The RIB shown in our header is a Gemini WaveRider 850 powered by a Suzuki 300 hp. Novi Marine is the importer and dealer for Gemini in the Benelux and Europe where there are no dealers. Novi Marine is a friend of RIBs ONLY.
The WR 850 can be seen in use with Rescue, Patrol, Tactical operations, Anti-Terrorism, ship boarding, Military, Commercial charter and thrill ride operations in the majority of our 40+ countries that they export to. More photos below for the true passionate.
Ribsonly.com started as a blog with its Facebook group on May 1st 2017. RIBs ONLY itself began in 2008 as a forum. Since then many things have changed. Now then years later I actually have two reasons for popping the champagne bottles. So join me in the countdown to celebrate RIBs ONLY’s anniversary.
The number of 150 RIB brands on ribsonly.com has been reached. You can check them in the right sidebar by selecting the categories. Do comment if yours is missing.
So far these blog post make up the top 3 since RIBs ONLY turned into a blog. Seems you like rough seas as well 😉
Thank you for visiting ribsonly.com!
RIBs ONLY started as a forum back in 2008. On May 1st 2017 I decided to build a blog from scratch connected to the RIBs ONLY Facebook group. With an average of 50 videos per month I now surpassed the magical number of 500 videos.
I mainly look for videos from Rigid Inflatable Boat shipyards and media companies which offer a better continuity. My goal is to provide the RIB fanatics a wealth of information. I also hope to interest visitors with the RIB through our mutual passion.
Welcome to RIBs ONLY. Ribsonly.com is devoted to Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs).
This type of boat is known as the 4×4 of the sea. Rescue services, military, police, port staff often use RIBs because of their excellent behavior and solidity. A RIB is indeed a very special boat.
Nowadays, RIBs are being build for other purposes like family trips. Some Rigid Inflatable Boats have a cabin and sundecks. Other RIBs are fitted for fishing and racing.
We also have a Facebook group with the same name (type RIBs ONLY in the search field).
Yes, RIBs ONLY is on Twitter. I’ve been giving it a lot of thought about using that channel as well. Passion took the upper hand and RIBs ONLY is tweeting. You can address the account by using @ribsonlydotcom. If you’re twittering about RIBs it would be great if you would use these hashtags: #4x4ofthesea and #ribsonlydotcom. Are you on Twitter with your RIB, let me know and I will follow you!
Started with the new ribsonly.com on May 1st 2017, this is the five hundredth post. Amongst them 430 are videos and 17 are slideshows. Prior to the blog, RIBs ONLY was a forum started in 2008, 4 years after Facebook went online.
Today, after 9 months the 500th blogpost is here. It calls for a small celebration and I’ll be cracking a bottle of champagne together with my wife. Many thanks to all the fans and visitors.
Long live RIBs ONLY!
