    Hi Guys,
    has anyone any idea what is the largest rib boat ever made, I've seen them as large rescue boats and power boats but what is the largest and has anyone any plans of building a LARGE RIB in the future????. When I say large I mean about 50ft + or has this been done before, I would welcome any pictures you may have as I'm very interested in the rib design on a bigger scale.

    The largest one I know about is a 18m rib the Italian coast guard uses. Though there may be bigger ones.
