30’ RIBCRAFT Custom RIB

Our vessel, The Atlantic Pioneer, was built in 2018 by RIBCRAFT Inc. in Marble Head, Mass. It was built to all United States Coast Guard (USCG) Certifications with safety and comfort in mind. The Atlantic Pioneer was patterned after the same versatile and nearly indestructible RIBs used by Navy Seals, the USCG, the Secret Service and multiple rescue agencies around the world use. Powered by twin four-stroke, 300-hp Yahama engines, we can operate safely in almost any sea condition while being eco-friendly.

We’ve installed 14 custom pod seats that provide comfort while reducing the slamming that takes place when a boat is underway. There is storage under each seat that allows passengers to stow small personal items.  We’ve also added a full head that offers a marine toilet and running water.
