Fly new Red Bay RIB makes world debut

7th May 2008

Red Bay Boats new 11-metre Flybridge Stormforce RIB will be unveiled to the public at the RIBEX show in Cowes this weekend.

The new design, a concept up to now, is the first RIB from the Antrim-based yard to feature a flybridge steering position, and is based on their top-of-the-line Stormforce 11 touring version.


The Red Bay newcomer has four berths and offers all the usual trimmings from what is now an established provider of high-performance seagoing ribs.

The event, the only show dedicated solely to RIBs, takes place at Cowes Yacht Haven from May 9 to May 11, and features a host of other world premiere launches, including Evinrude's new 300HP E-TEC engine and a host of free events and bargain offers.
