 “Red Bay Boats is an outstanding example of a local business, which since its foundation in 1977 has developed into a world leader of high quality boat manufacture.    The new Stormforce 1650 is the largest vessel in their range and has been entirely developed and manufactured over the past year in their Cushendall workshop”

 “The new boat is aimed at a commercial market and has been developed to cater for the needs of ports, harbours and the offshore renewable industry. The company anticipate that they will sell this vessel globally from their Cushendall base. The boat has the potential to greatly enhance our tourism industry particularly in terms of the links between the Glens of Antrim and the Western Isles of Scotland. It can also help improve Search and Rescue resources around our shores”
