Vectis delivers Arctic 28 Wheelhouse RIB project

When the new owner of a VT Halmatic Arctic 28 RIB wanted an enclosed wheelhouse designed and installed he approached Vectis for the job. Vectis has first hand experience of the Arctic RIBs from VT Halmatic and from providing technical support to the MOD's Arctic fleet over the last few years. The aluminium wheelhouse was designed and supplied by Vectis as a turn-key project for the boat's new owner.
