PB Europe: Scorpion RIBs and Protector Boats @ RIBs ONLY - Home of the Rigid Inflatable Boat

PB Europe

The company is the exclusively appointed European Distributor for Scorpion RIBs and Protector Boats (Rayglass).

Ian (Andy) Andrews is the Brand Manager for PB Europe and Ancasta for Protector Boats and Scorpion RIBs.

In this post I’ll focus on the Protector RIBs.

Protector RIBs have a track record of proven operational excellence in extremely challenging waters worldwide, this watercraft serves as a robust platform for a range of commercial applications.

Encounter them in action at prestigious events like the America’s Cup and Sail GP races, where they serve as indispensable support vessels.

I’ve posted articles and videos of the British built Scorpion RIBs as well as of the Rayglass brand that build Protector RIBs in New Zealand.

Private Investment to Strengthen Brand

Earlier this month the following news came to my attention.

Private investment is capital contributed by individuals or non-governmental entities into businesses, assets, or projects for financial returns or ownership.

UK based Scorpion RIBs has successfully obtained private investment to expand its line of British-manufactured recreational boats, thereby enhancing the brand’s presence in both the United Kingdom and European markets.


Scorpion Stealth RIB Always Great Performance

Scorpion Stealth RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat)

The Scorpion Stealth RIB is built on the same hull as the Strike model, with superb performance.

It’s an older video (2012) but it says a lot of the famous British brand. The model is no longer available though. The current Serket model is most similar, in my opinion.

This video shows the awesome features of the RIB – a particularly spacious design with a wide back bench seat, plenty of storage space in a walk-in locker, and an incredibly comfortable sun bed platform – perfect for an unforgettable experience at sea!

In contrast to the Strike model this Scorpion Stealth is quite different due to its softer setup and a full-length bow tube.

This model has a useful storage section on the front deck plus you can turn it into a sun bed for an added relaxation spot.

The RIB has two jockey seats fitted as a standard, making it okay for a comfortable ride.

I can imagine you would like to see more videos of this brand. Go for it!

The British Inflatable Boat Owners Association (BIBOA) is/was(?) the UK RIB club for those who like to cruise and socialise in Rigid Inflatable Boats. The Association was formed in 1990 following the first Round Scotland cruise/race and is recognised by both the RYA and the UIM as the UK National Authority for Rigid Inflatable Boats.
