Has anyone heard of RIBs NI

Hi Guys,
Has any heard of this builder ,Ribs NI, looking at a 6m at the moment,
no identifiable branding. The seller says that they were sold by
John McAleese Marine in Armagh but I cant seem to get any information.
Tubes are hypalon by henshaws.
Any opinions appreciated

Aaron

RIBs NI

Hi RIBs NI were actually made by Mc Aleese Marine in Armagh. They had someone mould the hulls and fitted them out themselves. Is the boat CE marked?

unknown rib-maybe someone knows

recently bought unusual rib 4.3m x 2.4m wide. The tubes were shot had it retubed by northcraft .Brilliant job, and totally recommended.They had to make the tubes bespoke as no ID. Can anyone identify its builder.
There are pics in my album, its original tubes were yellow, but had been painted blue when repaired with inner tube.

Well, the wraparound tubes look like Dunlop, but the hull looks a bit like a Brig.

Thanks for that, I know where your coming from with the Dunlop style.i Hadn't thought about brig.
I have sent pics to some other builders including falkland who do a similar wide 4.3m.
Another clue is that moulded into the sides of the deck are 4 channels with steel rods across for tie downs maybe for boxes etc.
So my thoughts are that it was for a commercial fishery job.
