Stormforce 6.1 Open

Stormforce 6.1 Open

The Stormforce range continues to grow and we thank you for taking the time to review.
Having studied range details below, should you have any questions whatsoever please do not hesitate to get in touch.

The 6.1 has undergone many hours of testing in extreme conditions to develop the perfect RIB hull. Although it may be the smallest model in our range, the RIB is more than capable of tackling the biggest of seas with ease and determination. The Stormforce 6.1 is a well proven preformer giving a stable dry run even in the roughest of conditions.

'the most sure footed RIB of this size that I can ever remember helming' Hugo Montgomery Swan, RIB International Magazine


The Stormforce 6.1 is a deep V hull form, which is one of the reasons that this RIB has such fantastic abilities in rough offshore conditions. The deep V hull is combined with sprayrails to produce additional lift and improve the hydrodynamics of the hull. The tube is designed to sit firmly in contact with the water surface while at rest; this ensures that the RIB has maximum stability.

The Redbay 6.1 has been described as “one of the most sure-footed craft of it’s size I can remembering handling” (Hugo Montgomery Swan from RIB International.)


The 6.1 can be powered by either single or twin outboards, or a single diesel sterndrive. The RIB can be fitted with either in-line console or a side by side console. Additional PODs can be added if necessary; the RIB is rated to carry up to 8 persons. The versatility and capabilities of this RIB make it suited for a wide range of applications for both commercial and leisure use, including:

  • Leisure/family use
  • Offshore cruising
  • Diving
  • Rescue
  • Patrol
