That's X-RIB, the Swedish manufacturer, not to be confused with RIB-X (aka Falcon) or XS RIBs (Barnet Marine)!

There was an accident early this summer with a x-rib, they think the guy dived into a wave and the console got loose and a man flew over board, unfortunetly the accident took a 50 year old mans life.
