Ribco RSY 53 Design


As you would expect the exterior design of the Ribco RSY 53 is an evolution of the design language that has become synonymous with the Ribco DNA, who are Known for creating stylish and highly progressive performance Rigid inflatables designs. This ethos and progressions are rooted deep within the angular striking lines of the yacht’s exterior.

The deck layout allows for space and comfort with an array of seating and table space, providing an exceptional space for socialising and lounging. The design can support a sliding door option into the interior saloon and helm station providing a practical option for colder climates or just to escape the elements at high speeds.

Both versions are provided with a spacious stern beach platform area and are equipped with opacmare swim ladders, enabling you to enter and exit the water with ease.


The design of the yacht offers a luxurious feel, with space to enjoy a drink on the aft deck with dinner, or want to relax in the enclosed saloon on the large corner seating with a movie.

Storage is in abundance, with under sofa storage throughout the yacht and space in the galley for all stores and provisions. Stylish sliding doors separate the aft deck to the cockpit where a saloon, galley and helming station are positioned.

The helm station supports an ergonomically optimised contemporary design, with comfort and control at the forefront of the concept, incorporating four Ullman Atlantic shock-absorbing seats and folding bolster high levels of comfort in extreme sea conditions or at speed.
