Think it may have been Zodiac that made 2 in the late 1960s for an expidition or long voyage they were about 60 feet long .

Amphitrite was 65 feet long with a beam of 27 feet built by Zodiac in 1960 for an expedition by Jacques Cousteau
for sea trials she was fitted with 8 x 80 hp outboards but was originally going to be powered by diesel water jets .
Not a rib but an inflatable though.

RIBase
IMO a 'hard' boat with a permanent mounted full length fender is not a rib!!
