Boat Club Trafalgar Unveils Brand-New Ballistic XP80 RIB

Boat Club Trafalgar has announced the addition of Phoenix, a premium Ballistic XP80 8m RIB, to their fleet.

This state-of-the-art vessel, equipped with a powerful Yamaha F300hp outboard, will be available to all Platinum, Platinum Joint and Platinum Corporate members throughout the rest of the 2024 boating season. Phoenix, currently retailing at £157,000, is on loan from UK Ballistic RIB distributors, RIBS For Sale, and promises to deliver an exceptional boating experience to the club’s growing membership numbers.

Boat Club Trafalgar has already made significant investments in their fleet this year, adding four brand-new Ballistic RIBs: two Ballistic LS60s, Hebe and Luna, and two Ballistic LS78s, Sunna and Enyo. This investment, worth over £300,000, underscores the club’s commitment to providing top-tier boating options for their members.

Introduced in 2023, the Ballistic XP80 represents a revolutionary step forward in RIB design. This 8-metre vessel is crafted for ultimate adventures on the water, featuring innovative amenities such as a hidden head (toilet) in the centre console, an entertainment area, and a luxurious sun bed at the rear. The structured T-Top roof is designed to carry gear for any adventure, from diving equipment to fishing gear – even sunbathing – ensuring that members can explore the water with ease.

The XP80 is more than just a day boat; it offers onboard accommodation for two people with its unique pop-up tent, allowing for extended trips without sacrificing comfort. Whether members are exploring remote coves, embarking on multi-day fishing trips, or enjoying a night under the stars, the XP80 is equipped to meet their needs.

Steve Rodwell, Boat Club Manager, said: “Our club is growing stronger every day, with more members embracing the membership boating model. We now boast a fleet of 11 premium RIBs and powerboats, including four brand-new additions already this season. The anticipation for the Ballistic XP80 has been incredible, with members constantly asking, ‘When are we getting one!?’ We’re thrilled to offer Phoenix to our members this season. We can’t wait for them to enjoy her.”

Boat Club Trafalgar, established in 2016, aims to make boating easier, more accessible, and affordable. Inspired by the busy lives of many, Trafalgar Group MD Jonny Boys pioneered a new model for enjoying boating. The entire team is passionate about helping people get on the water and achieve their dreams.
