RIBCRAFT Delivers Harbormaster Boat to the Town of Kingston

RIBCRAFT Delivers Harbormaster Boat to the Town of Kingston. As the leading manufacturer of professional grade rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) for safety professionals, law enforcement, and military agencies around the world, RIBCRAFT provides the ultimate response boat.

Marblehead, MA, May 2020 – Located in Plymouth County on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, the Kingston Harbormaster recently took delivery of a new RIBCRAFT 5.85. The Department is responsible for search and rescue operations, routine patrols, and mooring management on the Jones River and Kingston Bay. Adding to their fleet of boats, the 19’ RIB greatly expands the Harbormasters response capabilities while providing a safe and reliable vessel for their officers during harbor patrols.

RIBCRAFT worked with the department to build a boat that meets their diverse operational requirements. To meet their needs, the boat features a forward positioned center console with windscreen, an aluminum T-top and antenna arch with integrated folding dive ladder. At 19’, this RIB offers ample deck space for divers and personnel while providing a comfortable platform for long patrols. Powered by a 115HP Evinrude E-TEC outboard, this 5.85 will reach speeds in excess of 40mph.

Features of the RIBCRAFT 5.85 include:
• Forward positioned center console with windscreen
• Operator’s leaning post
• T-top with mounted LED flood lighting and blue strobe light
• Antenna arch with integrated dive ladder
• Keel guard
• Dark grey 1670dtx Hypalon tube with three pairs of boarding wear patches and heavy duty rubstrake
• Electronics package complete with Garmin GPS and VHF

Originally designed as a surf rescue craft, the RIBCRAFT 5.85 is small enough to maneuver in shallow waters and can be easily launched and operated, yet large enough to carry ample crew and gear and handle large seas. This 19’ model is a favorite among departments for its versatility, durability, safety, and performance.

Extremely durable, stable, and reliable, RIBCRAFT RIBs with their heavy duty inflatable tube and deep V hull are an excellent platform for law enforcement, search and rescue, and marine interdiction.

RIBCRAFT designs and builds safe, durable, performance oriented rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) that fulfill the most demanding military, professional and recreational applications. A leading manufacturer of professional grade RIBs and inflatables for safety professionals, military agencies, yacht clubs, and recreational boaters throughout the world, RIBCRAFT offers vessels starting at 15’, capable of fulfilling most any mission. www.ribcraftusa.com
