12m RIB in build

A sneak preview of a new 12m hull that we have designed and is currently being built. Hull plug is mostly complete and now being progressed prior opr mould being taken off.

A real offshore hull with performance and efficiency in mind.

Primarily going to be a cabin RIB - but we have also looked at open arrangements and commercial lay-outs.

Really interesting design to be working on and looking forward to the final version being launched!

Being built in .... China.

By Watermark Marine, who are a British company. Lay-out is very different in full cabin version, but the hull is really adaptable and many versions are possible.

This is one of five projects that we have underway, four of which are RIBs.

An earlier build photo - before spray raisl were added.

Pic shows double chine effect and also shape in tube carrier / giving a lot of bow recovery. Also allows for different tube tapers - depending on use of boat etc.

Difficult to appreciate the size of the hull from the photo - but it is certainly a big RIB!

The China plugs are being made traditionally - and as labour costs are low the financial benefits of going to the CNC route are not there.

Having just visited the yard - have to say that the plug work is really as good as anything I have seen. In addition to the 12m they have just finished a plug for a 7.5m RIB hull and also hull & deck plugs for a 7m stepped sportsboat - again to our designs. The hull mould was pretty much complete for the sportsboat and work again looked really good - but was not ready to be taken off of the plug before I left.

I think in this country CNC is looking pretty competitive on costs - and certainly attractive on time and quality, especially the more complicated the shapes are. But as to costs - depends on many factors to give figures.

We have looked into it for a 30' race boat with a stepped hull, and once you have the drawings the costs are not as bad as you might think - and it should be a lot faster!
