RIB Tubes ‘Я’ Us

RIB Tube and Collar manufacture is our core business and we have built tubes for most makes and models of RIB over the years. We retain a large range of templates for different rib boats so obtaining a new set of tubes may be as simple as giving us call and supplying us with the make and model of your boat.


RIB Retubing

Our RIB Retubing service is carried out at our manufacturing facility in Devon. This means we need your boat at our premises to retube it.  A RIB retube will make your boat look like new and prolong its life.  You can deliver your RIB to us or we may even collect it if you are within our local area and have someone available.
We have an on site crane for moving  larger boats with full access for articulated lorries. We’re located just off the A38 between Exeter and Plymouth.
