14/11/2013 - The Humber Attaque - Round Ireland 2013

After completing the Around Ireland Challenge in style, the Humber Attaque proves yet again that a vessel with an exceptional hull line and a superb racing heritage that can outperform the competition no matter what. When the Attaque was first launched it took the rib world by storm and almost 30 years on the same classic hull impresses professional and recreational users alike. No other rib has ever equalled the handling characteristics and sheer pace offered by the Attaque. Many ribs and rib companies have come and gone during this vessels life but with Humber coming up to its fiftieth year this model still holds true to all of the companies basic rules regarding performance development and design solutions. The boat is not fussy or difficult, the handling is predictable and precise and the extremely well balanced feedback and responsive nature of the boat ensures just the right amount of feedback to the pilot. Up on the plane before most and with an extra dry ride, the Attaque does exactly what a pro rib should do without any unnecessary frills. Without doubt the Humber Attaque offers the adrenalin pumped rib drive of your life……
Of all the vessels entered into the Around Ireland Challenge the Attaque proved to be more than equal to the challenge, when conditions worsened the Humber Attaque took it in its stride and when other vessels faltered it just kept performing, offering secure and faultless handling in sea states that lesser boats and drivers would be rightly nervous about. The confidence that the Attaque will cope with just about anything you could throw at it is at the heart of the fondness with which professional rib drivers and owners refer to the Attaque. A true classic of British Rib design, a rib that has seen countless copies and emulators but none have captured the complete experience of the Humber Attaque.
