Rosborough Boats has been a builder of custom and semi-custom vessels meeting the needs of the professional marine community in a variety of sectors for 59 years. Established in 1955 by James D. Rosborough, Rosborough boats has evolved from designing and building fully custom wooden sailing yachts, through pleasure and commercial boats to the current signature offerings of the RFV HammerHead and Rough Water™ Rigid Hull Inflatable lines.
In 2000, Rosborough began developing a RHIB that would have greater sea keeping abilities, larger personnel carrying capacity, and higher speeds in harsh conditions. In 2003, the Rough Water™ 9.11, Rosborough Boats developed the 8.50, 7.90 and 6.70.
Rosborough’s portfolio also includes the RFV HammerHead available from 22 to 28 feet. Rough Water™ RHIBs are presently in service with Canadian Federal, Provincial, and Municipal agencies, American State agencies, and in Canadian and UK Private Sectors.
They provide Policing/Patroling, Search & Rescue, Conservation, Protection, Ambulance, Oil Platform Assistance, Survival Training and General Work Boat services. Rosborough Boats is also a YANMAR parts, service, and re-power provider serving Halifax and surrounding area. Rosborough’s YANMAR technician can get parts for most engines, re-power your craft, and provide mobile service.
