The RIBCRAFT 4.8 employs RIBCRAFT’s
trademark deep V hull to offer superior handling and performance
for a craft this size. Incorporating the qualities of exceptional
safety, design, and reliability, the 4.8 planes with ease,
corners without skidding and provides a smooth stable ride.
The high bow sheer combined with aggressive hull design provides
great sea keeping capabilities in rough and confused seas.
Used around the world by government agencies and private
industry, the 4.8 serves as an excellent multi purpose support
and response craft. Easily launched by trailer or hoist for
land based or shipboard deployment, the 4.8 features a solid
fiberglass hull with a full width composite stringer system
that provides for increased hull strength without increasing
the boat’s overall weight.
Using only the best materials, the RIBCRAFT 4.8’s heavy
duty tubes are among the best, most reliable in the industry.
With redundancy and reliability an essential component of
the RIBCRAFT design, the 4.8 is designed to perform and plane
without the tube.
