Yes they have a decent freeboard, I used to dive off my mates humber offshore 10m and that was similar especially up forward but I managed fine.
Still, yarking yourself back aboard after a tech dive onto any RIB is a terrible idea from a fizzyology point of view.
Plan would be some sort of hinged spine ladder over the side to make life easy.
