Description

The Ribcraft 7.8m RIB was designed as a commercial boat, suited to operation in the harshest of environments. A swept sheer forward and deep-v hull form offer impressive performance in heavy weather while keeping the worst of the spary away from crew and passangers.

Built in 2009 to her suit her first owners requirements the Ribcraft 7.8m BLUE JACKET has benefitted from significant re-fitting in 2023.
