Category Description

The RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) is a special type of small speed boats, whose hull is fibreglass or aluminium and has volumetric cylinders consisting of several sections around its perimeter. The main function of such a "belt" is to ensure unsinkability of the vessel, and, as a rule, cylinders are filled with air, though in some cases it is replaced by foam material. Another important task of the cylinders is to work as a private beam, which, among other things, can be moved.

Thanks to these two properties and the high practicality of the boat "rib" has taken an important place in rescue and power structures, where hard and unpredictable mooring in difficult conditions is constantly required.

Although most RIB boats are designed for one, two or even three outboard motors, a number of boats are equipped with stationary motors and water cannons. Due to their low weight, RIBs are often converted into racing boats and are also used as easy to operate tenders. The range of RIB boats is very large: from tiny folding 3-meter models to 20-meter monsters capable of taking on board up to 40 people.
