New Premises, new team members and new orders
Strength to Strength PR Banner

Following soaring demand for our Pulse 63 electric RIB, we are experiencing exponential growth. With orders coming in at pace, we are relocating our assembly line to larger premises and expanding our team to fulfil orders.

Since launching the Pulse 63 electric RIB a year ago, build slots have been booking up quickly. Production has now begun and over 50 electric RIBs are expected to roll out of the shed during 2022. To meet demand, we are relocating our production line from our sister company’s workshop at RS Sailing HQ in Romsey to MDL’s Hamble Point Marina. With both companies growing rapidly, our current facility is at capacity, so the new unit will provide the extra space required to build the boats at a faster rate.

The location also offers quick and easy access to the Solent for sea trials and customer demonstrations.

All RS Electric Boats are made in the UK using the best material suppliers and manufacturing partners available. By keeping the final assembly process local, our team has greater control over quality and the opportunity to develop and refine the boats in a considered and organic way.

We are also expanding our team in line with the growth. Recently appointed Senior Project Manager, Rob Hopper, has been brought onboard to ensure slick and efficient production, and new jobs in technical design, production, and sales will be open for applications imminently.

With quick acceleration, energy-efficient performance and world-leading technology onboard, the Pulse 63 electric RIB is designed to enhance on-water activities, whilst being kind to the planet. The electric propulsion is emissions-free, with no unpleasant fumes, or risk of oil spills. It is also extremely quiet with minimal wake for discrete operations and a comfortable ride, and built using recycled materials in key areas.

“We’re very excited to have started production of our Pulse 63 electric RIB and look forward to setting up an efficient assembly line in our new workshop. We’ve been inundated with enquiries about the Pulse 63 from all over the world, including marine based organisations, sailing schools, superyacht captains and leisure boaters, and expect to see our first customer handovers happen very soon,” says  Jon Partridge, Commercial CEO, RS Electric Boats.

“With the new premises and a larger team, we’ll have the capacity to help even more people switch to electric and enjoy playing and working on the water in a more environmentally friendly way. “
