Pacific Boats & Yachts represents RIB manufacturer


The popularity of Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs) in Hawaii’s ocean recreation tourism industry led Pacific Boats & Yachts (PBY) on an exhaustive search for a company that could deliver custom built boats rugged enough to live up to the rigors of daily professional use in Hawaiian waters.

“We wanted to find a manufacturer that could custom design and build USCG certified RIBs for more than six passengers, at a reasonable price, in a comparatively short period of time.” said Rick Gaffney, PBY’s Managing Broker. “Pacific Boats & Yachts is pleased to have found such a company, and proud to have been chosen to represent Ocean Craft Marine in the Central Pacific.”

Ocean Craft Marine manufacturers USCG certified rigid inflatable work boats, perfect for the ocean recreation industry in the islands. Unlike many builders, the company manufactures the entire vessel — from the hull, to the Hypalon tubes, to the welded stainless steel sun-top frame — which means it can customize every aspect of the boat to meet a company’s unique needs.

Hull material (aluminum or fiberglass), tube color, seating layout and type, power choice and shade-top options can all be customized to meet the specific needs of any charter boat business.

Ocean Craft Marine has proven their performance and reliability in military, commercial and recreational applications around the world.

Building Special Forces insertion vessels, police, security and fireboats, and many other kinds of work boats of every conceivable description, has perfected the company’s ability to deliver functional, hard-working RIBs, on-time and on-budget.

Pacific Boats & Yachts has been Hawaii’s premier powerboat brokerage in Hawaii for more than 25 years. Located in Kona’s Honokohau Harbor, PBY is also the exclusive dealers for CABO Yachts, Catalina Sailboats, Scout Boats, Ocean Craft Marine and Albermarle Sportfishing Boats.
