Forth Ranger

Forth Ranger is the latest addition to our fleet, and undergoing sea trials and testing.  She is a totally unique boat, and no expense has been spared at any stage of her construction and fit out.

Forth Ranger is a Ribcraft 7.8m Professional and is powered by a Suzuki 250 hp engine, enabling her to hit 35-40 knots in calm conditions.  She has a bespoke Micro Cabin, which will protect the passengers from the elements, but retain the exhilaration of an open boat.

She is fitted with 8 Ullman suspension seats which are designed to protect the passengers and crew from the effects of impact when travelling at speed through rough water. It is rare to find this number of suspension seats on a passenger boat and they more often seen police and military vessels.

Forth Ranger will unashamedly will be the safest, most comfortable, and most technologically advanced boat of her class in Scotland.  She will be used for advanced training and passenger trips, so book your spot now!
