D-Marin Business Bay Marina has taken delivery of a new Ribcraft 5.85-meter Pro rigid inflatable boat (RIB) to be used for operations support at the marina.

Featuring a center console with extended canopy, removable crew seat, highly reinforced inflation tubes, the RIB provides open deck space for rescue operations, garbage collection as well as forward custom area for fitting a portable fire pump to be used in an emergency situation. Powered by Yamaha 115-horsepower outboard, the RIB can reach speeds in excess of 40 miles per hour, the builder said. Special features include the Ribcraft’s impact push bow, sprayed over with blast mitigation coating.

The boat was named Mako, after the fastest shark in the world.

D-Marin Business Bay Marina is the first leisure yacht marina on the Dubai Canal, offering 157 berths. Linking the Creek with the Jumeirah coastline, D-Marin Business Bay Marina provides calm city cruising.

Ribcraft said it worked closely with D-Marin Business Bay Marina to understand their operational requirements and built a boat that meets their demands.
