HALMATIC ARCTIC 24This rigid inflatable RIB boat has recently (2019) undergone an expensive refurbishment and upgrade, with the work being carried out at highly regarded yards on the Clyde.The hull is a Halmatic Arctic 24. This hull is built to R.N specifications and have been rigorously tested for their seaworthiness and robust manufacture (hulls are drop tested from the back of RAF Hercules and must withstand a 10m drop bow/stern and abeam, literally indestructible). They are a fantastically tough boat and much sought after.The boat was fitted with brand new tubes in 2019 by the well-regarded Henshaws. Engine – Mercury Verado 200hp 4stroke. Still under warranty, 86 hours only so effectively brand new.Boat professionally refitted at Ribs Marine Scotland and Swordfish Marine Engineers. The owner designed the new layout of the boat for expedition cruising with family on the west coast of Scotland and the Hebrides and in waters ranging from the calm of the Kyles of Bute to the rough weather around the outer isles.Console was made to measure, extra lockers and extra padded seats – the front two seats are shock absorbing motorised units.The boat has a canopy for countering serious bad weather.
