RIBCRAFT Continues to Deliver for First Responders

Marblehead, MA, June 1, 2006 – RIBCRAFT, a leading designer and builder of rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) for military agencies, search and rescue professionals and law enforcement, headquartered in Marblehead, Massachusetts continues to provide first responders with professional grade rigid inflatable rescue craft with recent deliveries to Milford Holland Rescue in New Jersey, Silver Lake Police of Wisconsin, and Kill Devil Hills Ocean Rescue of North Carolina.

In addition to these deliveries, RIBCRAFT will deliver RIBs to fire departments in Hadley and Ipswich, Massachusetts, as well as the City of North Charleston Police in South Carolina.

With lakes, rivers, extended coast lines, and large commercial ports under their jurisdiction, each of these agencies have turned to RIBCRAFT to expand their capabilities for a water based response. Known for durability, stability, safety and exceptional sea keeping capabilities, RIBCRAFT rigid inflatable boats provide these towns with quick response capabilities for marine emergencies that previously they were ill equipped to handle.

“The RIBCRAFT 5.85 continues to be our most popular model for first responders. Out of these six contracts, four of the municipalities have chosen the 5.85. At just over 19’, the 5.85 is easily and quickly deployed providing departments with a versatile apparatus for dive operations, rescue scenarios, and search and patrol duties”, commented Matthew Velluto, RIBCRAFT’s Director of Marketing.

Focusing on the functional, RIBCRAFT works closely with each department to understand their specific needs and the local operating conditions to insure the RIB is optimally configured.

About RIBCRAFT RIBCRAFT has established its position as a designer and builder of technologically advanced RIBS that fulfill the most demanding professional, safety and military applications. With twenty years experience RIBCRAFT has gained an enviable reputation as a leading builder of professional RIBs. With models starting at 15’, RIBCRAFT offers RIBs capable of fulfilling any mission. www.ribcraftusa.com
