Ribcraft 585 in action powered by a Suzuki DF140, 140hp EFI 4-stroke
  Ribcraft, one of Britain’s leading builders of quality rigid inflatables, has chosen Suzuki outboards to power a range of competitively priced packages from their 4.8 to 6.5 metre range. The motors, from 40 to 140hp, are all from the Suzuki 4-stroke electronic fuel injected line-up.

Early orders show that one of the most popular packages is the Ribcraft 5.85
with Suzuki DF140. This rugged 140hp lightweight, compact motor with outstanding acceleration and performance, very low running costs, quiet operation and low emissions is an ideal match for this highly reputed craft which has

proven itself in service with the Coastguard, RAF and Fisheries Protection. Prices including VAT for Suzuki powered packages range from £8,998 for the 4.8 metre/40hp (including trailer) to £18,045 for the 6.5metre/140hp.

The packaging agreement coincides with a major expansion programme by Ribcraft which has included a move into new premises in Yeovil, Somerset. Plans are well in hand for the opening of a large retail centre and showroom displaying and offering a range of boats, motors, trailers, electronics and chandlery.
