Ribeye’s Ever Popular Aluminium Hulled RIBs – the T Series

Ribeye’s unique ultra lightweight range of 15 RIB tenders for up to nine persons, finished using a toughened white epoxy, features powder-coated, all-aluminium hulls from 2.4 to 4.8m overall length and from just 29Kg. As well as their ultra lightweight, their build makes them incredibly strong and they have been purpose built for use with davits, passerelles and cranes on a larger vessel. All are designed for use with Yamaha four-stroke outboards.

There are three types of Ribeye Tender within the range:

TL (Light) 240, 260, 280, 310 - aluminium hull

TS (Standard) 280, 310, 350, 370, 400, 430, 480 - aluminium hull and deck

TA (All-Aluminium) 365, 400, 430, 480 - heavy-duty aluminium hull and deck

Like all Ribeye craft their build quality is excellent, with well-constructed two-tone, multi-chamber Hypertex buoyancy tubes and heavy-duty rubbing-strakes for alongside berthing. These ultra lightweight Ribeye Tenders are ideally suited for beaching roles, typical for long-term tender use. Such smaller boats are much more likely to be dragged onto beaches or slipways where gravel, shingle and hard surfaces can be less than friendly to GRP hulls, which can be prone to deep scratching and the wear and tear of frequent abrasion. Aluminium hulls will take the punishment year after year. The smaller models travel easily on roof rack, swim platform or roof rack; however all models can be davit-hung or towed astern.

Ribeye aluminium tenders are a real alternative for those who may consider an inflatable for getting to and from a larger boat but would prefer a hard hull, yet without any weight penalty. Tiller steering is standard on all models but an attractive range of consoles, including the new euro and mini jockey console, can be fitted for use with higher hp for remote use. Tender prices start from £1,260 ex. VAT.
