Yes we did produce a RIB - as the KR6.5. We then sold the moulds onto Atlantis who have taken the project a further and a little more for the mainstream market.

Primarily we have always been a design office and really decided that was where we wanted to be and production boat building was not fitting in with those plans. We still will produce plugs and moulds to our designs for companies to go into production with or build one-off prototypes / race boats again to our designs.

Actually just finished another set of tooling for Technohull in Greece - a new stepped hulled RIB for their range to be modelled as a 668. Now working on a new offshore category B RIB for a Scottish company, approximately 8.5M LOA, and for production in early 2007.

Also working on a coulpe of other RIB designs for other companies who will do the plug / mould work.

Adam
