Ribeye Boats A683 Chilly Winter Drive

The Ribeye winter boat show 2023 will take place from January 30 to February 4. And they offer a good formula.

“The whole family is welcome; for those who want to venture out to sea can experience a fully immersive sea trial with our expert team and for those who want to stay back at base, let the team at Ribeye spoil you with some hospitality by the fire pit.”

Specs of this RIB are in the beginning of the video and if you want to see more of this model, click here.

GALA Boats Great Walkaround at TIBS 2023

Canada designs the Gala boats and started in 2015. They use aluminum to make the hull.

After searching a lot (the website only mentions “‘manufactured in Europe”) I finally found this decisive information: “The city of Kharkiv in Ukraine (…) is home to 3 well-known brands in the European RIB sector: Grand, Brig and Gala. The Grand shipyard also has a factory in Odessa, on the shores of the Black Sea.” (source)

This walkaournd video was shot during the Toronto International Boat Show.

The largest Rigid Inflatable Boat (today) is 7.8 meter (P8 model) but they have mostly smaller RIBs as you can see in these well-selected videos.
