A new brand on RIBs ONLY: Stormway. It’s a special brand, built by Norwegian Custom Marine at Isebakkeveien 103, 1719 Greåker, Norway.
“The 900 RIB Event is a new boat from Stormway, and as in true Stormway spirit, the boat has a completely unique “racing hull” with extreme speed and sea characteristics.
The Event edition has 10 or 12 jockey seats in front of the console and Stormway’s specially designed double driver’s seat in the back for the pilot and copilot.
The aluminum chair has both standing and sitting functions and offers an optimal driving position in all conditions. The boat can also be rigged with jockey seats both in front and behind the console.
We offer several engine options, both single and double mounting, and as one of the few manufacturers of event boats can offer double Mercury 175hp diesel outboards.This is a very economical and reliable alternative to petrol engines. Speed with 2 x 175hp diesel outboards is a whopping 55 knots!”*

This Italian built Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) is the MAR.CO R-EVOLUTION 26. A very special line is drawn over the RIB. Powered by a 450 hp Mercury Racing outboard, this 8 meter RIB will certainly fly.
When our Greek friends from e-Ribbing got to test one, it had twin Yamahas F300. At that time there were 6 passengers on board, 800 l fuel and 100 l fresh water. The Greek built Rigid Inflatable Boat did 51 knots max. The cruising speed was 35 knots. And the fuel consumption was about 84 l/hour or 2.42 l/nm.
We received a press release from Enigma Powerboats. It is a new British Powerboat Manufacturer. The renderings show a good-looking RIB. You’ll find the specs below.
The hull design with a triple ventilated step was created by naval architect Adam Younger. We all know then that it’s going to be a fast RIB with excellent behaviour. Petter Martens of Beserk Designs also joined the team for delivering a great RIB design. Both are members of RIBs ONLY.
So for their first RIB it looks very promising indeed.
Enigma launches a 38ft Super-RIB
After an extensive design and build programme, Enigma Powerboats Ltd. has launched its debut vessel, the Enigma 38. The first model has been produced as an open day boat, but the platform has been designed to be modular, with various configurations available.
“With the launch of the Enigma 38. we are moving Rigid Inflatable Boat design to a new level, with a huge focus on style. safety and usability. Inspired by super car aesthetics and quality, we have pushed beyond the boundaries of traditional super-rib design in all areas.
The Enigma 38 utilises an expansive 3.4m beam. allowing a diverse range of applications for a CAT-B offshore powerboat. capable of over 100mph. We are very excited to finally unveil the Enigma 38 and will shortly be commencing sea trial demonstrations.”- Debbie Hood, CEO
This new 2023 model is the mid-sized family rib from Highfield. It has plenty of space and is lightweight to handle because recyclable aluminium is the main ingredient of this rigid inflatable boat (RIB).
Another great trip around the Baleares done by some members of the Belgian Pneumatic Club back in 2018. The total distance covered was 650 nm. It’s a half an hour family video so sit back and relax. More videos and information from the club.
