We work with some of the UK’s largest RIB manufacturers who will only accept the very best. All of our products are designed and manufactured to be fully compliant, functional and aesthetically stunning. We’re committed to providing products manufactured to exacting requirements and of the highest quality.Our tube technicians have a wealth of knowledge and experience of many models and types of RIB tubes, with our team taking great pride in both their work and our customer’s satisfaction.
We are proud to present our services to you and we are confident that once you have seen our work we’ll be your long-term supplier of choice. Our products are carefully designed with the aid of CAD to ensure you provide your customers with a safe, functional and fully ISO compliant product. Our Technical Construction Files are made available for each fitted tube on a cloud based server for easy reference.
The wealth of knowledge for designing a suitable RIB tube for your application comes from an in-depth understanding of the design brief, compliance requirements and driving technologies, and we always push ourselves that little bit harder to ensure the standard of our work can’t be matched.
We take great pride in our work and believe that our unique approach to design, attention to detail, quality and sensible pricing structure will enable us to play a pivotal role in your business.
All replacement tubes are designed from scratch with compliance requirements and the customer in mind, and not by simply using the existing tube as a pattern. As a result many older models of RIB can be brought up to date with a more modern, aesthetically pleasing look, in-keeping with the latest models of RIBs.
Our tubes are manufactured using Hypalon® coated fabric manufactured by Pennel & Flipo, covered by a 5 year warranty. All replacement RIB tubes provided by VML are covered by a 2 year warranty.
We can also refurbish older tubes as well as customisation. Our repairs usually exceed our customers' expectations. You'll be amazed at what damage can be repaired, saving you both time and money over the cost of a replacement tube. All of our repairs are covered by a 12 month warranty.
Our ongoing commitment to pushing the boundaries of design and function provides unique product features that sets us apart from the competition. Our unique registered design and styling options compliment the aesthetics of modern Superyachts.
Backed by solid market research and six months of development and prototype testing, our fenders adhere to relevant compliance criteria and are therefore deemed to be truly fit for purpose.Please go to ultimatefenders.com to find out more
