16m Redbay Rib

My morning coffee (ribnet ) break was cheered by my first sight of the new Redbay Website - and this bad puppy...

"Stormforce 16

Planned for delivery late 2010 early 2011 the Stormforce 16 will be a completely new departure for Redbay Boats. The concept is to design a large commercial RIB and the main design brief is to deliver a vessel capable of carrying up to 30 passengers at speeds of up to 30 knots. We are working closely with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency in the UK and the Department of Transport in Ireland to ensure that this boat complies with the latest legislation."

Description and Concept pic from: www.redbayboats.com

Best of luck lads, for getting her through a Mountainous Sea of Paperwork

that's a nice bit of kit, that design makes for a real safe transporter and because of the shape it will self right on it's own, if you flipped it and providing the doors were closed, i can see lot's of applications for that boat

Someone's got to ask....

Why would a Stormforce 16 have SF-14 printed on her bow ?

Is it simple modesty , or does it help keep the mooring fees down ?

Hardly. I happen to rate the 6.5 and 7m Ospreys as being as being right up there in in those size ranges. I don't pimp myself for the whole range.
