Time to dream your destination

Time to Put Your Mind to it

You decided to go boating and thoughts of cruising on open waters, discovering hidden spots, and enjoying water sports begin to take center stage.

If you’re itching to spend your upcoming summer soaking in the sun and sea, now’s the time to think about getting yourself a Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB).

I’ve crafted several articles to assist you in navigating the process of purchasing a Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) so that you can make an informed decision and select the optimal one that aligns with your requirements:

Time is of the Essence

Anyone who loves boating knows that once the sun starts shining and temperatures rise, everyone and their grandma wants to be on the water.

Deciding on a RIB early means you beat the “summer rush”.

Not only do you get the boat you want, but you might also snag some sweet pre-season deals from manufacturers and dealers itching to get their boats on the water.

Waiting until the last minute to decide on a boat can be a bit like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

The cool models might be gone, and you could end up settling for something less than ideal for you.

Decide on a RIB now, and you’ll have your pick of the litter, ensuring your boat is perfect for your style and plans.

Grab the Opportunity

Many RIB manufacturers let you pick your colors and add extra features.

By deciding early, you’ve got time to get everything just right. Plus, it gives you the chance to get to know your boat, complete any training you might need, and make sure you’ve got all the safety gear on board.

So, if the idea of spending your summer out on the water has got you daydreaming, don’t wait. Now’s the time to decide on a Rigid Inflatable Boat.

Grab the opportunity, get your boat ready, and get set for a summer filled with unforgettable moments on the water.

The waves are calling, and your RIB is waiting to take you on an unforgettable summer adventure.

YouTube Stats

As of December 5, 2023, the RIBs ONLY channel has a tally of 701 subscribers and have published 29 videos so far.

Having 1,000 YouTube subscribers means unlocking the ability to finally create video chapters and thus improving the user experience. But we’re not there yet…

Especially for the most recent video published today.

A Possibility of Making Money?

Monetization prospects for the YouTube channel are extremely limited, commencing only after reaching 1,000 subscribers. I’ll explain below why I won’t be able to buy a bigger RIB.

This is the formula to know how much a channel can earn on a monthly basis.

Views per month, divided by 1,000 and then multiplied by the RPM (Revenue Per Mille).

If the channel has 1,000 subscribers ánd yearly 4,000 views that’s when you count. In 2023 the channel got 4,724 views so far. The conditions are met so we’re good (but no ads in the videos, so this is hypothetical).

But … this year (2023 so far) the average is 393 monthly views. With an assumed RPM of €2 the formula returns € 0.78 earnings per month.

The yearly income based on november (before taxes) is € 9.43 which is the equivalent to the cost of 1 pancake where I reside.


As previously mentioned, the primary focus is on enhancing the overall visitor experience.
