For unrivaled handling in harsh weather conditions and with a 10 person capacity (including helm), you can’t beat Pontoon Provider’s 7.8 m Ribcraft inflatable rib for outstanding safety, performance and dependability.

This he-man workhorse carries an MCA category 3 certificate, able to travel up to 20 miles from any safe haven - day or night, on any categorised water. With a high sheer bow, a 2.7 metre beam and a hefty 4 stroke - 250hp Suzuki outboard engine, this Ribcraft inflatable is purpose-built to tackle the demands of commercial use as well as extended long-distance cruising.

The hull has a cross-linked inner matrix construction making the boat construction incredibly strong. And the fuel tanks are located under-deck, maximising the console space and lowering the centre of gravity, ensuring a comfortable, dry ride. All of our support boat hire packages are turnkey, so this rib package is delivered to your site with either an RYA certified helm or on a bareboat charter basis along with all the required gear. We also offer inhouse powerboat training services too!

Superb for tidal and estuary projects, the Ribcraft inflatable can be used as a stand-by boat, dive support boat, survey boat, safety boat, marine construction support, transport, tow boat or a corporate day out.

420 HD Bombard Typhoon Inflatable Rib

safety boats

This versatile inflatable rib is as agile, as it is dependable. We love this get-about because of it’s two outstanding features: It’s easily transportable and very easy to assemble, making very short work of a swift launch. Excellent on any waterway, and superb in confined spaces, this rib is built to tackle the demands of commercial use making this boat the ideal solution for those projects with challenging accessways or maneuvering restrictions.

As an adaptable allrounder and ready to carry 7 passengers or up to a whopping 750 kilograms total weight capacity, this versatile rib ticks every box. The Typhoon has an aluminum floor, made rigid by 2 aluminum stringers that lock the floor sections together so this vessel offers a very strong, flat, stable inside surface. The Typhoon also has a keel that ensures directional stability as the rib navigates the water.

Pontoon Provider’s 420 HD Bombard Typhoon inflatable rib hire package is available helmed with our RYA certified crew or on a bareboat charter basis complete with all the ancillary gear you require.
