Stockholm RIB Center Ltd launches a new RHIB developed in close collaboration with HSBO Pro, High-Speed Boat Operation Professionals. The C-RIB 27 Stealth is designed for Navy, Police, Sea Rescue, Coastguards and other agencies today forced to comply with the EU directive on Human Impact and Vibration Exposure. The EU directive forces the employer to reduce crew exposure to a minimum by providing the best available means. “Duty of care” is no longer negotiable. The C-RIB 27 Stealth is built to meet and exceed the new EU requirements for professional operators.
Design “Fit for purpose”
Built to workboat standards the 8.5m C-RIB Stealth is an all-weather, multi-task platform built for Patrol, Interception and Rescue missions. Most boats of this size range used professionally, have clear limitations particularly in regards to crew protection and today’s technical requirements. Crews work better if protected from exposure to weather and impact. Protection frees up mental capacity when emergency reactions are needed. Expensive navigation and electronic equipment will function better and last longer if not exposed which can also be offset against the extended life of the boat. By optimizing the working footprint with the integrated cabin many problems are efficiently solved. The C-RIB 27 Stealth is based on Stockholm RIB Center’s operationally V Offshore hull and features a number of new design solutions.
The aerodynamic half cabin with level flush deck eliminates any trip hazards and allows any deck water to drain quickly. A heavy-duty drop down canvas cover encloses the rear of the cabin if needed. A conventional marine door exists as an option. The cabin has an internal height of 2 metres and an internal width of 1.7m giving a working space not previously seen on RIBs of this size.
Access to the bow is either via the central walkthrough or on either side of the cabin via large solid GRP platforms running outside the entire length of the cabin, which greatly reduces possible slip hazards during embarkment and disembarkment.
The main cabin has 4 Ullman Patrol Jockey Seats, the only scientifically proven “Shock Mitigation” seating to reduce impacts and slamming (by up to 76%).
A smaller lower cabin offers seating for a further 4 persons. Alternatively this area can be turned into a “holding” cell for detained persons. There is also ample storage throughout and space for appliances such as a toilet and fridge.
The cabin hull interface also aids to minimise “tube roll” giving immense strength when pacing & coming alongside other crafts.
Side windscreens can open and are tinted. Clear front windscreens lean aft stopping the possibility of “trapping” large amounts of water (up to several hundreds of kilos) if “stuffing” into a wave. The craft can be fitted with a defroster and air conditioning system dependent on operational requirements.
The full width engine room allows for ample dry storage either side and a large surface area for strapping down equipment. The deck and cabin is built of a light yet strong sandwich construction giving a low centre of gravity and excellent handling properties.
As an option the cabin can be reinforced to give ballistic protection up to level 3+.
The Navigation equipment has been ergonomically optimized. Several electronic devices have been blacked out to reduce glare at night.
Communication equipment can include C-RIB’s custom-built intercom system that successfully integrates four separate communication systems; VHF, Rakel, S-70 and GSM, connecting wirelessly to four weather-resistant headsets. This allows the crew to move around and beyond the confines of the boat without any restrictions. These headsets are kept and re-charged on-board on a purpose-built rack saving valuable time during a quick response and thereby eliminating human error.
The boat is powered by the latest Hyundai 250hp Diesel engine, which has been chosen for its low weight (334kg), reliability, and excellent power-to-weight ratio. The boat falls within the trailering restriction of 3000kg, giving the possibility of a truly mobile unit ready to be dispensed anywhere on a purpose built trailer.
Sea trials have seen the 2-ton boat maintain 30 knots in 2 metre waves without the slamming and vibrations normally associated will conventional crafts. Other engine options are available including jet drives and outboard engines.
