All-aluminium RIBs?

A couple of years ago, I was diving on the Barrier Reef, and the tenders used by the Dive boat were completely aluminium RIBs. OK, so they weren't inflatable because the tubes were ally too.

They were about 5m, tiller steered, very basic.

Does anyone know who manufactures these, and whether or not they are available in the UK?

Thanetcraft make this type of boat in the UK:

Thanetcraft Limited
29 Pope's Grove
Strawberry Hill
Twickenham
Middlesex
TW1 4JZ
Tel: 020 8894 5218
Fax: 020 8894 5218

They have a web site (or used to!) at www.thanetcraft.com but it's not working and the domain name registration appears to have expired.

RIB International did a boat test on one a while back, which you can read on their web site
