Ring Vampire: Global Product Launch

Published on: 30/11/2021


Ring Powercraft are very proud to announce the official launch of ‘Vampire’ -A collaboration project to create a Rapid Deployment Transporter on a fully modular RIB platform.

The innovative British performance boat builder has teamed with top tier marine companies to deliver a high performance transport platform with the ability to meet multiple operational requirements. The open aft deck with quick release track mounting system facilitates deployment and recovery of everything from Drones to Quad Bikes.

First variant on the water is the VT-1050, the smaller of 2 model sizes, boasting a twin jet ski system, with the larger VT-1250 having capacity for 4 skis plus crew. This blended COTS product will offer a variety of standard track mounted modules and Ring’s design team will also offer a bespoke service to facilitate specific equipment/loading requirements. A wide range of propulsion options are available with air, land or sea insertion variants.


Collaboration partners were selected to optimise the design process:-

Alamarin: Water Jet and Sigma control system

E. P. Barrus: Yanmar inboard engines

Golden Arrow Marine: Tactical Water Craft

Henshaw Inflatables (Wing Group): Hypalon Tubes

Seadek: HD shock mitigating flooring

Simrad: Tech Equipment

Ullman: Suspension seating and Steering Bar System

Vanclaes: Jet Ski Loader track module


Ring’s CEO David Jackson comments:-

“Vampire is a ground breaking project in pursuing our vision for modular boating across our ranges. Applications for commercial and tactical functions were a key driver, however, the multi-functional aspect also appeals to the leisure and Superyacht sectors and you will see this theme continue in our future product launches including the Arksen 45. The ability to easily transform the boat’s function in a matter of minutes has cost and operational benefits for all types of professional users, individuals and families who want the freedom to be able to enjoy a wide range of activities.

We chose a collaborative approach to optimise design by working with top industry experts in their various fields relating to the craft and its’ operation. I would like to thank all of our partners who have shown outstanding support from supply, technical and resource perspectives. Our thanks also go to the many end users who have kindly assisted with their invaluable feedback. Our ambition to be the partner of choice for innovative marine projects remains core to our strategy.”
