Ribcraft, manufacturer of professional grade rigid inflatable boats for law enforcement, safety professionals, and military agencies, announced the delivery of a specialized 30-ft Ribcraft 9.0 dive boat to the City of Boston Fire Department. The mission specific RIB was delivered to the Boston Fire Department's Rescue Dive Team for search and rescue operations. Given the large active harbor with considerable commercial and recreational traffic, countless wharves and marinas, and many harbor islands and recreational areas within the city's jurisdiction, the new boat will provide the department with improved response times and enhanced on-water coverage. “This boat is specifically designed to support the Dive Team when responding to on-water rescue situations. Its speed and maneuverability is unparalleled and will greatly enhance our response capability,” Boston Fire Commissioner Roderick Fraser stated. “We were very happy to have it built locally by Ribcraft USA.” Designed and built specifically for the Boston Fire Department, the 30-ft professional grade Ribcraft 9.0 is capable of supporting ten divers plus crew. It features a partially enclosed pilothouse with extended aluminum top, a drop down canvas enclosure for all weather protection, a large open aft deck, integrated dive ladder with platform, and secure storage for over 12 dive tanks. The vessel is intended to support the department's dive operations year round


Ribcraft Provides Boat Operator Training

Ribcraft will provide complimentary small boat operator training to professional customers who order a Ribcraft rescue RIB during the month of April. Rescue boat operations in rough seas, strong winds, and along rocky shorelines are a challenge even to experienced and well trained crews, but when the urgency of a response combines with the skill needed to maneuver a vessel alongside people in the water, recreational boating experience is often insufficient to safely operate a rescue craft
