Welcome to RIBs ONLY

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


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. Other RIBs are fitted for pleasure, fishing and racing. A RIB is indeed a very special type of motorboat.
