October 22, 2009, Marblehead, MA - RIBCRAFT, a leading builder of professional grade rigid inflatable boats (RIB) for sailing programs and yacht clubs, announced today the addition of a new model, the RIBCRAFT 4.8 Coach to its 2010 model line.
The RIBCRAFT 4.8 Coach, at 15’7”, is the only boat on the market designed and built specifically for sailing coaches. The ultimate coach and safety boat, the 4.8 Coach features a forward position console for improved visibility, open deck for marks, sailors, and gear, and RIBCRAFT’s signature deep V hull for unmatched performance. The smooth ride combined with an open clutter free deck makes it ideal for long days on the water and a logical replacement to the traditional hardsided coach boats of the past. Powered with a choice of engines, the 4.8 Coach also offers excellent fuel efficiency.
“As the leading producer of race committee and coach boats for yacht clubs and sailing programs we worked closely with our existing customers to develop a boat specifically for coaches that would be safe, simple, durable, and most important functional.,” said Matthew Velluto, Director of Marketing and Business Development. “This is the perfect addition to any club with a junior sailing program or for families with active regatta schedules in need of a versatile spectator and coach boat.”
RIBCRAFT continues its long standing commitment to the sport and greater sailing community with the addition of the RIBCRAFT 4.8 Coach.
