Does anybody know anything about a RibCat680?

I have just come into the possession of an interesting, aprox 5m, twin hull rigid inflatable- with two Yamaha 40hp 2-stroke outboard motors. It seems to be something of a unique design. Doing an image search, the nearest result is a RibCat680, with no link to source. The previous owner tells me that they were, apparently, designed and produced in South Africa for government use.


Has anybody come across this boat and/or have any further information?

I realise that our rib is not exactly the same and it is a tad smaller, but the design is very similar in principle.

Hysucat in South Africa used to make something similar in various sizes.

We think that we have a Takacat T490 Predator or Explorer. Does anyone know anything about them?
