F-Rib - Folding Rib - Just Unpack It
Info Block Description: 

The F-Rib folding rib is a totally unique concept
 
The F-Rib idea is one that is so fundamentally simple and easy to use, that  one looks at it and then honestly wonders why nobody thought of such a simple idea years ago.
 
The F-Rib folding rib is a good quality, well built small rib - with a heavy duty and robust rib hull. The F-rib is obviously made of substantial materails throughout
 
The totally unique bit is that the F-Rib hull simply folds into segments - so that the whole rib boat can be carried and even packed into its own bag.
 

Here the boat is being unrolled from its bag - taking approx. 10 seconds
Please come and see for yourself the unique folding rib - the 275 model F-Rib is on display in our Skipton showroom. (Obviously if you live south of the Watford Gap, you will need a passport to visit us here in Yorkshire).  
Pennine Marine is the main northern England UK dealership for the remarkable F-Rib product. One boat on display in our Skipton showroom, and knowledgable staff to help.
 
The photo says it all. Basically the F-Rib folding rib is a rigid hulled inflatable boat (rib) which has a unique hinged system, allowing it to be packed into a small bag.
 
Just look at the photo - and let us be very clear here - we haven't broken it nor misread the instructions.
 
The F-Rib is ideal as a small yacht tender - or as a highly portable family-friendly sports boat - or as a "carry-in-a-bag" fisherman's boat - or a small workboat - or even just a very good small rib
 
We can offer the F-Rib for sale as boat only (a complete rib) and or a complete rib, engine and even trailer package.

PLEASE ALSO SEE THE BANNER PHOTOS ACROSS THE TOP OF THIS PAGE.......
 
In this photo here the back two parts of the F-Rib hull are now fully unrolled. We are about to roll down the bow.
 
This photo of the F-Rib was taken about five seconds after the photo above - i.e. less time than you have taken to read about it.
 
Look carefully at the patented secret of the F-Rib - a very solid rib hull  - however with the slot and groove system neatly hidden within the hull.

Literally all we have done is connect the footpump and inflated the F-Ribs tubes. All we have done with this folding rib since the last photo is to add something free and plentyful -air. The word "SIMPLICITY" is just far too long winded to describe this rib.
 
It this F-Rib is now a fully functioning rib - please just point me in the direction of the waterfront - and not forgetting to add the engine on first.

F-Rib - Folding Rib - Carrying Sizes
Info Block Description: 

The unique part about the F-Rib folding rib concept is that it is a rigid boat which folds down into a carry bag (see photo). The F-Rib is light enough to be carried by one or two persons
 
The "folded up" sizes (the dimensions in its carry bag) and the all-important carrying weights of the F-Rib folding rib models are as follows;
 

  • The F-RIb 275 folded size  is 90 x 90 x 40 cm. 
  • The F-Rib 275 carry weight in it's bag is 36kg

 

  • The F-Rib 330 rib folded size is 105 x 94 x45 cm.
  • The F-Rib 330 carry weight in its bag is 43 kg

 

  • The F-Rib 360 rib folded size is 110 x 94 x 45 cm.
  • The F-Rib 360 carry weight in its bag is 48 kg
  • The F-Rib 360 is the largest boat size we recommend for true "car and caravan" portability

 

  • The F-Rib 375 rib folded size is 110 x 105 x 50 cm.
  • The F-Rib 375 carry weight in its bag is 56 kg

 

  • The F-Rib 460 rib folded size is 150 x 110 x 60 cm.
  • The F-Rib 460 carry weight in its bag is 72 kg

 

  • The F-Rib 460 Sailing model is the same size as the 460 model
  • The F-Rib 460 sailing is however 8kg heavier at 82kg

 
Please note that these "folded in bag" sizes are now slightly different in 2017 compared with what we previously published about the F-Rib. This very minor difference is simply to reflect a couple of very minor changes that have been made to the F-rib model specifications, but also to give a you our customer a "true indication" of the actual "in real life" sizes that can be achieved when you fold down this truely remarkable boat into your car, caravan or yacht locker.

F-Rib - Folding Rib - Easy Portability
Info Block Description: 

The F-Rib folding rib folds down so small that it will easily fit into a car boot, caravan locker, small van or any 4x4
 
This gives the F- Rib folding rib is a unique portabilty.
 
Before now, true rib hulls had to be transported by trailer - which obviously limits their flexibility and especially the portability.

F-Rib - Folding Rib - Good Build Quality
Info Block Description: 

The F-Rib is the truely unique folding rib concept with a solid hull that - believe it or not - just packs down into a carry bag.
 
Having practicality and convience is all very well. But by now you,our very intelligent, perceptive and discerning customer, will be asking yourselves the FAQ - "will this folding rib fall to bits on me? The simple answer to your obvious question is; "No it will not - the F-Rib folding rib is very well made throughout" . If the F-rib folding rib was not of good quality then we here at Pennine Marine would not be considering selling it to you.
 
The F-Rib folding rib features both a high standard of fibreglass finish and excellent gelcoat quality on the hull. This F-rib build quality is evident throughout the F-Rib folding hull and tubes. All the details throughout the F-Rib folding rib are simple, practical and fit for purpose. No frilly bits, no attempts to be particuarly stylish, but just good, practical and solid boat-building. Throughout we think the F-Rib folding rib is very robust and very well finished -and we have to say frankly better built than many other normal rib brands. The F-Rib folding rib tubes are PVC, however once again the F-Rib tubes are an excellent and robust design and one that looks to be very durable. If you do not believe us, come to Skipton to see for yourself.
 
The overall concept of the F-Rib folding rib - and also the final finished product - is one that is well thought out and then also well built throughout.
 
The F-ribs light grey hull and tubes look good, whilst still being a nice and practical boating colour. The orange colour feature on the substantial rubbing strake is a nice finshing touch.
 
These F-Ribs were imported into the UK in 2015. However they have been marketed and sold abroad (on the wrong side of the English Channel) for a few years under the Winboat brand name. Therefore the F-ribs have a good and proven track record of quality and durability.

F-Rib - Folding Rib - On the Beach
Info Block Description: 

The unique F-Rib folding rib is quite simply amazing when you get it out of the bag. Shown here on a beach "somewhere in Europe" -  with a little foothill visible  in the background (not a proper mountain like the Pennines we have dotted around here).
 
You simply unroll the F-Rib folding rib boat until it is flat. One then gets the footpump pump out and inflates it (not forgetting to connect the pump into the valves on the boat first).
 
This F-Rib folding rib is so simple to put together that you need to be illiterate to read the instructions. You can leave your tools in the garage at home - or just forget to bring them with you when you go on holiday.
 
Really all you have to do - and I mean all you have to do - is unfold the f-rib folding rib boat and then add lots of free air.
 
The unique F-Rib folding rib patented groove system does all the rest - locking the F-Rib boat hull firmly and securely in place.
 
This F-Rib folding rib really is so brillently engineered that it does'nt need any engineering expertise at all. Your young child could put this together the F-Rib whilst you watch and supervise.
 
When it comes to doing things on the beach on holiday, quite frankly I have had more trouble with putting up a sun-lounger than I had assembling the F-Rib folding rib. The other advantage is that - as you will be  bringing the F-Rib folding rib to the beach with you - is that you can pick and choose where you are launching from.

The smaller F-Rib folding rib goes very well with the Torqeedo engines, Indeed F-Rib folding ribs have even colour coordinated the F-Rib tubes with the Torqeedo, so that you have a fetching orange stripe and colour coordinated theme.

F-Rib Folding Rib - Out On The Water
Info Block Description: 

The F-Rib out on the water performs so well that it really is quite remarkable. It has a "solid feel" when being driven out on the water of a proper and much bigger rib.
 
I am actually struggling to think of a small rib - from any manufacturer - that actually feels this "solid" underfoot - certainly nothing from any other manufacturer that I have driven in recent years. The F-Rib feels more solid than any other fibreglasss or aluminium hulled recreational rib.
 
Indeed the F-rib has the "tough construction" that would lend itself to occasional workboat use.  The F-Rib really does instill a feeling of confidence.
 
Here we have a boat tester (and I hasten to add - not one of my guys) that is so confident in the F-Rib that he is not even wearing a lifejacket. Foolhardy I know, but the F-Rib feels that safe on the water...............

F-Rib as a Yacht Tender
Info Block Description: 

Anybody who has ever owned a yacht knows that - if the yacht designer has forgotten one thing it is always - where do I store the tender?
 
The F-Rib is great as a small yacht tender - simply because it solves that problem very nicely. The F-Rib sits into almost any locker or lazarette or cubbyhole on a modern yacht. The F-Rib is however (smaller models) light enough to easily lift in and out or a space and still light eniugh to lift into the water or onto a bathing platform. As we have shown about, the f-Fib inflates quickly and aesily. Once in the water, the F-Rib gves a stunning performance, as ne would expect from a true rib hull..
 
As you can see, this yacht owner has actually named his yacht after the principle behind the F-Rib's overall design concept - "PURE ELEGANCE"

F-Rib For Exploring
Info Block Description: 

The obvious use for the F-Rib folding rib is exploring the wild coast around the of the 5,000  miles of shoreline of the UK. Have you seen it all of our UK coastline yet - what do you mean, no ? Well we can only suggest that you get out there with your new F-Rib and get looking.
 
The one great advantage of the F-Rib is its great portablity. This means the F-Rib is ideal for a couple or a family to put into their car, van, 4x4, motorhome or caravan and just go out into the wild and find somewhere remote to unpack it. Then ten minutes later, your F-Rib will be ready for some adventures.
 
Here we show our "southern test dummy" waiting in the boat. Please don't worry about him being lonely, his wife, kids and dog have all run off to have a good time on the beach and hopefully buy him an ice-cream (after all - ask yourself who took the photo?). This is southern England's idea of great scenery, sort of flattish and spolit by industrial pipework. None of those great hills you have hee in Yorkshire - as seen from our Skipton windows.
 
Joking apart, one of the features that our customers who briought the F-Rib have reported back to us here is the the F-Rib  feels so mch more safe and stable than a similar sized fully-inflatable boat, thus giving a lot more confidence to new and novice boat users.
 
The F-rib is also great for carrying fishing gear and dogs, as the hard hull is robust.

F-Rib Folding Rib - Workboat
Info Block Description: 

One of the more unusual uses of the F-Rib is as workboat.
 
The F-Rib's high speed, great rigidity and solid deck/hull make it far more robust than a conventional inflatable boat - factors which are especially important when operating in a tough marine working environment 
 
The F-Rib shown here in southern England - no wonder our test dummy is looking so miserable. I could describe him as being bit under the weather!

So here we go: from us here in Yorkshire, nothing but the absolute latest in high-technology and fashionable marketing - a F-Rib 360 Youtube video......with real people, real F-ribs and even real water - lots and lots of real water.
 

F-RIB 360 YOUTUBE VIDEO
 

https://youtu.be/J5EEGGoADJY
 
One of our earliest customer's Martin, who has owned his F-Rib 360 for a while, has now made a video. As this is Martin from Montrose in Scotland, not the much better known Montrose which is the home of the rather famous film festival, this is an honest and straightforward film, with none of the poncy camera angles that would win an Oscar at the other Montrose. (note to self: check up on why are they still called Oscars - as only one bloke called Oscar has ever won one!). Martin from Montrose has posted a great 24 minute long video on Youtube of him driving his F-Rib 360 in rough lochs off Scotland. Can you all please note that they call it a loch up there north of the wall, not the sea, for reasons that have always been "somewhat unclear" to us who are based here in Yorkshire. Anyhow, a while ago, Martin came south of the border, asked us lots of questions about the F-Rib, then he paid over his hard-earned money and he returned back over the border with a small box: within which we had put his new toy = called a F-rib.  For all you techies out their, the specification on this boat in this video is an F-Rib 360 with a 20 hp engine with remote control steering (cross-bar) and a bow canopy - the canopy stops both spray and midges etc hitting Martin. (note: Martin says the canopy is to keep the camera dry...). Otherwise, as you will see for youself on this F-rib youtube video, it is a standard F-rib unfolded straight out of the box and put out to sea (sorry, translation, I meant to say loch). However in the interests of this being a real honest news film, I do have to confess at this point that this F-Rib 360 does have the soft cushion pack on both (yes = both) of the seats. This was because even a Scotsman thought the cushion pack (yes = pack) was "an excellent investment" - not only for himself, but also for the camera-person. All we can say is that this just proves that all film-makers, even those living in Scotland, therefore all have a well deserved reputation for profligate expenditure. So, with no expense spared in the making of this film and (thankfully) that little confession out of the way...: 
   
 
Martin, who originally brought his F-Rib boat from here, sent us here at Pennine Marine a lovely note at the same time as he posted the F-rib video up on Youtube. Part of his note to us read:
 
"Hi, still loving my 360 been using it for 15 months now including a trip to Loch Etive where we spent 3 full days on the water covering up to 40 miles a day. I now have a new Tohatsu 20 efi on the back, still runnning in but is a perfect match for the 360 with standard prop and trimmed to 2nd hole out, no ventilation and no splash back over transom".
 
Just watch Martin's video on Youtube to see for yourselves how stable and seaworthy the F-Rib actually is. During the entire time this video was beiing shot, not only has Martin stayed in complete control of the F-Rib; he has also kept it in a straight line in rough seas and (best of all)  the cameraman (or - being politically correct - camarawoman) has stayed on the back of the F-rib and filmed the boat overtaking everything in sight = which being Scotland is not very much.  Opps .... sorry Martin - I promised no more scottish jokes !!!!) Therefore the F-rib has proved itself perfectly capable of holding up and acting like a proper rib. 
 
Please note that this is not a telly-tubby on the rear seat of the F-Rib: if you look very carefully at the shadow of the camera-person you will see it is really a person, but wearing a crash helmet with a Go-Pro camera stuck on it. Quite why they are both wearing crash-helmets on an F-rib is a bit of a mystery = especially on such a safe boat such as the F-Rib. We have various theries here. Firstly it could be to stop midges spoiling a great day out on an F-rib when out on the Scottish lochs. Secondly (and more likley) it could be that this F-Rib crew are planning on visiting a Scottish hostelry after being out on the Loch - after all, you know what the famous greeting is that the Scots do to one another.... 
 
The proof of any great invention is not whether it is a good idea: it is always whether the concept works out as well in practice as it does in theory. However we think that just how well the F-Rib concept actually works is graphically shown on this youtube video. This video just goes to prove what a great idea the joint in the F-Rib hull is .
 
A final word of caution however - this video shows that the F-rib is for very serious ribbers, as a land-lubber (or soft southerner) would probably get sea-sick just watching this video !!!!
 
Anyhow, thanks for loaning us your great youtube film Martin. As they (probably) say at the "other" Montrose film festival, "that all about the F-rib folks...."

F-rib 2018 Models - Detailed Specifications
Info Block Description: 

This is a new 2018 specification F-Rib; which we have  literally taken straight out of the box.
 
This photo being a folding f-rib 360 in our yard on a rare sunny day (called the summer season here in Yorkshire).
 
The 2018 specification f-rib has a number of good features on it incorporated new this year and is extremely well made;

  • There are now better air valves, with extra (adjacent) safety valves
  • The outer hull colour is white, with the inner hull colour a light grey
  • The design of the folding hull has been slightly amended, thus making it easier to fold and unfold
  • The transom has been simplified, with a smaller lip
  • The  hull now has a really neat and narrow keel-strip, protecting the V-edge of the hull (the grey line in this photo)

F-Rib 2018 - Contents
Info Block Description: 

The 2018 model F-rib comes in large box, with the boat complete and ready to use (but without the outboard engine and fuel tank - engines can be either sold together as a package, or separately).
 
The F-rib folding rib box set includes

  • F-rib boat hull, fiited complete with the tubes
  • the F-rib boat hull has a fitted keel-strip
  • Bravo footpump (with gauge)
  • Two paddles - clip together type, with rowlocks
  • Carry bag for boat
  • Another small bag for paddles and bits
  • Wooden seats (one or two, depending on model) - these just slide on.
  • For larger boats, the bolts and nuts (for the hull joint) 
  •  

If you purchase the optional seat cushion or bag etc, these simply slide onto the seats.
 
The optional wheels are specially made for f-rib. These wheels are both clip on and detachable, so run the f-rib down the beach, float it off, flip them up and unclip!   These f-rib wheels do however require the bracket to be fixed and sealed to the transom, which we do here.
