Thriving for over 30 years, our truly British-built RIBs are designed and handcrafted on the beautiful Dorset coast in Christchurch by our extraordinary team.

We pride ourselves upon our unique craftmanship, with each member of our passionate team dedicated to ensuring that every Cobra RIBs product is produced to the finest standards.

With our fully-customisable RIBs, each one takes us on a new journey.

We’re always on the lookout for exceptional people to come on board.

Over the years, the skilled and dedicated team at Cobra RIBs have welcomed aboard some fantastically gifted young adults – and now we’d love to welcome you on board, too. We’re offering exciting apprenticeship opportunities to young adults who are willing to learn and grow as part of a highly respected local company.
These positions will see you complete the Standards in Production and Marine Electrics or Marine Engineering or Boat Building courses. As an apprentice with Cobra RIBs, you will ‘earn as you learn’, with competitive rates of pay, as well as receiving “Standards” qualifications with one of the marine industry’s most highly respected boat builders.
We will be holding a fact-finding open day (by appointment only) to show interested candidates around our workshop and facilities. Over the course of 2-3 hours, we’ll assess your capabilities through some tasks and tests. We’ll then close your time with us with an informal interview to find out a bit more about you and your interest in the marine industry.
If you think you have the enthusiasm, drive and commitment to complete a 3-4 year apprenticeship, and would like the opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills in a top-quality environment here at Cobra RIBs, then please get in touch.
In the first instance, please provide your CV and covering letter here.
We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you onboard. Good Luck!
