The Parker 650 is an upgrade of the very popular Parker 630 model and is available with either single or twin outboards or diesel inboard. The latest super economical and lightweight Mercury Diesel QSD 2.0 (150 or 170HP) with the Alpha One or Bravo 1 sterndrive, Smartcraft Engine Management and Digital Throttle and Shift levers is proving incredibly popular. It achieves in the region of 36/38 knots, yet burns as little as 8 litres per hour at a comfortable cruising speed of 28 knots. The 650 has one of the smoothest and driest rides of any RIB under 7m and is equally at home as a general-purpose family runabout or as a serious offshore cruising RIB. It’s very much a performance craft for extended cruising and for commercial, military or security use.
For rescue applications the Parker 650 can be fitted with self-righting systems and twin Mercury 90 ELPTO outboard engines with Post Immersion Start systems.
