Ocean Technical Services are a RIB builder, but unfortunately they are in New Orleans. They are based on Peters Road, Harvey which is right alongside one of main waterways. Have been trying to make contact with them, but no luck. Their web site is

Check out the 'Trade Directory' section of this site for manufacturers (in the rede header at the top of the page). I believe there are about 5 American and 3 Canadian manufacturers listed in there.

RIBase
I came across AB inflatables..they are Miami/venezuela based and appear to sell RIBs as luxury tenders.

Zodiac/Avon are active in the US. Ribcrafts are built in my hometown.

You can buy many, though Ribcraft is one of the few actually manufacturing here to the best of my knowledge. Used maket is small, but keep your eyes open.
