South African Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) builder Gemini Marine has announced Berthon as its sole UK & Ireland dealer for its range of military, rescue, commercial and leisure RIBs.

Gemini Marine designs and manufactures comprehensive range of cabin and open RIBs for many of the world's military, rescue and commercial operators, as well as supplying RIBs into the leisure, expedition and adventure sectors.

"As one of the UK's established marine sales and service brands, Berthon will give Gemini customers the highest quality product and the most reliable after-sales care and in-service support. From its Lymington base, Berthon will be promoting sales of Gemini RIBS throughout the UK and Ireland into all market sectors," said a press release from Berthon.

Berthon will be holding a stock of new RIBs and spare parts at its 10 acre (46,000m2) modern boatyard.

"With customisations which we will carry out in our Lymington shipyard, we can take a standard product and make it suit every customer's unique requirements. Gemini's comprehensive range of RIBs and inflatables neatly fills the gap in our product portfolio," said Dominic May, Director of Berthon.

"There can be no better way to celebrate Gemini's 40th birthday in 2019 than by partnering with Berthon. Gemini is undertaking a worldwide expansion programme to serve the rapid increase in the need for quality RIBS," said Gerhard Neethling, Gemini Marine Global Sales & Marketing Manager.

To power the Gemini RIBs, Berthon will be offering the full Mercury range of petrol outboard motors, and the Cox 300hp diesel outboard motors too. All other engine makes can also be supplied and fitted.
