Crazy Cornering in Police RIB Ultimate Boats 11

Motorboat and Yachting editor Hugo Andreae tested the speed of the 650 hp Police RIB by Ultimate Boats 11 at the 2022 Seawork Boat Show. It was the first one built.

But there is so much to it than meets the eye…

DANU™

It is a special RIB in terms of materials used which is a huge step forward in recycling and with corporate responsibility in mind.

It was namely built using the revolutionary DANU™, a breakthrough composite material of exceptional strength capable of being recovered, recycled and reused repeatedly.

The material is accelerating the green transition to circularity for composite material used in maritime craft, ballistic resistance, wind turbine blades, automotive solutions, aircraft construction, food processing etc.

Truly a jaw-dropping invention!

Hull
John Moxham, who is onboard and tells you all about the high-performance hull system he designed. Very interesting.
