Quinquari Marine Win Contract to Supply Welsh Police Force

Quinquari Marine win the contract to supply Welsh Police Force ‘Dyfed Powys Police’ with a New 10m RIB 

The boat will be used by officers from the Marine Section, assisted by specially-trained fire arm officers from across the Force.

The craft is a Humber Offshore 10m RIB and will be powered by the latest Evinrude ETEC G2 250hp Outboards. These outboards are one of the most fuel efficient outboards an the market, which will reduce the Force’s fuel usage and carbon footprint. The RIB will be fitted out with the latest Raymarine navigational package.  

The Marine Section is based at Neyland Marine and is responsible for policing the waterways of the Port of Milford Haven and the Pembrokeshire Coastline. 

The work carried out by the section is specialised and hugely diverse, and includes crime prevention patrols, responding to incidents on the water, searching for missing people, body recovery and boarding vessels with fisheries and ports officers.

Rhys Price, Director at Quinquari Marine, said: ”When we became aware that Dyfed Powys Police were interested in purchasing a new RIB, we recognised that this was an opportunity not to be missed. We are looking forward to seeing the new RIB on the water in the Spring of 2017”. 

Invictus - Our Most Advanced RIB Ever

Our newest vessel Invictus is the most advanced RIB we have ever built with a Shockwave ICE3 console set atop a Humber 9m hull. Two Evinrude G2 ETEC 300hp outboard engines provide Invictus with enough power to easily reach 60 knots in all conditions. She is also kitted out with the latest Raymarine setup including a thermal imaging camera for operation in poor visibility and even surround sound speakers complete with a waterproof iPod docking system.

The Shockwave console sits a foot or so above the main deck of the boat on hydraulic suspension reducing the impact caused when hitting the water. Travelling at fast speeds feels smooth whilst the steering stays responsive.

Invictus proves how versatile RIB vessels can be and pushes the limits for all-weather racing boats. Invictus is designed to be used in all manner of weather conditions no matter how rough the sea or strong the wind.
