Compact, powerful boatbuilding
Introducing the new Ribcraft 350 Leisure
Renowned British boat builder, Ribcraft, has recently announced its new range of leisure RIBs and ambitious plans for establishing a new global dealer network. As part of this new leisure range, Ribcraft are proud to introduce the compact but mighty 350.
This 3.5m boat benefits from Ribcraft’s proven heavy-duty deep V hull, a maximum power capacity of 50hp, hydraulic steering and a portable 25 litre fuel tank to make it an attractive and versatile proposition for a range of small boat activities.
The ergonomics of this new craft are well thought out, with a Stingray console and an integral jockey seat for two people, which also doubles up as a storage locker. In fact, the Ribcraft 350 Leisure boasts 50 litres of storage capacity, which is quite impressive for a boat of this size.
Whilst it has an impressive turnkey specification including LED navigation lights and a USB-C charging point, there are still a number of optional extras that Ribcraft can provide this boat with, such as a variety of electronics, colours and decking options. A high-end fishing spec is also available for keen anglers.
The 365mm diameter tubes, which are constructed using heavy-duty Hypalon, have three chambers and a D-section rubbing strake all around.
As with all Ribcraft boats, the new 350 will be made in Britain and will benefit from the well-established build and quality assurance processes that have been so integral to Ribcraft’s success in the military and professional sectors. Built to the highest standards, every Ribcraft RIB delivers exceptional sea keeping, strength, stability and manoeuvrability.
Ribcraft CEO, Toby Adams, said, “We are proud to start bringing details of our new leisure range into the public domain. The 350, 585 and 950 will all be benefit from the DNA of our professional boats but with a much more leisure-oriented fit out on top. This has born the new 350 that can be packaged as a superyacht tender or as an ideal craft for inshore exploration and fishing. Perfect for getting up close and personal with the stunning coastlines that we are so lucky to have here in the UK. We are excited about bringing this new boat to market and expect it to be extremely popular!”
Starting at £14,999 the new Ribcraft 350 Leisure is available to order now.
