Ribco, a leader in premium Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs), has been appointed the official chase boat partner for the Australian SailGP Team. The Ribco range of superior performance RIBs will showcase alongside the turbo-charged foiling F50-class catamarans on Sydney Harbour during the inaugural global SailGP race in Sydney, 15th – 16th February 2019.

From luxury tender to offshore performance machine, Ribco RIBs are positioned as the most seaworthy, versatile and well-built luxury performance RIBs available in the market today. This was certainly the appeal for Tom Slingsby, Olympic gold medallist, eight-time world champion and Australian SailGP CEO and Team Skipper, when deciding to partner with Ribco.

"Having seen the Ribco boats perform on my home harbour, I'm excited and proud to have Ribco onboard with us as we compete in the SailGP Sydney Grand Prix. Not only are the Ribco boats of the highest quality, we know they'll be right beside us at 50 knots in comfort. The Ribco partnership builds on our mission to assemble the top of Australian sailing talent supported by an extended team focused on making our country, fans and sponsors proud to be on the journey with us," said Slingsby.

According to Oliver Workman of Ribco Australia, "Ribco is excited to partner with the Australian SailGP team. Every Ribco vessel on the harbour during the SailGP Sydney Grand Prix is the culmination of over two decades of design engineering and testing in the toughest conditions to ensure faultless operation at sea.

Together with the Australian SailGP team we look forward to delivering on our goals of unmatched speed, efficiency, safety and high-performance capability."
