On the road for the RibQuest V9

RibQuest will introduce their new 9 metre version of the Velocity class (V9) at Seawork 2020 and Speed@Seawork. The company will showcase the V9 as a fast and exhilarating RibRide boat.

This design has all the strength, speed and performance of RibQuest’s 12m Velocity hull form but also offers practical road transportability.

RibQuest says, “There will be a cabin variant of both designs allowing the prospect of all-weather / longer range vessels or if required, a private client cabin.”

The company is proud of their flagship vessel, the 12m ‘Velocity’ class which, powered by 3 x 300hp Yamaha engines, has already broken records,  most notably the Round Anglesey record by a breath-taking 20 minutes; that required a full circumnavigation of the island in 1hr 02mins and 16 seconds and Velocity comfortably broke the previous time of 1 hour 21 minutes and 09 seconds.

RibQuest go on to state, “There are many RIBs on the market today and many are fast, many are also good in a seaway and some even manage to look good.  We believe that the RibQuest stable of vessels more than fulfils all three requirements. RibQuest prides itself on delivering revolutionary hull design, harnessing and refining real power and blending it with ground-breaking technology to produce a world leading product; as an example the INEOS Velocity class comes fitted with an 11KW side thruster system to assist close quarter handling and well as full 4G and Wi-Fi connectivity to keep the data flowing both ways.  In practice this capability enables the shore team at INEOS TEAM UK to maintain real time data flows to and from Britannia.”

INEOS TEAM UK was formed in 2018 to bring the America’s Cup home to Britain.
