RING POWERCRAFT have built an outstanding reputation for ground-breaking high performance hulls, with exceptional manoeuvrability and rough water handling, that have resulted in numerous racing accolades and speed records.
The late 1960s through to the 80s were the heyday for the ownership of family sports boating in the UK. During this period there were numerous high profile British companies producing and selling boats in large numbers across Europe and the performance sports boater aspired to own a Ring. The Ring ethos was not to design and build solely for racing, but to create family sports boats that could be successfully raced due to their fantastic handling, tracking and top end speed. Speed Records and success in powerboat and waterski racing endorsed the quality of the designs. The endurance from being in these competitive fields proved the quality of manufacture and strength of design, which remains the core of the company strategy with hull design constantly evolving.
Innovation and forward thinking have kept the brand at the forefront of high speed boating. What some now see as “new" technology has been tried and tested by RING POWERCRAFT - in many cases in a race environment. For example, Ring were the first UK company to introduce stepped hulls to standard production ski and boats in the UK in the late 1970s. This enhancement delivered speed records at Windermere and championship wins in the UK and Continental Europe. Experiments followed with ventilated steps and Notches to hull bottoms which have all contributed to the evolution of today's designs.
From Aquatruk fast general purpose dinghies in Bembridge in 1968 and racing 16 foot sports boats across the English Channel to building high speed offshore tactical ribs in 2018, the performance DNA of the Ring names continues.
