Ribworker Jet Boats Precision Manoeuvring Display

Shaun White, who designed the Ribworkers (and is driving the yellow RIB), was asked to play around and demonstrate what makes these boats so unique: awesomely tough workboats, precision manoeuvring but also fast and fun (see the end bit).

Ribworkers are capable of power-braking or spinning on their axis – slowly for precision manoeuvring even at high revs, faster for jet boat spins for exciting passenger trips.

The first boat, built 37 years ago, is still working as a salvage and rescue vessel.

This video, shot some years ago, shows a display: all water users were warned to keep clear and that they would get wet and both RIB skippers were highly experienced.

Williams DieselJet 505 SOLAS Testing

I always find these kinds of tests very impressive and well worth watching. This time it’s a Williams RIB that is put to the test.

This video shows numerous tests a RIB must pass in order to be approved.

I have more videos of these kind of tests here on RIBs ONLY. Like this ones from GEMINI, Ribeye and Sportis to name a few.

This one is my absolute favourite. It’s a slam tests from a RIB … that never slams: it’s a Rafnar. Awesome video by our member Tom Bettle.

About these tests

SOLAS has been around for some time. The main objective of the SOLAS Convention is to specify minimum standards for the construction, equipment and operation of ships, compatible with their safety.

Custom SportJet 345 Williams RIB – Walkaround

“Featuring this exclusive Pearlescent colour flip paint job and it’s strongly contrasting upholstery in Hitch Cirulea. We’ve given this tender a special Carbon effect tube and of course, it wouldn’t be a custom tender if it didn’t come complete with bespoke brushed stainless steel.

All in all, these customisations make for a tender that is guaranteed to turn heads at sea.”
