RIB’s can be used to support a larger yacht, as a passenger or crew boat for use from yacht to shore, and they are often used as safety boats as they are fast and very maneuverable.  A RIB may also be used to tow yachts and other vessels or as a dive boat. The RIB Skipper should be fully conversant with his or her vessel and who to use it. That is what this course is all about.
