NEED NEW TEXT – The Ribcraft 10.5 is a new addition to the Ribcraft fleet for 2006 and follows the Ribcraft concept of integrating strength, build quality and seaworthiness. She has a classic high sheer bow, convex warped deep vee hull and a generous 3.5 metre beam.
Developed from the highly successful Ribcraft 9.0 metre, the Ribcraft 10.5 is designed to carry crew, payload or passengers over short or long distances whatever the conditions. The increased beam, waterline length and internal space enable her to have greater configurations of internal layouts and power plants.
Whether propelled by outboard or inboard engines she gives a superb performance; her responsive handling and surefootedness make her a pleasure to helm in any sea state.
As complete boat builders, Ribcraft can tailor your boat to exacting requirements; this included selecting your power units. Our most common setups are
- Twin outboard motors
- Single or Twin diesel inboard sterndrive
- Single diesel inboard jet drive
Ribcraft 10.5 has an cross linked inner matrix construction making her incredibly strong; the lay up is to commercial specification. The tubes are bonded to the hull over an extended tube flange that gives them far superior bonding strength between tube and hull than conventional flanges. The end product is an immensely strong hull and tube that meets M.C.A. approval.
