10.5 metre RIB

Custom recreational rigid inflatable

Custom designed and built for an experienced boat owner, this privately owned rigid inflatable boat (RIB) utilises an offshore-capable Southerly Designs hullform based on that used by Dongara Marine for its sea search and rescue vessels.

Reflecting its use for a range of leisure / recreational activities, the boat features forward and aft lounging spaces; a centre console for helm and navigation; and large aft swim platform accessed through centreline doors and fitted with a swim shower and retractable dive ladder.

Twin suspension seats are fitted at the console, with the skipper and navigator sheltered by a fixed, composite bimini and a full height wraparound windscreen including sliding side screens.

The console provides a significant amount of storage volume, with additional spaced within the fixed seating for ice boxes.

The 10.5 metre long, 3.4 metre wide aluminium hull is fitted with a Cummins QSB6.7 diesel driving a HamiltonJet HTX30 waterjet via a ZF 286 gearbox. Maximum speed is expected to exceed 35 knots.

West RIBs will custom manufacture and supply the 550mm diameter D-shaped foam filled collar.

“Buyers of recreational RIBs have many options available to them, so it is very pleasing that experienced boat owners are recognising that we provide an attractive alternative to existing international and local suppliers.”

Rohan Warr – Managing Director - Dongara Marine
