Discover Ballistic

The British designed Ballistic range of RIBS are renowned for their a high-performance and high quality finish. With a superior load-carrying capacity for leisure and commercial purposes.

Dry ride

Ballistic RIBS are amongst the driest on the market. The dry ride comes from a unique combination of the deep V-shaped hull and reverse scalloped hull chines. The V-hull creates excellent sea-keeping and handling in waves. At the same time, the chines deflect water away as well as increase stability.

The Ballistic’s characteristic large, low Hypalon tubes are positioned to skim just above the water. This adds stability, both at speed and at rest. This makes boarding passengers and guests safe and easy. The tube fendering is also designed to deflect spray ensuring all on board keep dry.

This intricate balance of design creates a range of easy to handle, high performance RIBS that put stability, safety and practical style at the head of the list.

Robust build

For over twenty years, our RIBS have been hand built by our dedicated team of experienced builders and fitters. Innovation, detailed engineering and build quality is the highest priority.

The Ballistic’s high-speed, load-carrying capability comes from our proprietary construction process. The larger boats are built using a unique three-part structure, comprising the GRP moulded hull, deck and internal ladder chassis. These are bonded together with Lloyds-approved high quality resins. This creates a strong hull, streamlined look and reduces the number of areas to bond.

The smaller boats use a two-part deck and hull construction, with built in internal foam for additional hull strength. Importantly, there is no wooden panelling under the deck that can rot. This cutting-edge construction method sets Ballistic RIBS apart from other RIBs and makes it one of the strongest and most durable rigid inflatable boats on the water.

Smart safe space

Plenty of thought has gone into the Ballistic’s layout, seating capacity and storage.

The steering console is positioned to allow maximum room for guests to move freely around the boat. With safety afloat a high priority, the centrally positioned throttle reduces the risk of the unthinkable accident happening. It cannot be knocked by someone brushing past it in the gangway. You still always need to wear your kill-cord though!

Anchor lockers, underseat storage, and underfloor fuel tanks create a clean open interior and provide ample space for gear and boat toys. A removable sun-bed and pop up picnic table are there when it’s time to chill out by the beach.

Supportive seating

Jockey seats ensure a secure and supportive ride at high speeds and stainless steel 316 grab rails are used throughout. Additional bench seating adds capacity for more relaxing journeys.

Attention to detail is everything. For example, in our commercial ribs the seating can be easily removed to make space for equipment, buoys or wheelchairs. Captive deck nuts are flush mounted for a clear, flat floor too.

Guaranteed and ready to go

Each Ballistic RIB is delivered ready to go, complete with life jackets and all the necessary accessories to get afloat without fuss are provided.

All our RIBS come with a comprehensive, no-nonsense five year guarantee, and a one year guarantee for electronics. We also offer excellent customer support and advise to ensure you have the most trouble-free fun with your new RIB.
