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.

Our Patrol Police and Rescue range are unique because they can be supplied as a turn-key product which is fully operationally capable from Day 1.
They 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.
All systems are built to workboat standards and the craft has been developed to operate in a variety of difficult conditions.
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.
Our “proven” vessel hull form follows an exacting design evolved specifically for Police, Rescue and other professional users and is deliberately built “over-strength” to guarantee that it will withstand punishing use throughout its service life.
Heavy Duty S/S towing and lifting U-bolts on transom and bow and an engine protection bar to keep towing lines above the engines or alternatively a working platform over jet/sterndrive.

The craft features a new foul-weather Bimini-Top integrated to our wrap-around Patrol console to give extra protection for the crew when operating in unfavourable conditions. The craft can also be fitted with a Webasto Heater that blows hot air not only onto the windscreen, ensuring clear sight, but also onto the crew’s knees and legs.
Navigation and Command & Control Equipment:
Navigation and communication equipment is supplied fully integrated with a suitable military grade “A” frame provided for antennas and radar.
Four separate communication systems; VHF, Rakel, S-70 and GSM, are successfully integrated in a custom-built intercom, connecting wirelessly to four weather-resistant headsets. This allows the crew to move around and beyond the confines of the boat without any restrictions. These headsets are kept and re-charged on-board on a purpose-built rack saving valuable time during a quick response and thereby eliminating human error.
The Navigation equipment has been ergonomically optimized and can include; Satellite GPS Plotter, HD Radar, Depth Sounder/Log, AIS Transponder, and a Night Vision Thermal Camera. Several electronic devices can be blacked out to reduce glare at night.
The seating combination has been chosen to fit ergonomically with the console and other operating aspects of the RIB. The rear “G-SHOCK” Jockey Seats have removable backrests allowing a crew member to stay securely seated at speed whilst seeing to an injured person on a stretcher at the rear of the craft. Specially selected shock-absorbing seats for helm and navigator can also be supplied. Storage under all seats.
