Why Ribcraft?

Ribcraft Introduction

Ribcraft are based in their own purpose built factory in Yeovil Somerset. We are one of the few British manufacturers who have the capabilities to design and manufacture the complete boat ‘in house’ giving us total quality control throughout. Our company place great emphasis on safety, durability and quality of construction, each new project undergoes a rigorous testing and commissioning schedule.


Ribcraft are keen to accommodate individual requirements and have a flexible approach when dealing with customers as diverse as leisure users from sunny Greece to factory ships in the North Sea or divers, military and commercial buyers.


The Ribcraft Concept
Ribcraft manufacture hull sizes from 4.2 to 18.0 meter’s, all of our hulls can be either used for Commercial or leisure use. Each Ribcraft is a unique project, it’s up to you how the final boat looks, your choice on colours, layouts and power options. This exercise is made easier by our sales team, all of whom are highly experienced in operating rigid inflatables. We will help you choose the right boat to meet your needs and assist you every step of the way.




Our Design
Ribcraft have been associated with an industry leading designer, the late George Marvin C Eng. m.r.i.n.a. who had the reputation of being the most experienced designer of Ribs in the industry through his works in fluid dynamics. George designed the majority of our hulls during his time with us.




Why We’re Different
Ribcraft started with one model in our range, our business has been built by earning a reputation for manufacturing reliable and well constructed boats. We haven’t been formed by a large corporation or outside funding.




You are dealing with people who have a wealth of experience in using and constructing Rigid Inflatables. Mark Gardiner who built the very first Ribcraft still oversees every boat that we build. We will offer you practical and sound advice when choosing your boat, you’re not dealing with the usual salesman selling the end product out of a brochure.
