The ideal family boat for every occasion, formerly called the Playtime range. These Ribeyes have “fun” written all over them. Ideal for beach hopping, skiing, exploring, fishing, swimming, snorkelling, or just sun bathing. They are a favourite for every occasion. The A Series have a genuine deep ‘V’ load-carrying hull, designed to cut through and cushion the impact of the waves, giving a smooth comfortable ride. The smaller models in the A Series are unique in having a deep V hull as most RIBs of this size have shallow hulls. Like all Ribeyes they handle superbly and are easy to manoeuvre at any speed. The A Series are quick on the plane even when fully loaded. The A Series are practical and safe. They offer a very dry ride and is reassuring and forgiving to drive. It is the ideal boat for the first time RIB owner with limited experience. The integral moulded deck provides a stable platform, with its tough easy to clean, slip-resistant finish. There are three standard models, with seating, console and accessory options available for them all. The A Series are fitted with a splashwell. The higher freeboard helps prevent swamping when the RIB is moored or from a following sea. The splashwell also acts as a bathing platform. As for the engine, with Yamaha the choice is yours. Available Sizes: 5.00m, 5.50m and 6.00m
