Island 7.5m RIB: Cowes Roads in rough weather

Here is a film of our latest 7.5m RIB taken in the Solent during the recent storm Abigail. The high winds and big seas provided the perfect conditions to put our new hull design to the test. We had the Suzuki ambassador Adam Brennan on board with us for a sea trial and are pleased to report that everyone stayed dry and comfortable throughout. Our 7.5m RIB has been certified as Recreational Craft Directive design category B offshore for a crew of up to 10.

Category B is defined in the RCD as “Offshore: Designed for offshore voyages where conditions up to, and including Wind force 8 and significant wave heights up to, and including 4m may be experienced. “ It is the highest design category possible for a RIB and is evidence of the seaworthiness of the vessel.
