RIBs ONLY Welcome

This blog is devoted to the Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB). Why RIBs?

PASSION FOR RIBs

I’ve always been fascinated by the Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB). Their form, style, lay-out, toughness, seaworthiness and sportive way of navigating are the unquestionable advantages you’ll rarely find combined in another type of boat.

TYPE OF RIBs

This type of boat is also known as the 4 x 4 of the sea. Rescue services, military, police, port staff often use RIBs because of their excellent behavior, seaworthiness and solidity.

RNLI New Brighton Brave Rescue Swimming – RIB

Volunteers from New Brighton Lifeboat Station in Merseyside launched at the request of the Coastguard after reports of two people had become stranded at the end of a groyne, cut off by the tide.
