Since we first purchased a 6.5m Ballistic RIB it has literally transformed our weekends. They are just so practical and affordable. If you know little of boats then JBT Marine are a great start. With a full induction and RYA course qualification, we were well on our way. To the uninitiated RIBs, and Ballistics in particular, are a superb way to unwind. Whether it’s flat calm on Boxing Day or a midsummer evening, it’s quite exhilarating.
Having got the bug we upgraded to Apollo, our 7.8m Ballistic RIB: more space, more power and still easily towable. We have towed her on a leisurely drive down to the Mediterranean – best family holiday we’ve ever had. Every day was spent out on the boat (best way to get around), mooring in deserted coves, snorkelling in azure blue bays and chilling in the evening watching the fireworks in Cannes harbour.
So thanks to all at JBT, for our inductions, superb back-up, advice and for literally putting smiles on our faces every Friday in anticipation of the weekend ahead!
