The RIBs

Dash & Dubh in West Bay

Lyme Bay RIB Charter operates 3 fully bespoke, purpose built passenger carrying RIBs.


RIB Challenger

Our 7.8m RIBcraft is powered by the latest 250hp four stroke engine. With comfortable seating for 9 passenger +1crew (although licensed to carry 11 passengers +1crew) and plenty of dry storage, Challenger is at home in all situations.

These boats are widely recognised as one of the best RIBs, and one of the most commonly used for passenger charter. She is fast, capable of 43kts. Nimble and reassuringly sure footed. Challenger is our primary teaching vessel and used for water sports in our summer base of Lyme Regis.


Dubh Mor

Dubh Mor arrived in West Bay Dorset

Dubh Mor (pronounced DO MORE and meaning Black Big) is the latest addition to the LBRC fleet, joining us for 2022. Originally working in Skye, she is a near perfect match for us!

Dubh Mor is also 10m long, has an extra wide beam and is powered by TWO 300hp outboard engines.

Her seating allows for 12 passengers on individual seats, arranged in pairs.

She is fitted with AIS, and radar for additional safety.


Dash of Lyme

Dash in West Bay

Dash of Lyme is our secret weapon! 10m long and over 3m wide makes her SUPER comfortable in the waves. Powered by twin 300hp outboards Dash can reach speed in excess of 55mph (if required..!) Comfortable seating for 12 passengers and 2 crew, Dash has dry storage beneath the seats which makes her a superb sea going passenger RIB.

Our RIBs are fitted with the latest safety and hi-tech navigation equipment, AIS, fixed and portable VHF radios, plus everything required to meet the MCA standards (plus more!)  ensuring the highest standards of protection and comfort for passengers. Purpose built to bespoke specifications all of our boats are fast, fuel efficient, comfortable and provide dynamic handling capabilities whilst remaining incredibly safe.
