3.5m RIB with Side Console

I'm looking for a 3.5m RIB with the console / helm position on one side so the deck of the RIB is open on the other side.

'Smaller' large yachts need a rescue boat which doesn't need to be approved but must be able to carry a person lying down.

I've been asked if I know of any that would be suitable. I don't but I thought I'd ask on here.

A reputable brand if possible please as well.

Cheers in advance

GuyC

Seen a few but not many 3.5m are wide enough, the zodiac futura might work as the console is just 2 Ali bars between the tubes?

There are some small tenders with a bench seat and side helm I have seen will try and get a link

Here you go https://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/...ion-340/104252

I got the configuration you wanted on my 5.5m Zodiac.
However, mine was built from components and the console was not a standard Zodiac one, but it did fit. It is also not a jockey seat.
I got the info from the Zodiac dealer who supplied the hull/tubes.

Some of the alternative consoles are quite narrow, but I think you might be pushed in getting someone to lay flat in a 3.5m rib both length and width wise.

Just seen saving lives at sea when they put a casualty from a beach on a stretcher on a d class lifeboat and with tiller OB it was a squeeze! The d class is a 5m craft!

my mercury 365 has an internal dimension of 860mm i dought you will get anything to fit plus a person laid down. if you go with the lightweight rigs tube to tube fixing on bars and using the original seats you would need to have a stretcher to bridge the seats otherwise you would have to thread the casualty beneath the seats & bars.
why not just go basic with tiller steer?

Carry a person lying down on the floor flat? Or on a stretcher? lying in the boat legs out but torso upright?

Thanks for the responses. The text for the requirement is below.

"A boat which is not SOLAS approved but which is suitable for rescue purposes.
The boat may be rigid, rigid inflated, or inflated, and should have a capacity for
not less than 4 persons, one of which should be assumed to be lying down.
Tubes of rigid inflatable or inflatable boats should have a minimum of 3 buoyancy
compartments."

The link kindly supplied by HDAV looks to be quite promising as the 12 VST seems to fit the bill.

Don't rescue spec Avon Sr4's have the jockey seat slightly offset to starboard so a casualty could be laid down. Definitely the 4.7's did.


Both longer than you require I know.

thought i would just mention when getting a casualty out of the water you need to have a system in place that prevents further injury ie; back injuries [where there's pain there's a claim]
