Ballistic RIB 7.8, "REBUS"
Ballistic RIBs were conceived in Britain and seriously put to the test in 2003 in the tortuous 1000km Trans Agulhas race and came through with flying colours, taking three out of the top five places. The boats are now built in a suburb of Cape Town, which is situated right on the boundary of two great oceanic currents. From the east, the Agulhas Current sweeps along the coast, bringing the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. From the north and west comes the Benguela Current; this is a totally different animal – it is deep, cold water upwelling from the southern Atlantic. It is hard charging against this backdrop of wild water where Ballistic RIBs carved their worldwide reputation. They are built to cope with adverse conditions and provide a fast conveyance for a variety of end-users, from pleasure owners to professional and military use. Built without any timber in the construction, the hull is stiffened and the deck supported on a massively strong, moulded ladder chassis of foam and fibreglass.
The Rebus is a fantastic RIB and with 380 engine hours it is a virtually new boat. Ballistic is known for creating "missiles on the water" with suprising amount of stability and control. The owner is selling due to lack of time. The Boat has 8 seats in the back and a half circle bench to enjoy a sunny day on the water. The RIB comes with a combination, road (Not MOT certified) and launch trailer.
