Trailblazing Industry Leader

“We are incredibly excited to introduce XO Boats by Ribeye – a partnership that combines two specialist boat builders celebrated for their design philosophy, family values and exceptional service.” James Burroughs (Managing Director)

We believe Ribeye and XO both lead their individual markets. With over 25 years of boat-building experience, Ribeye is a trusted brand recognised for luxury, performance, and British heritage. We have followed XO Boats and their journey for a number of years and we can confidently say they are perfectly suited to the UK environment and truly are the best in their class. Ribeye admire the deep-V hull architecture of an XO based on its aluminium hull, not only for its sustainability but also military-grade strength and smoothness at sea. Ribeye wouldn’t put their name to another boat builder if they didn’t reciprocate their values of quality and pride which can be seen across all the XO builds with their stringent quality checks and luxurious finish. The design team at XO are experts in creating boats renowned for their sea keeping but also for offering ingenious features to allow for magical boating adventures from dusk until dawn. 

So why buy your XO with Ribeye?

The Ribeye XO partnership is unique in the market. We are not a reseller or dealer but an established boat builder celebrated for building the best RIBs in the world with superlative customer service like no other. As a family business with very few partners, if we are putting our name to something we take it very seriously.    

  • The XO by Ribeye experience is completely unique in the industry. We can offer individual factory tours where you get to see a range of boats in build and meet the team behind them. You are then chauffeur-driven to the private jetty to begin your demonstration on one of the most beautiful parts of the UK coastline
  • Ribeye’s quality control department demands a superyacht level of finish with stringent quality checks throughout the XO build and upon sign off
  • In-depth handovers on the water with experienced boat drivers are uniquely tailored to your requirements
  • Ribeye are the only boat manufacturer in the UK to offer a certified powerboat school and the PB2 course can be available to all new XO owners
  • The Ribeye aftersales service extends to all XO boats. Our support with your boating needs goes way beyond the handover

The combination of an XO Boat and our award-winning levels of service and support means we can offer you complete peace of mind.
