I'm not too sure about the re-branding market for RIBs in North America! What is clear is that Ribís are about to take off in North America. When? I'm not too sure, but when they do it will be in a big way.
Some established companies are all ready in a good position; those generally who now provide boats to rescue, military, and utility service organisations. Comfort is not the greatest attribute of a RIB, no Gin Palaces here, but the ability to go into the wilderness; look after the crew and because of the high power to weight ratio, give an exhilarating ride in conditions that traditional boats canít cope with, will naturally appeal to the adventurous spirit of the North Americans.
; are all well positioned when take off happens!
