Ribquest 6.3/6.8 are both incredible boats and look fantastic. Commercial hull, leisure layout and highest quality

Thanks, I'm a bit confused about Osprey. Are they not supposed to be built in Belgium?
I now see on your website that Osprey are built in Lancashire. Why do you rig the boats in the South West and what is the connection with Belgium?

Heard nothing but good things about osprey, and seen some cracking boats.

Saw one from Belgium the other day, interested to know if they are made in UK or if they have a 2nd set of moulds?

All Osprey ribs are built in the UK... There is also a dealership in Belgium at Brugge Marine however all the boats are built here.

Nearly all Ospreys have been built in the UK over the past 25 years, most by Whitham Glassfibre, some subcontracted elsewhere. "Osprey" as a brand and the various moulds are owned by Brugge Marine Center in Belgium, all boats for both the continental market and the UK are built in Lancashire as of now. The UK "set up" can be thought of more as a factory outlet than a dealership, and there is a price difference which reflects this compared to the continent where there are "proper" dealerships.

If you would like to learn more then check out the history section on the Osprey Owners' Association website

Buy a Ribcraft. At least you know there are all built in one place and have been since day one. Yeovil..and can be specified exactly how you want it laid out!
Multiple choices on seating and layout arrangements and you deal direct.
Factory visits are encouraged to view the various stages on construction and various options can be added or changed prior to fitment.
Check em out at the Southampton boat show and have a chat to Jason!
