They are not uncommon, but less popular as they are more expensive to make
as each hull has to be fabricated. With a GRP hull once you have built the mould you can more or less bang em out at will, granted that the laminator has to have skill to do a good job but it's a much quicker process.

Ocean Dynamics are probably this counties most known Ali rib manufacturers fantastic boats that they are and there is somebody on Hayling Island making them. They might be called Pepe Boatyard

I also believe that a Canadian company called Carswell industries make them but their delivery time is unbelievably long.

Not quite the same as what ollyit has shown us on ebay. the 4m one has alloy sponsons . Making it a hard boat not a rib. I quite like conventional alloy ribs, but dont like these things with aluminium 'tubes'. About as desirable as a concrete yacht..

Carswell Industries operates Titan Boats. Titan Boats and Polaris Inflatable Boats are both Canadian companies that manufacture aluminum hulled RIBS as well as aluminum hardboats. To the best of my knowledge neither of them manufacture hard-tube boats such as what ollyit had referred to.

www.TitanBoats.com

www.polarisboats.com

BTW - would have to agree with Neville about the concrete yacht analogy.
