Ribcraft makes RIB delivery in Vermont

Ribcraft announced the recent delivery of two Ribcraft 6.5s to the Vermont State Police Marine Patrol.

The 21-foot RIBs will be used by the marine patrol and scuba team for patrols, dive operations, and general search-and-rescue applications on Lake Champlain.

The RIBs will provide the flexibility to fulfill the various mission requirements, as well as offering an open, stable platform for the dive team, the company said in a statement.

Equipped with a single 150-hp Evinrude E-TEC outboard, the boats will reach speeds in excess of 40 knots.
