Even the finest hulls available require propulsion and ancillary systems. Our private wharfage allows direct access to the North Sea. Humber undertakes sea trials and can fine tune the performance and propping of your RIB.
With over 15,000 Humber RIBs we have accumulated extensive knowledge and understand the power requirements and propeller selection for our RIBs relative to load and speed conditions. This ensures maximum performance and optimum fuel efficiency of your RIB. Humber are a main OEM account for Suzuki and Yamaha outboard motors. Contact our sales team for consultancy advice and expert guidance to ensure the right choice of turnkey boat and engine package can be carefully selected to suit your individual requirements. Alternatively if you prefer to have your engine installed locally or maybe even at a later date, we can supply a RIB only package.
Installations are limited to new RIB packages only.
Replacing a RIB collar can greatly extend the life of the craft and increase its re-sale value. Humber has almost 50 years experience in the design and manufacture of top quality inflation collars. We have always produced our inflation collars in house.
All tubes are individually hand built by experienced craftsmen and constructed from world recognised top quality Hypalon. Our design and development programme ensures our collars are in a constant stage of evolution allowing us to fulfil the requirements of a demanding market. This allows us to offer designs ranging from the traditional panel collars to the more fashionable style without vertical seams. However, whatever the design, our assembly methods do not vary. Overlapped seams are re-enforced inside and out by strong flexible extreme conditions.
Also, unlike tubes manufactured from PU or PVC, hypalon fabric does not become porous after a relatively shortly life span. Hypalon allows easy repair by simple gluing without having to engage the services of an expert. For further information on hypalon fabric visit www.pennelindustries.com.
Damage to an inflation collar or just fair wear and tear over a prolonged period may not justify a full collar replacement. We are an approved insurance centre and offer an in-house repair and restoration service to all makes of hypalon RIB’s and inflatables. We have successfully carried out many larger repairs that other service centres have been unable to complete satisfactorily.
