Market Leading Provider

Commercial Rib Charter is the UK’s market leader in the supply of commercial charter Ribs to the Police, Military and UK Defence industry. CRC won the contract to supply Ribs to the Police for the 2012 Olympic Games as well as the 2013 G8 summit in Northern Ireland. CRC has been working for several years with a number of NATO navies to provide multiple Ribs with experienced skippers for simulated swarm attacks on warships both individually and as part of international naval exercises around the UK coastline.

The Right Boats for the Job

As well as having boats with full commercial coding, several of our boats are coded to the Police Boat Code and equipped with blue lights, sirens, loud hailers and search lights. We are also able to fit our boats with specialist communications and command and control systems as used by Dorset Police during the Olympic Games.

Bareboat or Skippered

Most Police Services charter our boats bareboat for use by their own crews. Similarly most military units who charter our boats require them on a bareboat basis as well. When a large number of boats are required for military and naval exercises, we usually provide skippers who have now developed particular expertise in the safe execution of large scale simulated swarm attacks.

Short Term or Long Term

We are able to supply military and police boats for either short term or long term hire. Short term requirements usually centre on a significant event such as a fleet review or a specific policing operation. Long term charter is available both on a contract hire basis or to cover boat requirements when other boats are unserviceable or new boats are delayed into service, etc. We generally provide maintenance and repair services as part of a contract and often contracts stipulate 24 hour availability.
