Just what I've researched from the net. They make tunnel hulled fully inflatables both round nose (surfcats) and fiberglass notice (in the style of zapcats).

I don't think they appreciated Pascoe's style of humour - there should be a warning on the entry forms.

That's a surprise... these are the guys who's new RIB was wrecked by a DHL van on the way to RIBex - so they spent the fuel budget on champagne and strawberries instead and held a 'wake' for the dead RIB!

Thank you for all your help

I guess this is a new company and I was wondering if any of you had seen the range. Looking at the web site and being a relative novice on hulls they look the same as the Ballistic ranges ? Is this correct ? I was also curious to know if any are afloat to see on the south coast. In respect of DHL lorry taking out their Rib I hope they called the police ............................

Again thank you all for your help

I don't think anyone would be saying that they'd smoothed the ride if they were the same as Ballistics! Fast they maybe but they are certainly not smooth.

Hi there I was looking only at the Hull design and having a friend who owned a Ballsitic they appear to be one and the same however I am sure many of you will now correct me in this assumption. There web site images appear to show a very stylish craft which we are keen to see in the flesh and trial.
You are Right the Ballistic whilst been a very very harsh ride are great boats but not for my wife she wants something akin to A BMW 5 0r 7 series in looks and comfort and style.

I had a chat with them and they claim to have designed and built the hull themselves - the boat they had is the development hull, and I believe there will be alterations to the final boat.

Surely you're not jealous of the way they turned misfortune into a PR exercise Jason?

Anyway, I'm sure the 5.5m they had at Ribex had a Boating Dynamix builders plate on it!

Ballistic Ribs ????

I recentley met a gentleman on the south coast who stated he was the builder of Ballistic Ribs I think his name was Nicholas Parish ???? and he worked with a Mr Lemmar ????he had built a superb looking outfit with teak decks etc . My question is who exactly is the UK distrubutor for this brand as I have now seen several sources who claim to be the so called OFFICIAL importers ???? !!!!!! ????? however the factory tells me they are dealing with various parties in the UK with CEASAR being one.............I am confused.
I have also considered this brand but want the assurance in the event of a problem there is somebody behind to offer support. Finally I have seen adverts in Rib international magazine for this Mr Lemmer.............Has anybody on here dealt with him and if so how did you find him ? Was the service good. All replies will be responded to.

Assuming you mean Mr Paul Lemmer? Lovely chap, bought a boat from him once, would drink with him on any occasion but buy a boat from him twice? Maybe not.

Nick did own Ballistic, but now JBT and Boatingdynamix jointly own it, and we dont make boats for anyone else.
As the Ballistic hull is so good many people have tried to copy it, there is only one genuine Ballistic and that belongs to us please see www.ballisticribs.com
And if you have any other questions please call us thanks JBT

This is Paul Lemmer responding to your enquirey. If you would like to know what I am like, then I would be pleased to meet you and you can decide for yourself; I have always believed in finding things out first hand, rather than trusting a third parties opinion!

I am not associated with Ballistic RIBs or Nick Parrish but know both the man and the product quite well and the history/origins behind the product and many other RIB products, very well. Happy to discuss these issues privately but not on an open forum and I can be contacted by email, telephone and even by 'old fashioned post'!
