Late 2011 we wrote about the collaboration between Ribbon Yachts and Vripack, that had resulted into a new tender, the Ribbon 45 SC. We recently met up with Ribbon Yachts' President and founder Stephen van den Berg, who told us all about what makes this spacious 45 footer so special.
Sharp edges, precise lines and clean surfaces: these are ingredients of a style reduced to the essential. Each element is created exactly according to its function. Ornaments and decorations are totally foreign to a Ribbon. The vacuum injected composite instruction, engineered by Vripack and Conyplex, gives the Ribbon 45 SC an extremely stiff structure.
The twin Rolls-Royce water jets powered by Cummins engines are controlled by the vector stick control system providing in state-of-the-art easy docking and maneuverability with very tight turning circles and super fine control in fine quarters.
The Ribbon 45 SC has a fully equipped helm and navigation cockpit which is located in the middle of the yacht. The station is fitted out with three Recaro sport bucket seats providing exceptionally firm support around the hip and shoulder areas.
Interested clients will be able to test the Ribbon 45 for themselves during the Monaco Yacht Show, where Stephen will be present with the yacht, ready to take her out for a seatrial.
