Ribeye first of all tookover/bought/merged with?? Ribtec. That made them much bigger than they were. Whatever could be next?

My guess for the worlds biggest (say by number of ribs built per annum) would go to Zodiac/Avon.
Any other guesses or speculation about Ribeye?

My guess is that Ribeye will use backing from their exclusive engine provider Yamaha, to buy some other big RIB manufacturer so that Yamaha can get exclusivity on powering even more Ribs.

And that's just a guess, as I knew nothing about some big anouncement until I read the earlier message on this thread

don't forget the subject please


please don't start an argue about who is the biggest rib builder in the world!
I am still looking for a new rib. I looked at the ribeye but don't like the shape. Ribtec looks very nice to me but a bit like the ribcraft which is less expensive.
Can anyone tell me something about the ribcraft????? I am from holland and it is not easy for me to come and take a look at several boats.

Thanks in advance guys!!!

I think Ribcraft are planning to show the new 7m at the London boat show in January. None at Southampton, anyway. London boat show plans will be on their web site at some stage, I'm sure.
