They are Falcon RIBs, manufactured in South Africa and imported by RIB-X:

Rib-X
Brockhall Buildings
Pebble Hall Farm
Theddingworth
Leicestershire
LE17 6NJ

Tel: 01455 554501 (07739 809060)

I thought they did had a web site at www.rib-x.co.uk but there's only a title page there now.

Although Falcon owners seem to be pleased with their boats there have been some very unflattering pictures posted here which apparently show a Falcon under construction . . .
