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.

CRC Galaxy

Commercial Rib Charter's largest cabin Rib, the 15m 'Galaxy' has been designed for use offshore. 'Galaxy' is MCA Cat 1 coded (up to 150nm 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.

CRC Voyager

Sister ship to CRC Galaxy, Voyager is our 15m aluminium Crew Transfer Rib. Taking the decision to build CRC Voyager from aluminum has greatly reduced the overall weight without losing any of her unique design features, ultimately resulting in a slightly more fuel efficient vessel.
CRC Voyager is capable of carrying 12 PAX and 3 Crew 60nm offshore with a cruising speed  of 26kts. Her shallow draft enables her to creep in to waters as shallow as 70cm even with a full compliment of passengers on board.
