Check out this custom-built 10m Ribcraft belonging to everyone’s favourite TV personality and extreme survivalist
— Bear Grylls.

Grylls took possession of this boat at the European RIBEX 2010 rigid inflatable boats show in May this year.

According to a Haines Suzuki media release the vessel is a custom-built 10m model built to Bear’s personal specifications, and is the largest ever made by UK-boatbuilder Ribquest.

The boat is named Shara after Bear’s wife and features a self-righting A-frame, Simrad electronics, shock-mitigating seats, a large stowage locker beneath the seats ahead of the console, and plenty more. It’s powered by twin-Suzuki DF300 outboards.

Greg Haines from Haines Suzuki Marine (Australia and New Zealand) said: "It’s a testament to the reputation of Suzuki Marine that a high profile adventurer like Bear Grylls has chosen Suzuki power for his personal boat."
