SAILING & DIVING CLUB RIBS
We can offer sailing clubs and dive clubs alike a wide range of boats to suit the needs of your club; we work closely with committees offering advice and support in your choice.
What to look for in a RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat)
When considering your purchase of a new or second hand Rib, we recommend choosing a RIB with Hypalon tubes as opposed to PVC tubes. Hypalon is a much stronger material than PVC, and better suited to the UK environment. At Powerboat sales Ltd an additional pressure relief valve will always be fitted to all dark colour tubes supplied i.e. black or navy blue, this will help protect the tubes in extreme heat. We recommend that the hull should be laminated by a professional UK laminator, and should not be imported from a country with cheap labour costs and poor quality control. The RIB should be a reputable and established British brand, with a nice high bow, and a deep-V hull ensuring a comfortable, dry ride.
Powerboat sales Ltd hold a stock of orange boats for a supply to sailing/dive clubs and will custom fit the RIB for your clubs needs, all consoles are fitted by us to your measurements normally allowing the maximum room in the rear of the RIB as a working area and all dive bottle racks are made to order to your requirements, again allowing the dive clubs a well planned boat with the maximum working area in the rear of the boat.
Please contact us with your requirements; we can custom build a Humber RIB to suit your needs, with the complete range available and an extensive choice of consoles and seating options available.
