About this Carson Interceptor 850


Super-rugged and capable all-weathers cabin RIB with stepped hull and semi-wave piercing hull design. Powered by fuel-efficient twin Suzuki DF-200 lean burn outboard engines to offer speeds of up to 40 knots.


The Carson Interceptor range of RIBs draws on the 4 decades of experience Barry Carson has amassed, designing and manufacturing advanced, heavy-duty RIB’s primarily for commercial use. With their plumb, semi-wave piercing bows and multi ‘delta’ stepped hull the Interceptor range is striking in its appearance. The ‘delta steps’ are U-shaped steps, pointing aft which recedes in form as they get to the keel line; leaving a straight, unbroken keel line; unlike other stepped hull designs. With the bow piercing through waves rather than bouncing over waves as other RIB hull forms do the boats are capable of comfortable cruising at significantly greater cruising speeds.

A bespoke, custom built, example of the Carson Interceptor 850, THE DASH was designed with the specific function of providing her owners with a highly capable and comfortable RIB from which they could explore the remoter areas of Scotland’s coastline while being self-sufficient for several days. Her aft cockpit is deep and well-protected, offer a unique drop-down boarding platform on the port side. Below decks she boasts a double berth of more than 6’5” in length along with a full galley and seating area. This Carson Interceptor 850 has and extensive inventory including highlights such as:

• Copperbot antifouling

• 2x Suzuki DF200AP, 200hp outboards

• Lenco trim tabs

• Hydraulic steering

• Dual fuel tanks

• Simard NSS EVO 3 12” MFD

Lying afloat and in commission the Carson Interceptor 850 THE DASH is a unique opportunity to acquire an immensely capable offshore cruising RIB at fraction of todays build cost. She is available for viewing strictly by prior appointment.


Having sailed the west coast for many years, we decided it was time to get from A to B more quickly and not have to fuss quite as much over rain, wind and tide. We wanted to spend more time in our favourite remote places. Taking in the splendid scenery in quieter shallow anchorages, warm and dry, in a cosy cabin with good food and wine. We found a local boat builder in Moray and The Dash was born. It has our essentials. Warm cabin. Good size galley with a great stove. Large comfy bed. Excellent storage space. Plenty of space to sit out. Practical and utilitarian. A great solid boat, made in Scotland, built for us AND the west coast; life changes however and we no longer have the time to use the boat to her potential.
