    Sealver RIB 626



    I received by Sealver boat finally, what an experience! I will try and post some reviews on how it works, etc, so far, it is pretty awesome, I can easily fit 8 people or so, and go out around the lake

    So far some observations:
    1. I have two seadoo's that I have used with it: a 2015 RXTX 260 and a 2017 RXTX 300 with dual impeller for flyboarding. The dual impeller on the 300, makes it run worse than the stock impeller all because of limits on top end speed
    2. When using the Sealver, the machine really does not use that much more fuel than without, i was able to go 16 miles or so and only used 2/3 tank of gas
    3. The handling and turning of the Sealver is absolutely outstanding, way beyond what I expected, the shape of the sealver really allows it track well in the water and it can turn on a dime
    4. When out in Chop water, with 2-4 foot waves, the inflatable part of this seems to absorb waves very well
    5. I am able to trailer both the Sealver and seadoo together with an extended, modified trailer
    6. connecting and disconnecting the machine and boat is unbelievably smooth and easy, see video

    I haven't had much free time, I will send more info when I have a chance

    Here is link to a video with using the Sealver and my jetblade hydroflight equipment attached, it works very well, except it tends to get the passengers wet.

    in the process of trying to order a 626 direct from sealver because the export salesman said only the fiberglass boat versions are made in canada so i would have to import.<br>
    <br>
    my questions are:<br>
    <br>
    - where did you source the custom trailer and approx how much did it cost?<br>
    - i live off lake erie so have similar 2-3 ft chop everyday and with windy conditions we get 3'+. how does it handle the waves on "nicer days"? one reason why i want to 626 is the salesman side it would absorb the waves better than the 656.<br>
    - did they discount the price any? my quote is 22k euros pre tax, inport, transportation fees, etc for the 626 wake version. i would like the bimini top so hope they can add it as an option. <br>
    - overall do you like it? the rep said i should consider purchasing the new Z version because i really wanted so additional seating like the 656, but the z7/z8 are more than double the price.<br>
    <br>
    thanks!

    2/3 of the fuel capacity consumed in only 16 miles? Seriously?
