C-Rib Commercially Proven Technology™

Our achievements with rigid inflatable boats (RIB) would not have been possible without an on-going extensive program of design, manufacturing and process assessment throughout our manufacturing plant.

The factory expands into the professional market using the team’s, extensive knowledge of building, selling and designing RIB boats for individual orders from all over the world.
So far the business activity of the company characterizes with flexible and modifiable production, both in the types of boats, as well as in the propulsion systems used. The factory has 45 full-time staff but we also work closely with a team of international specialists to ensure we have the highest quality of design, construction and mechanical preparation.

Our hulls are constructed with a hand laid-up GRP and reinforced with Isophthalic or Vinyl Ester resin. Infusion or carbon fabrics are also available. We can offer full customisation and have a “proven” choice of cabin, console, shock-mitigation seating and commercial grade accessories to choose from. There is a build quality assurance program in the form of ISO 9001:2008 and we use 3-dimensional computer aided engineering (CAD) software and our experience and knowledge ensures our craft are built to withstand years of abuse.

C-RIBs™ are pre-engineered for specific requirements: Adventure, Patrol Police Rescue, Charter and Military but all variants are based upon a proven ruggedized hull platform and thats one of the reasons our boats are used by some of the most demanding clients in some of the world’s harshest environments, from the freezing Arctic to the humidity of the Seychelles.

Operationally proven for high speed interception missions.

This 10m RIB is unique because it can be supplied as a turn-key product which is fully operationally capable from Day 1.
It can be supplied in a variety of configurations and specifications but all variants are based upon a standard ruggedized hull platform offering the client the benefit of economies of scale, inter-changeability of key components and systems and consistently capable performance, handling and sea-keeping characteristics.
The vessel hull form follows an exacting design evolved specifically for military and other professional users and is deliberately built “over-strength” to guarantee that it will withstand punishing use throughout its service life.
Our vessel designs are continually reviewed to ensure absolute client satisfaction and we view client feedback as one of our most important tools to ensure reliability and operational effectiveness.
