Ballistic 6.5m RIB (L)

Fast, stable sea-going RIB for adventures on the ocean

Imagine the sense of freedom as you let rip in this fast yet safe and stable Ballistic 6.5m RIB.  Designed and built as a RIB for adventures, it packs an exciting performance that will leave you and your crew grinning from ear to ear.

Packed with all the equipment you need, the stylish 6.5m makes it a best-selling, luxury family RIB that will take big voyages in her stride.  Her size, looks and capacity mean she can work as a yacht race team RIB for crew transfers too.

There’s plenty of room for family, friends and crew, plus ample stowage for gear, picnics and toys. Her additional length creates a spacious deck, with a large sun pad area and pop-up picnic table for on board relaxing.

With exceptional handling and seaworthy design, her high performance deep V-shaped hull is made for speed and will take unfavourable sea conditions in her stride.  Fitted with generous tubes, which are ergonomically designed to deflect spray making for a comfortable, dry ride whether blasting across the bay or towing the kids on a wakeboard.

Fitted with 150 litre fuel tank means long range adventures are highly achievable before any need to interrupt the fun.

Ask a Question

I wanted to say that I very much appreciate your help and advice at all stages of the purchasing our Ballistic 6.5m RIB. From 1st visit to JBT to your instructions on the Hamble.  Timing was perfect for our Summer holiday in Yarmouth; the boat has been admired by all. I can confidently say we have put some hours on the engine. Really cannot fault the boat in any way; I am sure we haven’t properly tested it in adverse weather but have become increasingly confident in the “Solent chop”. Sarah is planning to do a RYA power boat course in the near future.

Thanks again,

Andrew Coombes

PS Happened to visit Seaview and noticed a lot of Ballistics on the swinging moorings; it looks like you are establishing quite a reputation there!
