RIBQUEST Velocity with Scot Seats

At Seawork 2019 RibRide and RIBQUEST were showing their Velocity fast RIB.   The RIB was delivered last year and during that time 6,000 passengers have enjoyed a thrilling trip at high speed on this vessel.  

In addition to passenger rides, on the 28th March this year, the RibRide team attempted and successfully smashed the ‘Round Anglesey Record’. This was achieved in a clockwise direction at low-tide and slack water over a distance of 65 nautical miles with the speed averaging 61 knots. The set-up of the boat was exactly as it is worked commercially for the record, and straight after it broke the record it went back to work.

Scot Seat provided two S2J shock mitigation jockey seats for the crew who are on the boat all day and supplied complete fixed jockey seat cushions with 75mm triple layer of SKYEDEX for the passenger seats, making it a comfortable ride at high speed. The seats were all trimmed in toughtec material which is anti-slip in either wet or dry conditions. They are also UV resistant and hardwearing.  Graham Lawton from RIBQUEST commented, “You wouldn’t know that the seats are 12 months old and have had 6,000 passengers.  They are as good as they day we took delivery, the stitching is intact, and the seats are all still firm and comfortable.”

The fixed seat cushions with SKYDEX cushion inserts can be retro fitted in any shape or size.
