One of the benefits of my job is that most of the boating/marine industry magazines land on my desk once a month, and a new one turned up today, to be published quarterly:-
Superyacht Tender magazine.
Issue No.1 is a RIB Special.
Published by Ribnets old mate Hugo Montgomery-Swan, and with the usual pair of Technical advisors Paul Lemmer and Tony Lee-Elliott, Itís a very glossy high class publication.
The other usual suspect associated with the magazine is Simon Everett the photographer who coincidentally once photographed a motorcycle I built for Streetfighters magazine.
Although I prefer Work boat style Ribs, some of those shown are amazing, mostly from the likes of Goldfish, Pascoe, Capelli etc, and most over 9M.
The storage solutions for the Ribs on the Superyachts themselves are clever, my favourite being a door opening in the side of one yacht from which a big Rib slides out bow first on an overhead extending crane ready to be lowered into the water.
The website is only a holding page at the moment, so perhaps if Hugo or even tom are visiting Ribnet today they will let me have permission to scan a couple of images, or even post some themselves.
