18ft RIB

BRIEF

This 18FT RIB will for sure put a smile on your face. With a 100HP Honda 4-cycle engine it is fuel efficient, quite, but scoot right along at over 40 mph when you give it full power. 

the deck on the boat is covered with a teak style soft foam called Aquatrac. It is more durable than most thanks to a PVC top coat on the foam itself. This boat is also fitted with a 5" GPS screen tied to the engine via a NMEA 2000 dataport. That allows you to see all the engine information on the screen itself. Including current fuel burn and fuel tank capacity. This boat also has a stereo and VHF radio. 

This boat was also powder coated with polyethylene paint for its superior durability and extremely strong bond to the aluminum. 

The collar on that the boat is the largest in its class at 22" diameter. This allows us to raise the deck height in that boat making it a true self-bailing boat. Water in water out in our principle. 

Probably the most important feature on the boat is the hybrid collar system. This incorporates our 80% Foam / 20% Air collar. It has the look and feel of a true inflatable boat collar but in the case of a catastrophic event has a foam core, to provide flotation at all times. 

These were build as show boats for the winter boat show season but are available right now for deposit.

Boat Features

FAST Closed Cell Foam Buoyancy Stabilizers: The FAST collar system provides superior buoyancy, unparalleled stability and maximum collision protection in a cutting edge, heavy duty package that allows your boat to operate  in the toughest conditions of its class. Manufactured with industry leading equipment and techniques, polyurethane covered foam collars provide a light weight, stable, and seaworthy ride. Used in conjunction with our collar systems our decks are water tight and self bailing which allow them to quickly evacuate any water that may enter the boat. Under the self bailing decks is additional polyethylene foam to achieve maximum flotation and to provide sound deadening for a quieter ride. 

As a industry leader, FAST collar systems on our RIB's are designed with a fully enclosed/removable air bladder inside the collar between the outer membrane and polyethylene foam. This air bladder can be built to any size, allowing for different ratios of air to foam in the collar. The air bladder can be removed and replaced in minutes once the zipper that runs full length of the collar is unzipped. This allows the removal and replacement of the air bladder without ever having to remove the collar from the boat. 

Hull Scantling StructureThe boats structure is designed with toughness in mind. Using the latest in computer aided design software and vessel computation analysis, our engineering team is leading the industry with modern vessel design. All hull and superstructure components are cut with a computer controlled (CNC) router. The structure of our boats are designed using the marine industry rules and regulations published by LLoyd's Register and ISO.

Performance FinsWith our performance fins, located below the collar, the boat stays flat in the corners and provides unmatched performance while greatly reducing heal. 

ABYC Rigging ComplianceWe are dedicated to using ABYC rules and regulations during the design and manufacturing of our boats.
