Scorpion RIBs: Everything you need to know

Scorpion RIBs is one of the most revered powerboating names in the world.

The Silurian 1080 is also available with inboard engines.

With a 25-year heritage defined by record-breaking feats of offshore endurance, Scorpion owners know they can push hard and fast in the fiercest conditions.

The brand’s hard-won reputation for rapid, soft-riding, rough-water ability is also usefully reinforced by its in-house approach to boat building.

Able to exercise precise control over the design, assembly and customisation of every boat that emerges from its Lymington HQ, the high-profile patronage of A-list yachtsmen like Sir Ben Ainslie only serves to rubber-stamp Scorpion’s iconic status.

The Scorpion RIBs range

Scorpion’s three-core product lines are delineated according to their beam.

With a narrow 2.75-metre beam on hull lengths from 7.8m to 9.8m, the multi-purpose Serket is all about fast open boating.

The famous Sting line, with its 3.1m beam, is available as an Open inboard or outboard-powered model from 8m to 10m or as a 10m Cabin RIB which (in twin-diesel form) remains one of the world’s very best.

And with its 3.25m beam and slippery stepped hull, the ultra-stable Silurian 1080 is a superb solution for those in need of a superyacht tender or chase boat that majors on space and pace.

Our pick

The Silurian 1080 is the ultimate in luxury performance rigid inflatables.

Scorpion’s largest boat, the Silurian 1080, is the result of a decade of product development.

Marrying experience derived from the Serket line with design input from Lorne Campbell, its twin-stepped hull is so efficient that a fully loaded Silurian with twin Verado 300s can hit 60 knots.

Described by the RCD test team as the most stable RIB they had ever tested, it combines its offshore pace with the stylistic calibre desired by discerning owners.

Little wonder that it is Scorpion’s best-selling model and the America’s Cup boat of choice for Team INEOS UK.

LOA: 34ft 4in (10.5m)
Beam: 10ft 7in (3.25m)
Engine: Inboards and outboards up to 800hp

Ribeye RIBs: Everything you need to know

Recently awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, Dartmouth-based Ribeye has grown from a small family-run business into a reputable manufacturer of bespoke family RIBs and superyacht tenders from 5-12m.

Custom-built and tailored to each individual customer, Ribeye’s impressive fleet are purpose built to perform optimally in British waters.

The team are passionate about providing excellence on select builds and flying the flag for UK manufacturing.

Ribeye is not only renowned for its boats; it is 100% client focused with its aftercare widely regarded as the gold standard within the industry.

The PRIME NINE41 is our pick of the range.

Its customer-led approach to everything it does is highlighted by Ribeye’s annual Experience Event at their Dartmouth HQ in September.

The event is a step away from the traditional boat show approach as it offers a tailored experience for each attendee in order to gain a deeper understanding of the brand, the build process, and the true performance of the boats in the open seas.

The Ribeye range

The iconic A Series reflects decades of design refinement and runs from 5-8m.

Crafted for adventure, they are designed to be safe, versatile, and beautiful family fun boats with a focus on customisation and quality.

Smaller models in the range are well suited to trailer boating.

The A Series’ legendary deep-vee hull architecture and innovative features have been at the heart of magical days on the water for more than 20 years.

The PRIME Series runs from 6-12m and encompasses the best of what Ribeye has to offer.

Built to be pushed to extremes, the PRIME range has been hailed as the ultimate family day boat with safe, smooth riding performance coupled with opulent touches.

Our pick

After his sea trial, Gordon Ramsay described the PRIME NINE41 as “the Rolls-Royce of the sea”.

Designed, manufactured, and tested in Great Britain, the PRIME NINE41 is the pick of the bunch in our opinion.

At just over 30ft in length the proportions of the deck work exceptionally well with a sheltered dinette aft and a U-shaped convertible seating area in the bow.

LOA: 30ft 9in (9.4m)
