for a blast aboard Paramour, our purpose built 8 passenger RIB. See the area at its best-
from the water, and enjoy the exhilarating experience of a fast RIB.
Perhaps you require an evening pick-up in St. Mawes, Falmouth or elsewhere in the Carrick Roads?
Why not take the RIB for lunch or dinner at one of the area's famous waterside pubs and restaurants?
"That's the best taxi ride ever!" "Sure beats my London commute by taxi!" "The best way I've ever started, or finished, a night out!" "What a way to go to the pub!" "Simply the best way to arrive!" "I'm in a suit and on a RIB, I feel like James Bond!!!"
Fast boat trips to: Falmouth (out of St. Mawes Ferry hours), Penryn, St. Just, Mylor, Pandora Inn, Trelissick Gardens, Smuggler's Cottage and The Helford River.
Much more fun than the bus!
And I guarantee there's never a traffic jam on the high seas!!!
