Fast high performance RIBs - great for long distances and day boating. The Ribeye Sports are pure thoroughbreds. The design of both the 650 and 785 models has evolved from the arduous environment of RIB racing. This monocoque deep V hull has proved itself time and again winning races and championships.
But these Sports RIBs are not just race boats. The present models have been designed with recreation and conviviality in mind. The latest design features a broader beam. This extra room gives a dimension of spaciousness and increases both passenger comfort and stowage capacity.
Compared with hard boats and many other mass produced RIBs the sports hull is very forgiving, safe and predictable offering an exceptionally comfortable and dry ride. Handling is superb which is why the sports range has terrific agility and manoeuvrability with full throttle performance.
The Sports is also the ideal RIB tourer for long distance trips, coast and island hopping and is totally suitable for family use. The powerful deep V hull is bonded to the moulded, slip resistant deck, forming a true monocoque construction. The consoles and seats have been ergonomically designed to provide maximum storage without encroaching on comfort or spaciousness. Both the 650 and the 785 have moulded spray deflectors that give dynamic lift at high speed. The 785 has a unique planning wedge, which creates better lateral stability, enhanced turning and precise tracking.
These boats also come with a range of options to enable you to personalise them to your own taste. For the Balearics we recommend the Mediterranean option pack, consisting of a bow sun-bed, sculpted rear seats with headrests, a transom ladder, a navigation A-frame and a full boat cover. Add to this our teak decking and you will have the ultimate sports RIB for the islands.
For 2009 Ribeye have also launched the Ribeye 930 details will follow very soon, or please call us for more information.
