Class leading performance and driving pleasure. 

This brand-new, class leading Ballistic 6.8m RIB delivers in both performance and driving experience. An evolution of her predecessor the best-selling Ballistic 6.5m, the 6.8m delivers an improved experience for both helm and crew, more efficient cruising, and the ability to add more horsepower. 

Built for style and adventure but with safety in mind. She is sporty and spacious due to the increased deck space and legroom.

The bow area hosts a Silvertex® upholstery which can be set out either as a sun-pad or picnic area.

The large Orca® Hypalon tubes in their stunning new 2022 colours make for the ultimate dry ride and give good stability when boarding.

Carrying a full crew is safe and comfortable, her spacious design and generous beam give good stability whether at anchor or on the move.

Her seating capacity and layout mean you have an all-round RIB for family fun days on the beach, towing the toys or entertaining friends.

What They Said:

It cannot be by chance that the oldest boat in our fleet is also the one which is most used and which we have subsequently bought two more of since the delivery of our first one ten years ago.

Our 7.8m Ballistics offer a very comfortable and dry ride, fantastic versatility and have stood up to being the workhorses of the Necker Island fleet with unparalleled success. We highly recommend them.Kenton Jones, Operations Manager, Necker Island (Richard Branson's Private Island)
