In Greece for example there are

1. 54 RIB importers
2. 42 RIB manufactures
3. 10 Outboard engine importers

The next question will be how many boats do they sell per year??
The question asked at the start of this subject was how many on the South Coast between Chichester and Poole!!!!!

I could add another several dozen if we are talking about the whole of the UK.

What about rib-eye, although they don't manufacture in this country and Ribtec won't be soon either, and then maybe Mark Pascoe wont eventually

Ribraff - Ribeye are based, along with Ribtec in Southampton, but were originally (Ribeye only) in Dartmouth and still have offices there.

But you probably knew that coming from Dartmouth!
