Why Choose a Rigid Inflatable Boat?

RIBs (Rigid Inflatable Boats) are constructed with a conventional planning hull manufactured out of fiber-glass with an inflatable collar for increased buoyancy and stability. The collar (or TUBE) acts as a shock absorber ensuring that the craft has unparalleled seaworthiness, safety and stability. RIBs are used around the world by Recreational, Professional, Rescue and Military users.

10 Good Reasons to Own an Ocean Craft Marine…
