Rigid Inflatable Boats

Volume 459: debated on Tuesday 1 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the acquisition costs are for each type of rigid inflatable boat used by the Royal Navy and Royal Marines. (134198)

There are 15 types of in-service Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat (RHIB). I am withholding the information about acquisition costs as its disclosure would prejudice commercial interests. Purchase costs do, however, range between approximately £20,000 and £200,000.
