There is a large yellow rib in the next town to me (Newport, Co Mayo). The rib is an ocean rib. It looks like a fine strong boat. Fitted with a yam with counter rotating props. Big console to shelter behind.

Hi.

The website is still up:

Ocean Ribs New Ribs Boats For Sale In The UK Ocean Ribs New Ribs Boats For Sale In The UK

Although I've not seen Malcolm around (he lives near me) for about a year, and haven't had cause to call them.

They moved a few years ago, slightly more inland, and were at the time producing more fish farm tanks than RIBs, if any at all.

Better contact details are on the Purewell fish farm equipment website:
Purewell Fish Farming Equipment Ltd – For all your fish farming needs!

I was always expecting to see the company up for sale as the brothers would no doubt be looking to retire, but may have missed that opportunity.

Nasher.

Thanks for all the replies. I've tried contacting Malcomb to no avail. I'm interested in the large console they used to build rather than a whole boat. I'll keep trying!
