The Ancasta Group is delighted to announce it has been appointed as the official dealer for Scorpion RIBs in the UK and Europe, with the 100% British made high-end recreational craft complementing its growing portfolio of new yachts, motorboats and RIBs.

With three models in the current range, each Scorpion RIB embodies the heritage of innovation and a hull design that has been evolved over 20 years of record-breaking offshore racing and ocean passages to deliver a safe, comfortable ride with outstanding performance in all conditions.

“It’s a privilege to be driving more exposure and awareness of this fantastic British brand to the boating public and marine industry,” says Andy Andrews, Scorpion Brand Manager.

“Scorpions are widely acknowledged as one of the best RIBs in the world because their unique hull design gives them the best of both worlds – the highest levels of safety and class leading performance.

“This partnership is a very positive move for both sides. With Ancasta providing sales and aftersales support for customers across the UK and Europe, the team at Scorpion can focus on its strength of manufacturing boats of exceptional quality and design, ideal for chase boats and superyacht tenders.”

Every Scorpion is hand built to the precise requirements of its owner in Scorpion RIBs’ factory in Lymington, UK. All aspects of the boats’ design, styling, moulding and assembly are accomplished by specialist in-house teams, including the manufacture of the tubes and installation of engines. This total control over design and build provides infinite customisation opportunities, to perfectly fit a customer’s individual requirements.

The three models in the Scorpion RIBs range are differentiated by their overall beam; Serket (available in 7.8m – 9.8m models) at 2.75m, Sting at 3m and the Silurian at 3.25m. They are available with various power options, including inboard, outboard and waterjet engines. Additionally, the Sting is available with a cabin option as well as open cockpit.

Patrick Byrne, CEO of Scorpion RIBs, comments: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Ancasta Group and its subsidiary PB Europe to amplify the reach of Scorpion RIBs in the UK and across Europe. Ancasta’s expertise and proven track record in the sales and marketing of premium brands, as well as its own dedicated after sales support capability, make it the ideal partner for us as we look to grow our brand’s presence in the leisure marine and superyacht sectors.”

Part of the Ancasta Group, PB Europe will be creating an extensive network of exclusive European dealers for Scorpion RIBs, as it has done for Rayglass Boats’ Protector vessels on the continent. PB Europe is actively seeking potential dealers throughout Europe and interested parties should contact Andy Andrews via 00 44 (0)7721 671045 or .

The Ancasta Group has an expansive network of 22 offices throughout Europe, with aftersales and commissioning departments in many strategic locations. At any given time, it has an average of 600 used boats for sale – Ancasta is also the official dealer for leading brands such as Beneteau, Bluegame, Prestige, Lagoon, Protector RIBs, CNB & McConaghy.
