Halmatic Rib Information

Hi, I have purchased an older Halmatic. I would like to know what model it is , year and what is the max horse power that can be used on it and so on. I would appreciate any help. I have contacted Halmatic several times with no response. Here are some pictures of the boat.

Thanks, Paul G

Hello Paul,

Welcome to ribnet. Nice to see another canuck on the site. Unfortunately I dont have the answers you need. Judging from the size 22ft? I would say that max power would be twin 150 2 stokes or twin 90 4strokes due to weight. just a guess. Where did you find the boat?

take care and enjoy the new boat!!

Paul hi and welcome to Ribnet. Halmatic work mainly for Gov and RN as no one else can afford there prices and can be quite difficult to extract information from. Tim is selling an Arctic at the moment so you could compare photos. http://www.sculling.org.uk/other/arctic22.zip.

Pacifics (the diesel versions) had a deck or stern plate with the year and build number so 8912 would be 1989 and the twelth boat off the production line.

We have certainly seen 2 x 115s on an Arctic before so you could change those 75s.

Pete

Hi Paul,

I'm not the greatest expert, but it looks like an Arctic 22 from the eighties.

Arctic 22s had twin 140hp Suzuki 2 strokes on them in the early 90s when the marines / MOD Police had them.

Tough looking boat you have there - Halmatic have a fantastic name but supply mainly to commercial/military users - not geared up for talking to the public!!!

Have you ever had a RIB before??? Hope you have great fun with it - remember they are much better in the rough than they are in a flat calm!!!

The MoD police Artic 22's now use twin Mariner 90's but i have to say its a tad under powered. We are just about to fit a pair of 115hp Opti's to give them some more power. Will let you know how it goes. A couple of years ago they were also using Mariner 135 Carb engines, they were a bit to much, that V6 has alot of grunt hence they went for the 90's in the end.

Halifax, NS? Damn we're practically neighbours! Suspect its an Artic 22. Built as we say in england, like brick shit houses. Assuming condition is ok then a good solid boat for the North Atlantic! Where did you come across her? (I ask as I have been idly browsing for a RIB for sometime but they are as rare as rocking horse poo this side of the Atlantic.)

They are good boats but are not popular over here in the secondhand market as they are heavy (and consequently very expensive to run ) which is why the hulls usually so for about 3 to 4 k in good condition

How much is the gasoline over there!

Halmatic Rib Information

The boat was purchased through a private sale but, I believe it came from a government action before that. Thanks!
