RIBWORLD - Boats in stock

At Humber, we are known for carrying a large amount of stock boats year-round, with a large selection of models in various sizes and colours. Each RIB has interchangeable layout options to best suit your individual requirements. Why should I buy a stock boat? The main attraction of purchasing a stock boat compared to a made to order craft is the much shorter lead time; you’ll be on the water whilst a made to order craft would still be in the build process. With discount promotions running throughout the year, you can get a premium commercial grade-built craft for an affordable price. With an unrivalled 60+ years’ worth of experience and our extensive direct sales knowledge we can offer expert advice on model selection and a bespoke RIB consultancy with impeccable after sales service.
