Mr RIBquest... would you be so kind as to give us a short history lesson on your company - as the RIB world geeks, most RIBnetters would be interested.

I would also like to know if you were involved in the initial boat i saw at RIBex in 200x (3,4 or 5 ish?) i am sure it was your first boat and i did not think the finish was too good on the GRP and hope it has improved.

I'm sure members of this forum would be interested in seeing your plug making process. Would you please post some photos?

RIBQUEST LTD “The Facts”…

In 2006 the reigns were pulled in on Ribquest Ltd (Manchester) and marketing ceased, at this time all existing orders were completed to close there order book.

This was due solely to the parent company SUNQUEST pulling in its resources and concentrating on its core business which had its own problems. SUNQUEST later went into administration and were taken over in July 2007.

The Assets of RIBQUEST LTD were purchased by David Rose in October 2007.

RIBQUEST is now a family owned and run business, with no links to the old company. Trading from new workshops & offices in Dronfield, North Derbyshire.

The combined background of our management and workforce range from the Marine engineering industry through to motor sport engineering, GRP & woodworking craftsmen all being experienced rib enthusiasts. This experience enables us to build Rib’s to a standard and quality finish that will withstand the arduous conditions that they are expected to operate in with total reliability.

We build to order bespoke Ribs from 4.8m - 9.5m, for both leisure and commercial use for a range of customers including the emergency services – Police – club safety boats – fish farms – dive organizations – and leisure craft for the serious user.

All our Rib’s have a 5 year warranty.

Our deep V hulls have a proven track record for providing a comfortable dry ride, with very capable sea keeping in the most inhospitable conditions.

Newly designed GRP consoles and seating are all produced in house to ensure that quality of workmanship is second to none.

A comprehensive range of hypalon tube style & Colours and a range of GRP colours are available.

Ribquest have supplied boats to RIB INTERNATIONAL MAGAZINE for extensive testing, with excellent results and praise, recent and future articles will endorse this.

David Rose Director.

the original question being "ribquest or ribcraft" "any views" being a ribquest owner i felt that entitled me to give my view. this in fact is my 1st rib having owned several speed boats i decided to change to ribs, after 6 months research and advice from other rib owners i chose ribquest because like everyone else i look for quality service and value for money
