Offshore Ribs with Offshore Sea-keeping
Ribs have a good inherent offshore capability because of their deep ‘V’ hull profile and buoyant design. The flex within the tubes also absorbs energy in a big sea increasing comfort for passengers; this capability is referred to as a ‘variable geometry hull’. Ribs working from ships may be deployed and recovered during inclement weather without damaging either Rib or mother ship.
Ribcraft and Delta Ribs – Standing the Test of Time
Commercial Rib Charter have been acquiring Ribcraft and Delta boats for over 15 years. Valuable experience has taught us that only boats properly designed and robustly built by a good firm stand the test of time. Our boats and the equipment on board are the best on the market.
Commercial Rib Charter's largest cabin Rib, the 15m 'Galaxy' has been designed for use offshore. 'Galaxy' is MCA Cat 1 coded (up to 150 from shore) for 12 passengers and 2 crew; she is fitted with SOLAS approved Henriksen hooks and supplied with a deck cradle to allow safe launching from ships. Additionally a fully SOLAS approved Fast Rescue Craft 'Seafire' is also available with cradle for offshore operation.
