Year of Manf on Ribcraft from HIN codes

Can anybody explain if and how Ribcraft incorporate the year of manufacture into the HIN codes stamped on to the transoms?

Chris, all Hin should be standard.
Example below : GB country the craft is produced in. ZZZ is the manufacturers unique code which has to be registered with / issued by an official body - BMF etc. The next five are down to the manufacturer just a unique set of number and or letters.The next letter is month of manufacture A being January. Last is four numbers, the first 07 is the year of manufacture, the last two indicate the model year e.g. if the boat was designed in 02 and nothing changes the manufacturer should keep this model year in reality most make a small change and use the same year of manufacture so not to look out of date.
Hope this helps.


e.g. GB ZZZ 00000 A 0702

Hi Jim,

Almost right although the 0 in front of the 7 won't be there. It should only be 14 characters.

Duncan sorry for the delay.
I agree with you if the boat was pre 2010, but now we have double digit years it must have four digits to finish?

No, it's still fourteen characters, but isn't it model year followed by year of manufacture.

Found this on line, as usual clear as mud. I have a copy of the RCD but it shows pre double digit years.
We have two boats in build, I will call the RYA next week and let you know how I get on.

It's not the easiest thing to understand, as you get conflicting info from the RYA, BMIF and RINA.

I still build to the original set of regs that I conformed to when I achieved my RCD certification.

Having had a re-read of the HIN ruling, (first time in the last 10 years ) it seems the last 2 digits are indeed the model year, which to me is a bit confusing, as I'm used to US boats having the last 2 as the year of manufacture.

Had Mike Beggs over this week to look at our new Shearwater Venture 10m for the Cat B assessment.( passed thankfully)
I now have a definitive answer:
"They" who ever they are have decided to keep three last digits, not four.
It is no longer HIN- hull identification number it is a CIN craft identification number.
The year ( third from last number ) has started again at zero so is currently 1 as was 2001.

Example: UK-ZZZAAA123A112
Uk country of build zzz builders unique code, then five number and or letters which is up to the builder, then a letter which is month of build A being January then one digit which is year of build, then two more digits which is model year.
The certificate if a CAT B has to be re applied for every five years.

Simple logical !!!
