I'm with Andre on this for sure.
The purposeful Sea Going RIB..WE all know and love on THIS side of the Pond....for many and varied reasons isn't a "natural fit" for many North American Boaters (although there is an enlightend minority
As a consequence the Demand is low...investment R&D advocacy and advertising follows,and with so many established types from Skiffs...Bass Boats...Cruisers...and Pontoon types ect
Dominating the scene already it's not really surprising the RIB scene is a niche market.
With the proliferation of UK and European manufacturers and the HUGE Range and Choice they offer...and the constant innovation,and technical advancement....I reckon we can be justly proud of our (after all British invention) and the way we lead the World
Oh and they do make Ribcraft under licence in the U.S. Too!
