Rigid Inflatable Boat Development (RIB)

Rigid Inflatable Boat Development (RIB)


Here is an example of one of the most successful designs the company has created. It has been in ongoing production for over 25 years.

The design of the opening bow section on the craft allows for the easy access to and from the vessel, which makes it ideal for rescue operations. This was inspired by the landing craft used by Allied forces in the D-Day Landings during World War 2. The door is operated hydraulically by a manual pump. This is a key safety feature as it gives the operator total and immediate control in the event of a person becoming trapped by the closure of the door.

This vessel is also suitable as a work boat.
