Rupert Marine introduces Rupert 52 Cabin
Ruperts latest design is a 52 ft open cabin designed mainly as a chase boat for the mega yacht market.
Twin Volvo Penta D6-400 or if you prefer it a bit wilder twin MAN-800 and Rolls-Royce water jets allowing for a top speed around 50 knots.
This is one of our most powerful RIBs, or as one of our clients expressed it: "What a beast!"

Indi Jones in New York
Rupert 50 Wheel House “Indi Jones”, tender to the Wally 100ft sailing yacht Indio.
Indi Jones made a look around in New York city’s harbour area on her long journey from Newport, Rhode Island to Miami Florida in late November. Indi Jones was catched by the New York blogger Will Van Dorp who runs the blog Tugster.wordpress.com
Rupert Marine has delivered a 50-foot RIB as a tender to the 100 ft Wally, S/Y Indio
The 50-foot tender “Indi Jones” is based on the Rupert 50 Wheel House and customized to the buyer’s specifications. “Indi Jones” is built according to yacht standards and colour coded to match the mother ship.
The tender is equipped with an advanced navigation system, full air conditioning, water maker, ice maker and all the amenities expected on a tender of this class. To assist S/Y Indio there is also an integrated fuel transfer station on the aft platform. The large workspace on aft deck can easily be converted to a big sun bed or nice lounge area with a retractable sunshade.
Twin MAN 800 Hp diesel engines coupled to a pair of
Rolls Royce/Kamewa water jets gives the tender a speed range of 45 to 49 knots. The new steering system ROCCS from Rolls Royce/Kamewa makes manoeuvring extremely easy and tight turns are comfortable with the trim tabs integrated in the steering.
Right now “Indi Jones” is on her way to Newport, Rhode Island to assist S/Y Indio in the Newport Bucket Regatta in August.

Design study of Ruptech 32 Open
Ruptech 32 Open is designed by Mannerfelt Design Team and based on the same hull as Ruptech 32 Coupé. The hull design is rooted in offshore racing and guarantees, together with modern production techniques, high performance, low fuel consumption and excellent seakeeping. Ruptech 32 Open, like its sister 32 Coupé, is an uncompromising boat for the connoisseur.
Very convincing results from the test drive
of Ruptech 32
- September 14, 2010, Stockholm archipelago
- Sun, +15C, wind 9m/s from SE, wave height 0,3-0,4 m
- Ruptech test boat, deck with holes for ballast in moveable water barrels to simulate different weights and bow- and stern heavy boat
- Engine Volvo D6-370/DPR
- All tests done running against and with the wind. Results are shown as averages
- Test pilots: Carl Wranding, Leo Crambert and Andreas Andersen
|Weight 1: 3480 kg = normally equipped boat, fuel tank half full (200 litres) and 4 persons|
|Top speed:||50,8 knots, fuel consumption 1,53 L/Nm|
|Cruising speed:||45 knots, fuel consumption 1,28 L/Nm|
|Cruising speed:||40 knots, fuel consumption 1,19 L/Nm|
|Economy speed:||35 knots, fuel consumption 1,05 L/N|
|Weight 2: 3700 kg = normally equipped boat, fuel tank half full (200 litres) and 7 persons|
|Top speed:||49,7 knots, fuel consumption 1,56 L/Nm|
|Cruising speed:||44 knots, fuel consumption 1,31 L/Nm|
|Cruising speed:||40 knots, fuel consumption 1,22 L/Nm|
|Economy speed:||34 knots, fuel consumption 1,08 L/Nm|
(Ruptech 32 is expected to have a dry weight of 2800 kg with limited equipment and 3000 kg normally equipped.)
Ruptech 32 gives a safe and comfortable impression under all driving conditions. Takes sharp turns in high speeds without any excitement. Good acceleration without noticeable planing threshold. The trim angle during acceleration and running is perfect regardless if the boat is bow or stern heavy.
The results show that the hull is 12% more efficient than earlier stepped hulls. The speed difference between all rpm’s is only 1 knot regardless of how we distribute the weight onboard. The fuel consumption is more than satisfactory, approximately 1 l/Nm in economy speeds around 34-35 knots. It is our impression that the designer Ocke Mannerfelt has designed his maybe best hull ever!
The colour scheme for Ruptech 32 is now finalized
In cooperation with The Scandinavian Colour Institute (www.ncscolour.com) we have now developed the colour schemes for Ruptech 32.
Hull and cabin will be available in three standard colours, dark grey, grey beige and white, all with external details contrasted in a black grey colour. All colours in a warm tone.
The interior will be available in a number of different colour and material combinations. All matching the external colour scheme.
Please mail or give us a call if you want to know more or come by and “touch and feel”.
Rupert 50 Wheel House is now tested with very good results
With 2000 litres in the diesel and water tanks, five persons and a lot of equipment onboard, a total weight of 12 tons, a top speed of 44,7 knots was reached!
Impressively low noise level
It is almost totally silent in the wheelhouse, only 71 decibel in 45 knots.
Impressing sea keeping
The 24-degree deep V-hull is handling the rough and choppy sea very smoothly and exact.
Right now the Rupert 50 is on its first work mission in the Baltic Sea
