Ballistic 6.5m RIB (C)

Police patrol boat and marine security

As a workboat which can carry up to 11 personnel, the Ballistic 6.5 Commercial lends itself as a police patrol boat for marine security and safety work.

Able to cut through rough seas head on, it provides a dry ride for all personnel on board. This is due to the V-shaped hull and tube design deflecting spray away from the boat. As with all Ballistic RIBS, the extremely strong hull construction, combined with the all fibreglass, wood-free ladder chassis, minimises any flex and eliminating any risk of water ingress.

Adaptable and versatile the Ballistic 6.5m RIBS are used as police patrol boats by the London Metropolitian police force, and forces in Central, West and South Africa.

Ask a Question

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,
Nick Simmonds
