- Hull Material:
- Engine/Fuel Type:
The Ribcraft 5.3 design is based on the all-conquering Ribcraft 4.8 hull characteristics and design concept. The design criteria were to produce a larger version of the 4.8, she had to be very seaworthy, light, strong, and have a soft riding hull, all the characteristics that enabled three Ribcraft 4.8?s to complete a circumnavigation of Britain in just ten day?s. The hull is designed to give greater lift at low speed?s and plane faster. The Ribcraft 5.3 is the first Ribcraft hull to be totally designed using the latest computer aided design; the hull?s plug was cut directly from the computer model utilizing computer controlled machining. The hull characteristics and rugged construction are ideally suited for anything from a family leisure boat used for water-skiing to a serious rough water rescue craft.
