The fastest passenger RIB in the World is coming to north Wales during Year of the Sea.
Tourism Minister, Lord Elis-Thomas will today visit RibRide Adventure Tours, Anglesey to hear of the company’s innovative new development for the Year of the Sea 2018, which has been supported through Visit Wales funding.
The team at RibRide have set themselves a speed challenge to celebrate the ‘Year of the Sea’. A RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) has been designed and specified for speed at sea. The RIB is named ‘Velocity’.
“Adding to our fleet of RIB’s was an idea that sparked with the team. We could design a RIB which was fast, and I mean super-fast, to become the fastest passenger RIB in the world. We could design and build it in the UK and run it here in Wales,” says Skipper Phil Scott, owner of RibRide Adventure Tours.
The RIB was designed at the end of 2017 and has already gone into production in the UK and it will be carrying its first passengers in July.
“Wales has the fastest Zip line in the world at Zip World, Bethesda called ‘Velocity’. Our friends at Zip World were enthusiastic about us using the same name for the fastest RIB in the world. Through this cooperation we are helping to build North Wales as a highly attractive proposition for the travel savvy adventure tourist.” says Skipper Phil.
