A Recreational Craft Directive was issued by the ECC in June 1994 covering the design and construction of Ribs as identified in the Recreational Boat Category below and includes Sports & Leisure Cruising Boats, Cabin Boats, Racing Boats, Open Cruising Boats and Inflatable Tenders.


These directives though mandated only for Europe are now complied with by ASIS and other reputable R.I.B manufacturers.

Diving boats provide both the divers and the Cox enjoyment together with the comfort of sitting on the inflatable tubes of smaller models thus leaving plenty of deck space for kit and “treasure trove”. A single helm console, jockey seat and bottle rack are the norm with the tubes set close to the waterline and in some cases the hull free floods to provide maximum stability while at rest.


Sports & Cruising models come complete with Moulded consoles and upholstered seating, storage lockers and the added option if required, a bathing ladder and shower facility.  Having a range of up to 120 miles and seating for 4 to 6 people, with additional options such as a cabin if required and a serious electronics package.

Racing Ribs come with High-performance deep-V and more recently stepped hulled craft and are capable of more than 100 mph, generally the standard models will produce speeds of between 50–70 mph. These craft are specially designed and manufactured from Kevlar material, which delivers a strong and lightweight R.I.B, usually having only two seats.
