The brand AB Inflatables produces outboard Boats and rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs).

The founder of AB Inflatables, Ivor Heyer, is a second generation ship. His father Ulrich founded Lanchas Venezolanos Shipyard in 1972, which built aluminium boats under an American license and was quite successful. More than 90% of the small ships (at that time) in Venezuela were made by Ulrich.
In the 80's Ivor joined the work, which in 1996 united Lanchas with Italian Battelli in AB Marine Group. Later a new brand was launched - AB Inflatables. Meanwhile, the economic situation in Venezuela was deteriorating, and the company's management decided to move production to another country. The choice fell on Colombia, where by 2009 a new plant was launched.
Just two employees went to open a factory in Colombia with Ivor. They managed to build a new facility from scratch and start producing boats. The team chose the large industrial city of Barranquilla for the yard, where they launched production to modern international standards.
The shipyard is a rare holder of all three industry certificates (NMMA, CE and ISO 9001), which guarantees the high quality of its boats.
