RIB Boat Manufacturers

Are you looking for RIB boat manufacturers for either a custom or semi-custom build? If you are, look no further than Compass Tenders Ltd, a company with years of experience in building and repairing tenders. To find out more about how we can help you, please call us today on 02380 457844.


At Compass Tenders Ltd, we are RIB boat builders that provide clients with custom Sports RIBs. Our 8m Sports Rib has an optional 1.6m removable bow section to facilitate stowing in a confined area. The interior layout has been optimised as an owner’s sports RIB to give a comfortable high speed driving position.

As RIB boat manufacturers, Compass tenders are individually designed and built to meet the specific requirements of our clients and to complement the mothership. This is from initial concept and styling to choice of equipment, paint colour, and interior finish.

Features of this Custom Sports RIB include:

  • Ski/Towing Bollard
  • Custom Stainless Steel Side Mounting Swim Ladder
  • Over Tube Boarding Steps with Removable Lollipop Handrail
  • Freshwater Shower
  • High Quality Stereo System.

Our 7.5m RIB is an ideal crew launch/activities tender, built for Titan, a 78m motor yacht, to serve this purpose. The tender was designed for garage stowage and launching with beam cranes, and the design focussed on practicality and versatility.

While its primary function is as a crew/supply tender, it also makes an excellent water sports platform with towing, bathing platform with fold-down ladder, and high quality stereo system. As RIB boat manufacturers, we work from initial concept and styling to choice of equipment, colour, and finish.

Here at Compass Tenders Ltd, we are manufacturers of RIB boats. Our D-RIBs range offers both versatile and desirable tenders, designed to be tailored to the exacting needs of each client. These work equally well as an owner’s launch or practical crew tender, and the deep V hull offers an exceptionally comfortable and dry ride.

The D-shaped inflatable collar increases the internal volume and seating capacity, while maintaining all the benefits of a conventional RIB. As RIB boat manufacturers, we offer a range of interior layouts and propulsion packages to fit the needs of each mothership and intended usage. These include centre or offset console, built in cool box, a variety of seating layouts, interior cockpit lighting, and painted specialists non-slip or teak floor finishes.

Each tender features a large bathing platform incorporating and integral bathing ladder, fold-down steps with removable lollipop handrail, and a high quality stereo system. Instrument packages are available to client specification when you choose us as manufacturers of RIB boats.


As well as being RIB boat builders, we also offer a range of yacht tenders in varying sizes, from 9m right up to 14m. Our limousine tender 9m seats up to ten guests in complete comfort and incorporates innovative twin electronically powered sliding sunroof panels, designed to maximise passenger comfort. This design facilitates full standing access from both fore and aft entrances, ensuring a light, airy interior ambience. Additionally, this features a champagne fridge and bar facilities, along with air conditioning that can provide both cooling and heating systems. The entertainment system incorporates surround sound features and two flat screen TVs, which can carry content from the iPod dock, security camera footage, and navigational data.
