06 Jun Stormforce 9.5 Dive RIB
Last week Redbay Boats launched a new 9.5m Dive RIB for Ballycastle based Aquaholics Dive Club. This RIB has the same hard nose as our 11m model and is fitted with a stand-up stern mounted console with a leaning post for the crew.
Power comes from a single Yamaha 315hp diesel sterndrive, giving a top speed of 35 knots. Lowrance supplied the navigation equipment.
This RIB is one of the first to be fitted with a stern mounted dive lift enabling divers to be lowered and raised from the water more easily.
A commercial licence has been obtained from both the MCA in the UK, and the Department of Marine in Ireland.
