JBT Marine Ltd takes Ballistic RIBs to RIBEX 2008
This will be JBT Marine’s 5th year at RIBEX and their on-water-line up this year will be the 5.5m, 6.5m and 7.8m Ballistic RIBs all with Evinrude ETEC engines on the back. RIBEX is the only boat show solely dedicated to the exhibition of RIBs and that is why JBT Marine will be taking their Ballistic range of RIBs to the show.
RIBEX will be based again this year at the Yacht Haven in Cowes, Isle of Wight. Cowes is recognized as playing host to some of the most famous international powerboating and yachting events in the world. There will be over 100 RIBs exhibiting at the show with the potential to sea trial literally dozens of RIBs back to back some of which could include Cobra, Ribcraft, Ribeye and Scorpion. A number of engine manufacturers will also be present at the show this includes Evinrude, showing their Evinrude ETEC range of engines, Yahama and Suzuki.
JBT Marine sold six RIBs during the RIBEX show in 2007 and are hoping to beat that this year!
