New investment for Scorpion RIBS

Scorpion RIBS has secured new, private investment to develop new models across its range and strengthen the brand across the UK and European markets.

The new investment comes from two private sources, both of whom will become shareholders in the British company.

“I am delighted to be involved with such an important British brand with a global customer base,” said one of the investors, John Holden. “Scorpion has a rich history, and with new investment, a bright and exciting future.”

Each Scorpion is hand-built in Scorpion RIBS’ factory in Lymington, UK, with all aspects of the boats’ design, styling, moulding, and assembly carried out in-house, including the manufacture of the tubes and installation of engines.

This team is expected to expand as a result of the new investment.

Increased capabilities

“We’re excited about the new investment in Scorpion and are looking forward to the future,” said head of fit out, Craig McMahon, who has been with Scorpion for over 15 years.

“We’re looking forward to making the most of the factory’s increased capabilities, as well as welcoming new members to our dedicated team.”

Ancasta International Boat Sales is the exclusive dealer of Scorpion RIBs in the UK and Europe.

Andy Andrews, Scorpion brand manager at Ancasta, said: “Scorpion is widely acknowledged as one of the best RIB brands in the world. The unique hull design delivers the highest levels of safety as well as class-leading performance. They are ideal for chase boats and superyacht tenders.”

Ancasta recently presented Scorpion’s new Sting 10m Open at the Southampton International Boat Show.

There are currently three models in Scorpion’s range, the Serket, Sting and the Silurian chase boat.
