16/06/2014 - Seawork 2014 Overview
Seawork 2014 has proved a great success for the Humber Ribs team. Not only was the weather perfect, our Ocean Pro 7.5m Patrol boat gained rave reviews at the show.
People who participated in our demonstrations have described the boat as being in a league of its own for performance, especially with its unbelievable handling and incredible acceleration which they felt went unrivaled. The twin Suzuki powered professional craft can be used for a number of purposes and is now up for sale on our website http://ribworld.co.uk/ribs-detail.asp?testid=676
On a separate note, the show proved to be a huge success off the water, providing invaluable networking opportunities with suppliers, customers and stakeholders in general. This gave us the opportunity to strengthen and create a number of relationships which will push the company into an even stronger position for many years to come. More positive news came with agreements of a large number of sales of our craft to numerous reputable organisations.
We couldn't have asked for much more and thoroughly enjoyed the exhibition and would like to thank everyone involved for all being part of such a successful show.

14/05/2014 - Jersey Fire and Rescue Boat
Jersey Fire News Article
Jersey Fire and Rescue proudly displayed the latest joint development between Humber and DPM Trading at the ‘Jersey Boat Show’ where 36000 people went through the gates. There was a huge amount of interest in their new high spec boat amongst spectators.
Jersey Fire and Rescue service has provided the island with an inshore rescue resource since 1960 and unveiled their new design for 2014.
The craft was the result of many months of development and was based on our standard 16i Workboat (A variation that is used by The British Antarctic survey) but with some Fire and Rescue variation to help meet the demands of inshore-rescue word. Our work included using the most robust ‘denier’ fabrics throughout, a heavy duty transom to accommodate the Service’s need for a 50HP engine and equipment carrying A frame amongst the inclusion of many other features including a GPS chart plotter, VHF, AIS and a ‘Tetra’ system that allows the vessel to communicate with other community services such as Police, Ambulance Service and Beach Guard.
A custom design stainless steel ‘fairlead’ made by DPM Trading provides the stem with a strong-point through which the anchor warp and painters can run. An equipment stowage pod (moulded in yellow fibreglass) provides a sturdy but light-weight working platform. The deck locker provides stowage for the anchor, chain and 100m of warp. The equipment pod also provides housing for navigational electronics and dry storage for sensitive equipment and stores.
The vessel will now undergo testing and be inspected to ensure it fully complies with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency’s ‘Rescue Boat Code.
