Newly Arrived – The Redbay Stormforce 7.4 meter RIB “Valdariya”

Commercially licensed by Irish Marine Survey Office and UK’s MCA for operations in Irish and UK coastal waters.

Coastal Zone Services have just taken delivery of their new Stormforce 7.4 metre Rib. Built by Redbay Boats of Cushendall Co Antrim in 2013, the “Valdariya” was recently displayed at the Boat show in Southampton. Redbay have developed an excellent reputation for the safe, tough, rugged nature of their boats. The design and build quality of Redbays boats have helped to make them the RIB of choice for many commercial operators.

Features

Powered by Suzuki 250HP 4 stroke engine and with sprint speed circa 45 knots and operational cruising speed 25 knots –

The Stormforce 7.4 is a powerful sea boat, featuring a deep V hull form, which contributes to its top class performance in rough offshore conditions.The deep V hull is combined with sprayrails to produce additional lift and improve the hydrodynamics of the hull. It also features 22″ diameter tubes designed to sit firmly in contact with the water surface while at rest, ensuring maximum stability.

These features combine to make the Valdariya a fast, stable and dry vessel even in challenging sea conditions.

In addition to its excellent sea keeping abilities, we chose the 7.4m Valdariya because it is the optimum size for mobility. The advantage of this sized boat is that it is transportable by trailer to any location in Ireland or the UK for rapid deployment.

Our 7.4 m RIB Valdariya has recently been busy providing support for a film crew filming a promotional video at the Cliffs of Moher in Co. Clare.

The UK based production company Mojofuel engaged CZS to provide logistical support to a film crew from Crewroom ltd, for the making of a short promotional film for a drinks company, at the Cliffs of Moher/Lahinch area of the Clare Coast.

The Valdariya is ideal for this purpose as she is a very sturdy and fast boat and is designed to achieve top class performance and stability in rough offshore conditions- needless to say operating on the Clare coast in March provided plenty of challenges and she was well tested and proved her abilities.

Valdaria’s layout can easily be customised to suit whateverjob she is required for. She has removable seats and a non slip stable platform which can be fitted to the deck for mounting filming equipment or attaching cargo.
