Having never previously owned a boat, I purchased a Ballistic 6.5m RIB from JBT Marine. At the time I found their advice very useful and totally unbiased. I have since discovered that I have definitely made the right decision and own one of the best RIBs of its size on the market today.
The aftersales service offered by JBT Marine has also been exemplary and they have resolved any minor teething problems without delay and without me needing to get involved. This has resulted in me having uninterrupted use of the RIB – something me, my family and friends still thoroughly enjoy!
Undoubtedly one of the best toys I have ever bought!
We just wanted to let you know that we are absolutely delighted with the new bench seat on our Ballistic RIB. In fact, we are delighted with the Ballistic as a whole. As well as everything that JBT Marine have done to accommodate us, making the whole buying experience a good one.
We have also just a had a fantastic day out on the water with Angus of Seasmart, who not only did a terrific job in putting us through the Powerboat Level 2 course, but also very ably demonstrated what the 6.5m is fully capable of, re-affirming our decision to buy a Ballistic. A great after-sales tool!
Once again, many thanks for everything that you have done to help us.
With very best regards,
I bought my boat through JBT Marine, but before buying a Ballistic 6.5m RIB they arranged a sea trial which I found invaluable, since it’s the only true test of a boat.
Having been to the boat show and done a lot of research I chose the Ballistic 6.5m. The package suited exactly what I was looking for; the build quality is top class with a huge amount of versatile stowage space. The boat rides well in all seas and with the chosen engine really gets up and goes. The electronics package is very comprehensive.
The entire experience dealing with JBT Marine has been a pleasure. They have been helpful, knowledgeable and above all, extremely efficient.
Earlier this year I acquired a Ballistic 6.5m RIB from JBT Marine. I had sold my last boat, a Ribeye 7.5 the previous year and was looking for a replacement. I needed a boat that would be quick, fun, safe, suitable for watersports and with a quality build. The team at Ballistic RIBS offered no nonsense advice in a forthright fashion! I soon understood why!
The product quality and standard specification excels in all regards and, in my opinion, puts to shame similar boats that have a far higher price tag. From safe family cruising to wave jumping, this boat handles in an exemplary fashion. The few minor teething problems understandably associated with a brand new “out of the wrapper” boat were dealt with in a timely and efficient manner. All in all, this is a 5 star product delivered by a 5 star team. I have recommended the Ballistic RIB to several friends and will continue to do so. Many thanks to JBT for steering me in the right direction and for the superb after-sales service.
