The Worlds First fully inflatable RIB

De Batts RRIB Associates Ltd was founded in 2003 by four very experienced RIB users who saw that there was a requirement for an inflatable that had the operating characteristics of a conventional RIB. It also needed to be lighter and more easily transportable but still perform well.

The team consists of three ex-servicemen(RN/RM./MoD) who as users have operated boats, been involved with the design and accepted them from industry for the last 20 years. The fourth member of the team is very experienced in the production of various inflatable craft for rescue organizations and river expeditions. The De Batts team have spent the last four years designing and perfecting the World's first fully inflatable RIB.

Existing customers range from governments, life saving organizations and commercial companies who require a fast, light, load carrying craft that outperforms other inflatables but does not require large engines to gain the performance nor does it require launching trailers. The craft rolls up neatly and is easily carried by two men and two boats rolled up fit readily into a 4x4.

RRIBs are based on a standard production model which are adapted to suit the users requirements. Client requirements are carefully monitored and discussed in detail to understand the role the craft will play and to make maximum use of the experience of the design and build team.

Typical applications for this craft are :
