A Beautiful Sight!
We’ve long said, that the United State’s RIB market is about 10 years behind the European boating market and though I still believe that to be the case, I saw a beautiful site this weekend. While out on a RIBCRAFT 5.85 Sunday morning, within a few short moments I crossed paths with four other RIBs enjoying one of the first real days of summer in the North East. For a RIB enthusiast such as me, it was truly invigorating.
Still excited, I decided to count the number of RIBs I saw on my way back in. In our harbor alone, I counted over 25! (I defined a RIB as any rigid inflatable over 13’ with a center console). Though there is still a long way for RIBs to go in the US until we catch up with the UK, it’s nice to see that more and more boaters and safety professionals are seeing the light!
