RIB – high-speed boats consisting of a rigid ungainly frame-forming bottom and inflatable multi-chamber PVC tubes.
The rigidity of the frame allows you to give the bottom a clear outline, which provides the keel the most effective angle. On boats with an inflatable or footling floor. it is simply impossible to achieve this, therefore RIBs are many times superior to conventional PVC boats in terms of stability, speed, comfort for passengers and the ability to get on the glide with less effort. Inflatable sides allow Rib to moor anywhere unlike boats with rigid sides. They consist of several inflatable balloons, which guarantees almost complete unsinkability of the watercraft. Therefore, most rescue operations and interceptions at sea take place with their participation. They are actively used by the military and rescuers.
The tubes are made of PVC density 1100 g/m² (thickness 0.9 mm).
The bottom can be made in 2 versions: fiberglass or aluminum.
