Owning a superyacht is certainly a fantastic achievement that only a small minority ever manage to accomplish. Yet, superyachts do have their drawbacks. For instance, they aren’t known for their speed or manoeuvrability and aren’t exactly suited for water sports activities. This is where sports RIBs come into their element. RIBs also happen to be one of the most popular ranges that we sell here at Compass Tenders.
A Rigid Inflatable Boat or RIB for short is a lightweight, high-performance vessel that is renowned for being stable, light, fast, and unsinkable. The unique design of these crafts ensures that they remain buoyant, even if the craft begins taking on water. Because of their reliability, versatility, and durability, RIBs are often used by the military and law enforcement. Private RIBs have also grown rapidly in popularity over the years.
At Compass Tenders, we offer variants in our range of sports boats – a 7.5 and 8m option. Both are fully customisable, so we can build yours exactly the way you want it.
The TT Titan is the name of our 7.5m RIB option. It was originally designed for a 78m Abeking & Rasmussen motor yacht called Titan. Designed in collaboration with Allseas Design Ltd, the TT Titan is a multi-role craft designed for transporting crewmembers, supplies, and as a water sports platform. It offers exceptional comfort and is engineered for garage stowage and launching with beam cranes.
These sports RIBs sport interiors that are individually designed to complement the mothership. They also come with an array of features, including:
Originally designed and built for the Neptune Award-winning 47m Heesen motor yacht, Blind Date, the TT Blind Date is the larger of our two private RIBs. This 8m RIB comes with all the same features as well as a custom stainless steel side-mounted swim ladder and over tube boarding steps with removable lollipop handrail. A freshwater shower is also included.
These sports RIBs also come with an optional 1.6m removable bow section. This section is designed to enable stowage in a confined area. In addition, a reinforced keel to facilitate drag/ ramp stowage into the mothership’s aft lazarette was also featured in the original. Customers who require a three-point lift option are in luck, as this is also a feature that we offer.
Whichever option you choose, we’ll consult with you and discuss all the customisable options that are available to you. A timeframe for completion, schedule of works, and total cost will be determined, and you’ll be presented with a no-obligation quote for your new craft. When it comes to sports RIBs, we’re confident that you’ll agree that we’re the most competitively priced option around.
