Twisted Marine acquires Scorpion RIBs

Twisted Marine, the provider of leisure marine services, has acquired boat builder Scorpion RIBs.

Production on new builds of Twisted Scorpions will begin immediately and the company is also offering ‘refreshes’ for anyone with an older model.

Twisted Marine offers custom boat building and refits / upgrades, alongside maintenance and repairs, engineering, GRP and shipwright services from their bases in Salcombe and Brighton.

Founder Charles Fawcett spent two decades growing Twisted Automotive into a worldwide brand and renowned automotive engineering business, before purchasing a marine engineering business in Salcombe in 2021 with Jake Cronk, which was rebranded Twisted Marine. In August 2022, Twisted Marine acquired Brighton-based marine engineering business, West Marine Services Limited. Their current models includes the R, S and T-47 series.

Jake Cronk, Managing Director at Twisted Marine, said:

Scorpion RIBs manufactures RIBs out of its facility in Lymington, Hampshire. The company created a new hull design to realise the full potential of the Rigid Inflatable Boat over 20 years ago, leading to the highest levels of safety and class leading performance, as well as fuel efficiency.

The three models in the current range are the Serket at 2.75m, Sting at 3.1m and the Silurian at 3.25m, and are available with a range of power options, including inboard, outboard and waterjet.

Twisted says the entire team is committed to continuing the legacy of Scorpion, ensuring that the brand’s tradition of excellence and innovation endures well beyond boat production, and Lymington will become the UK HQ for all Twisted new builds.

Cronk concluded:
