Why Buy a RIB?
Traditionally, larger rigid hull inflatable craft (RIB/RHIB) have been almost exclusively reserved for patrol, dive and rescue use, due to their somewhat industrial look and layout.
Such operators favour RIB’s due to a number of beneficial characteristics that can make for an enjoyable, safe and comfortable day or weekend on the water for recreational boaties as well.
The presence of tubes/pontoons make these craft exceptionally stable, meaning diving, fishing and watersports are both safe and practical.
RIB’s also boast an extremely large load carrying capacity and sport a far greater deadrise angle than conventional monohulls, meaning great rough water performance for those occasions when the weather catches you unexpectedly.
For the novice, large diameter tubes also provide great protection when coming alongside other craft or when docking, meaning no more expensive gel coat scratches or dents.
