Rolec Sponsor Round Britain eRIB

In 2023 the Round Britain team are going to attempt to travel around the UK on a Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB), but not just any RIB; an electric one!
The team, with the support of many leading industry organisations, are organising this event as they inspire to accelerate the rate of change in the boating industry, both in terms of available e-boat charging, but also with hope that the industry will invest in appropriate boat designs.
With that in mind Rolec Marina are delighted to announce that it will be partnering with Round Britain eRIB as an official sponsor to support the UK’s marine industry transition to zero-emission travel. In order for Round Britain eRIB to complete their challenge of travelling around the whole of the Britain in an electric RIB, the charging infrastructures for boats at waterfront destinations needed to improve significantly. To accommodate these requirements, Rolec Marina will be providing their products and services to up to 40 locations around Great Britain and Northern Ireland, which will help develop a daisy chain of charging facilities.
EV and E-Boat Charging Specialist, Steve King said:
“After 30 years of servicing marinas and boatyards, and over a decade helping to build the UKs electric vehicle charging infrastructure, it feels nothing more than natural to now turn our attention to assisting the emerging electric boat market. We gladly offer our insight, experience and product knowledge to any marina, boatyard or water-front location looking at zero emission travel, and we are proud to be involved in the exciting Round Britain eRIB challenge.”
Round Britain eRIB Skipper and Marketing Manager, Harry Besley said:
“This partnership is a big step forward in helping our Locations become ‘Challenge Ready’ and enabling ports, harbours and marinas all around the coast to benefit from both the discount and the media coverage associated with this Challenge.”
