Large Tornado RIBs
For over four decades, Tornado Boats has been a pioneer in crafting Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs) designed for both events and seafaring.
They started in 1975 in England. Their first RIB was a 5.5 m equipped with a 50 hp engine, which was considered quite substantial during those days.
Nowadays they more than doubled in size.
They are now located in Lystrup, 5 kilometers north of Aarhus, Denmark.
I’ve published more Tornado RIB videos for you to enjoy. Just click here.
This video was published on the Tornado Boats Channel YouTube channel.
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 (RIBs).
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.
This video shows many fantastic looking RIBs. It really is a must see RIB video. The race was called “Highlands and Islands RIB Race” held from 10 to 16 June 1990.
I improved the video image quality and upscaled it to 4K. To enjoy it to the fullest, change the settings in the YouTube video to 4K: click settings then quality then 2160p (= 4K).
A brand new Tornado 8.5 m RIB with 300 hp joins the already impressive fleet of the RIB School Scheveningen (The Netherlands). It’s their 5th addition.
25 years ago, the Hague Rescue Brigade hired both founders as lifeguards. They learned a lot about the immense power of the sea during those years and this has inspired their respect for it.
With this crucial knowledge in mind, safety and excellent equipment have the highest priority at their RIB School. And that’s how we like to see it!
