Voting Ribcraft competitor

Hey guys. I'm newbie from Indonesia.

In my country, ribcraft is the most famous rigid inflatable boat.

I'm wondering can you guys mention one of ribcraft biggest competitor.

Thanks

Hmm, Humber perhaps - an established brand. Rugged, "proper" RIB. Suitable for both commercial and leisure applications and can be heavily customised.

Without doubt Osprey. The best mid sized handling hull of all UK manufacturers.

Not saying Osprey and Delta aren't good RIBs but they are a different market from Ribcraft

Tim's right Humber is in the same market, as is XS and Ribtec.

I don't understand where you're going with "market"?

And also indonesia love good value. So I'm wondering which one the best.

I would like to import that to beat ribcraft in South East Asia.

I wouldn't have had Ribcraft down as supplying much military. If you want military then Delta and Halmatic are what you want

Not forgetting Zodiac/Avon Milpro - probably the biggest of them all. Can't fault their world-wide dealer network and after sales service.

Yes of course I did forget, but their presence isn't quite as large as one could expect in this country is it. The Hurricane MACHII is

You might be missing the point given the cost of Avon/Delta/Halmatics vs Ribcraft.

thanks for the reply.

1. I think someone in here selling avon/zodiac and ribcraft already. so Im looking for a competitor for them.

2. I prefer cheap boat, large factory.

3. I check solent and xs, its hard to help them in Indonesian market. because they are put the price on the website.

sincerely
