Ness Ribs operate mainly Ribcraft Offshore & Zodiac models, giving true offshore performance combined with a robust fit out. Likewise we operate only modern four stroke fuel efficient engines thus ensuring maximum reliability, excellent performance and sensible fuel economy.

  • Our RIBs are MCA coded to Cat 3 and so able to commercially operate up to 20 miles from a safe haven
  •  Our Skippers and Crew are MCA certified with commercial endorsement and have extensive local knowledge of the areas in which we operate.
  • Available 24 / 7 our RIBs are fully trailerable and able to operate from most Ports, Harbours and Slipways.
