Founded in the 1980s, Ribcraft is a well-regarded British boatbuilder with an international fan base among first responders, commercial operators and, in recent years, yachtsmen. Ribcraft’s well-finished RIBs have earned the loyalty of boaters who either have to, or simply want to, be on the water — no matter the conditions.
The new Express 32 is a natural fit as a day boat or tender for yachtsmen who want to head out whenever the mood strikes.
WHOM IT’S FOR: for adventurers who appreciate safety. It’s provided via the seven-chamber inflatable hypalon collar and protected pilothouse with drop-down aft curtain. Twin helm chairs, a cabin with twin berths and a head give the Express 32 comfortable spots to retreat from the elements.
Options include a galley, extra seating, joystick maneuvering, engines to 600 hp total (our test boat had twin 300 hp Mercury four-strokes) and a kayak/paddle-board rack.
PICTURE THIS: As the clouds are still clearing, enjoy the ride inside the warmth of the pilothouse. The deep-V hull can handle whatever the seas have in store for the day.
