Vripack has teamed up with Ribbon Yachts to produce the new Ribbon 45 SC — a sleek and sexy RIB with plenty of power. Inspired by aeronautics, the Ribbon 45 SC’s helm station sits amidships, with three Recaro sport bucket seats, providing comfort and stability when the 45 SC prepares to enter orbit. A large windshield provides good sight lines from the helm and welcomes natural light into the cabin, which features lockers and a fully equipped head with shower. Built with vacuum injected composite (developed by Vripack and Dutch sailboat builder Contest Yachts) the 45 SC is a solid as a RIB gets. Pushing this sporty beast are dual Rolls-Royce Kamewa water jets powered by twin 600 horsepower Cummins QSC engines, which, the company estimates, will give her a top speed of around 43 knots.
