The making of a GEMINI WR880 RIB – A RIBs ONLY Exclusive!
Amongst the many RIB brands, GEMINI is positioned as a commercial RIB. These heavy duty RIBS are built in Cape Town, South Africa, sinds 1979. They’re built to last. So is this RIB GEMINI WR880.
Gemini Marine has been the sole provider to the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) of South Africa for rescue craft from 4 meter to 8.5 meter Cabin class operating along the rugged South African coastline since 1984.Gerhard Neethling, Global Sales & Marketing at GEMINI
RIBs ONLY got an exclusive look behind the scenes how the RIB GEMINI WR880 is built (look here at the finished RIB). Some steps in the process have been omitted for trade secret reasons. This is not strange.
As a nautical journalist, I visited several shipyards. In every company I was not allowed to photograph or write about certain things for the same reason.
Many thanks go to:
- GEMINI Marine’s Tech Director & Founder Jeff Stephens
- Gerhard Neethling, Global Sales & Marketing
- Henning Blaauw, Chief Operations Officer
- And also to all the other employees for doing such a great job!
RIBs ONLY also wants to thank Arjen Maan, Company Director of novi marine in the Netherlands, importer and distributor of GEMINI RIBs.
