The ultimate commercial offshore RIB
The Ballistic 7.8 Commercial is designed as an offshore RIB. It will carry personnel, equipment and loads through the roughest of conditions. This high performance commercial RIB ensures passenger confidence and comfort, so you can speed over long distances.
The 7.8 Commercial takes full advantage of the strength, performance and seakeeping ability of this iconic hull. As part of its development, it was tested in the harsh Southern Ocean off the coast of South Africa.
This robust and powerful offshore RIB has a large, clear deck layout, excellent for a work platform or carrying extra seating. The foam filled hull adds to overall buoyancy. There is the option to fit a diesel engine and an extended operational fuel tank to extend voyage time. For additional protection for your passengers, SHOXS shock mitigation seats and a T-Top canopy will ensure they arrive at their destination in comfort.

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)
