A 550


The A550 is a popular size as you are still in the 5s with performance starkly different to others in this category. Uniquely seven adults can be seated comfortably behind the console so everyone on board is protected and dry. The generous beam and Turbo V hull makes for a seriously smooth and dry ride that Ribeye have built its reputation on. Based on the early Ribeye 540 Open, the A550 is a refinement of a British classic for those that demand high performance, luxury and practicality. The A550 is a force to be reckoned and with the capacity of 40 knots, it ticks a lot of boxes.

I don’t normally do this, but I just wanted to drop you a note to say how delighted we are with our new A550. The entire package is top quality and it comfortably exceeds our lofty expectations!
