This is one of the most versatile boats we have been asked to bring to market. It is a custom built RIB designed primarily for long range two-handed expeditions, but which is easily converted to be either a cargo carrier for commercial offshore operations, or a personnel carrier for 6, as a chase boat transporting officials or photographers.

With her over-engineered, wave-piercing bow tubes the boat was built to the owner’s very detailed and top quality specifications by the Ribcraft factory. She was commissioned in August 2012 for her maiden voyage from Falmouth to Norway and back, which she achieved easily in 2013. She comes complete with a trailer and full cover.
The twin 150hp Suzuki engine installation was selected to provide both optimal power and redundancy, so the RIB can travel alone far offshore and far from base without the security of an accompanying boat. The engines have a full service history by the Suzuki dealer. Two integral below-deck stainless steel tanks hold 240 litres, giving her a 120+ mile range with a good margin of safety. In addition 12 x 20 litre military-spec, meshfilled jerry cans stored in an aluminium trunk bolted to her foredeck doubles her fuel capacity for a daily run range of 240+ miles. Fuel transfer to the main tanks at sea has proved to be quick and simple. Magellan Zulu also has a water ballast compartment in the bow, which is quickly filled and emptied by a transom-mounted scoop operated from the wheel house. This has proved to be highly efficient at providing a softer ride for the crew when the RIB is driving into short, steep head seas at speed. The wheel house provides all-weather protection for the crew. However, the canvas side screens can easily be removed when required. Secure seating is provided by her shock-absorbing Ullman jockey seats with belts. Because the wheelhouse is placed well aft it provides a soft ride for the crew. As a result passengers or cargo can be transported in the forward, driest part of the craft where visibility for passengers is also at its best. This RIB is not a run-around toy. It should be of interest to serious adventurers or commercial operators.
Manufacturer Provided Description
Relied upon by military and commercial users for its high level of stability, the 7.8 is also ideal for exploring and customizable for virtually any on-water activity. The a long steep sheer towards the bow, an impressive deep V hull, and the highest of construction standards proves herself time and time again to the most discerning boaters. The internal composite grid system designed to ABS engineering standards makes the 7.8 incredibly strong yet surprisingly lightweight. Built for commercial use regardless of the customer, the standard tube set found on the RIBCRAFT 7.8 features seven air chambers with pressure relief valves, overlapped and doubled up seams, and reinforcing all pressure and wear points.
