JCraft Rigid Inflatable Boats (Ribs)
Jcraft is based on the south coast in Portsmouth. Having been exclusively in the rib building industry for over ten years their craft are designed and built with expert knowledge and skill by boat enthusiasts.
Every Jcraft rigid inflatable (rib) and accessory product is manufactured with an intense attention to detail. From the mouldings through to the finished product each stage is rigorously quality checked to the highest standard. They are proud to say that all their Plugs, moulds and rigid inflatable boats are constructed entirely in their workshop in the UK and are therefore overseen from start to finish. All materials used are Lloyds approved and of the highest quality within the industry.
Their extensive research and experience has been used to address problems they themselves have experienced in other RIBS which has culminated in their use of an original hull design that ensures a smoother and faster ride. The addition of their uniquely designed consoles use a well thought out approach that solves the commonly found problem of poor siting of steering and controls. Their original seating designs correct common problems such as knee jarring, lack of legroom and back support.

Synonymous with safety, practicality, reliability and superior quality Jcraft offer a range of models from 2.9m - 7.5m and with the freedom to choose the layout, features, hull, deck and tube colours every Jcraft can be tailored and finished to meet specific requirements and needs. Because they offer such a wide choice of optional extras Jcraft are confident that their service and product quality cannot be beaten.
