YACHT IN is proud to announce the new exclusive dealership for RIBCO high performance RIBs.

Leading Croatian yacht brokerage company YACHT IN is delighted to announce they are now the official RIBCO dealer for SE Europe focusing on the Adriatic region, in response to the growing regional trend for larger, more versatile superyacht tenders and luxury day boats.

RIBCO’s range of luxury performance maxi RIB tenders are the ultimate accessory for the luxury boating enthusiast. With a range of maxi RIBs spanning from the powerful R23 right up to the jet-black Venom 44, each RIBCO model has been crafted as an offshore performance machine with all the superyacht-style trimmings. With customisable layouts and a host of options including teak decking, built-in Nespresso coffee machines, JL sound systems with subwoofers, sunbeds and swim platforms, cabins and showers, a RIBCO is anything its client wants it to be.


These extraordinary machines are now easily obtainable in Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, North Macedonia and Albania due to this exciting new partnership with YACHT IN, an elite boutique yacht brokerage set up in 2010 in Zadar, Croatia to service the burgeoning demand for luxury yachting in the broader Adriatic Region. While a relative newcomer to the brokerage scene, YACHT IN was born out of many years of yachting insider experience, led by ex-superyacht captain, Slaven Knežević, and superyacht broker Matija Zelić, who came to YACHT IN after a career in yacht sales at some of the world’s finest shipyards. The team brings exceptional local knowledge and an innovative ‘can-do’ attitude to the table, and is always looking for new partnerships and products to better service their elite clientele, such as this brand new collaboration with RIBCO. As Matija Zelić, Sales Director at YACHT IN explains,

We are happy to enter 2020 positively by acquiring new exclusive regional dealership for RIBCO high performance RIBs. It is a joy to see that the yachting industry is maturing and ready for a new era where products with ‘heart, soul, and muscles’ are being recognised as the next big thing.


It’s easy to see why these performance machines are making such a splash in the luxury yacht sector. Sleek, powerful, and blisteringly fast, RIBCO’s maxi RIBs can attain top speeds of over 60 knots and handle winds up to force 8 and average wave height up to 4 metres, making this a superb choice as a support all-weather vessel for superyacht operations or as an offshore day boat.

For the more tranquil days out cruising the beautiful Adriatic coastline, the RIBCO range delivers easy handling and an incredibly smooth ride thanks to their two and three-step hulls, allowing them to glide effortlessly across any choppy waters. The boats also perform very well at low speeds. The RIBs’ big, stable platform makes it easy to board from the dock or a yacht’s swim platform, while keeping the guests dry at high speeds, and the engines are surprisingly quiet. All these things combine to make the ultimate superyacht tender or day boat. Whether arriving in Hvar or Bodrum, Venice or the Bay of Kotor, a RIBCO tender assures that you arrive at the dock (or the beach club) in consummate style.

Venom 44

With the Venom 44’s race car-style seats and a helm station straight out of a fighter jet, it’s easy to see why clients have called these boats, ‘Lamborghinis on the water’, and why RIBCO has been chosen as the official chase boat for the Sydney Sail GP. With over two decades of research and development behind each new RIBCO launch, RIBCO has earnt its reputation in the superyacht world as supremely well-built, devilishly good looking, and jolly good fun.

‘Where luxury meets offshore’ is the ethos of the RIBCO fleet, and there’s no better complement to the superyacht lifestyle.


YACHT IN and RIBCO are a natural partnership. Both companies are founded on the values of innovation, reliability and meticulous customer service, and, as Zelić explains, the companies’ philosophies complement each other.

Coming from the superyacht industry, we truly believe that RIBCO’s performance relates to YACHT IN, as RIBCO’s supreme quality and performance naturally link to our existing line of products and services, as well as to our business philosophy. Superyachts are the backbone of Yacht IN’s business, and RIBCO’s vessels are the perfect extension of this, as well as being a new stand-alone stream of our company’s business.

Stelios Ladopolous, CEO of RIBCO, concurs that this partnership is a superb development for both parties, and looks forward to great things ahead.

We are very excited with this new partnership and we are certain YACHT IN can drive great achievements in the region. Yacht IN’s mission is to become the region’s leading service provider for global citizens who seek expertise and the highest quality, in maintaining a lifestyle of passion and luxury. The team is very experienced and they work hard to give their clients and partners the best possible service and products.

A RIBCO maxi RIB is the ultimate vessel for someone who requires a tender born of raw power, meticulous build quality, and sleek good looks. And as of 2020, YACHT IN is the sole brokerage to provide these exceptional machines to their clients in Croatia and the broader Adriatic region (Slovenia, Montenegro, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, North Macedonia and Albania).
