Larger then 12 passenger RIB?

I am trying to source a RIB to be used as a passenger ferry that is larger than 12+2. Is there such a creature, or are there reasons that a RIB does not come in a larger size?

Thanks!

Plenty bigger - the main reason for 12 passengers are stupid laws and regulations!!!

Here is one for 22 passengers.

Delta do some pretty big RIBs

How many passengers do you want to carry? if our Parker 12 mtr Interceptor is too small we still have a 16 mtr Interceptor which can be adapted to carrying passengers.

The reason for 12 is to do with the MCA coding for commercial use

Vessels can be coded for more than 12 passengers but require more extensive coding and higher qualified skippers

I assume you are talking about a British flagged boat. Our operations will be in the Caribbean, although one of the islands is still a British colony, so MCA may apply (we are in the process of determining that right now).

Thanks for all the replies.

I should probably been more specific. I am looking for an enclosed (hardtop or softtop, either is OK) unit, with standard chair seating. This is intended to be used as an inter-island passenger ferry/taxi, so an "adventure" type boat is not appropriate.

carrying more than 12 passengers you will be classed as a passenger ship under International Marine organisation (IMO) rules. as far as i am aware there are very few flags (which would be the local certifying authority,as the MCA are in the UK) that have special rules for domestic passenger ships like the UK does (i.e classes 4,5,6) The amount of gear you would have to carry to satisfy the certification requirements would not make sense financially let alone the space you would require.
