A story of Navigator Inflatable Boats
Navigator inflatable boats are military-style and quality masterpieces. Navigator boat models for more than 15 years are popular with lovers of fishing and water recreation for high quality and reliability.
Today Navigator has a variety of more than 50 various products, mainly inflatable boats and RIBs. Using modern design ideas combined with high-tech manufacturing allows us to have excellent performance and durability characteristics. Navigator boats have an original shape, high-quality standards and something more than just a regular inflatable boat brand – we care about our customers and strive to empower those who love being on the water.
Navigator boats have multiple European certificates and were battle-tested for more than a decade.
- Original designs of cylinders
- The latest joining technology – the method of “heat welding”
- Minimum number of connecting seams
- Increased sealing and reliability of cylinders
- Improved ride quality thanks to hydrodynamic contours.
- 100% quality control at each technological stage
- Team of professionals
Our models are optimized for the BEST performance, just like most recent mobile devices designed to achieve an optimal output. We use marine-grade plywood, covered with additional waterproof varnish layers, instead of weighty aluminum floors, which oxidize relatively quickly. This means you can take more weight on board, and it is easier to install the boat and transport it! Black boats are not very practical for everyday fishing needs. As such, we use alternative colours to preserve the lifetime of the boat and save you from burns on a sunny day.
To balance between performance and durability, we’ve chosen a five-layer PVC boat fabric with a density of 850 g/m2 – 1100 g/m2 (certified PVC manufacturers ISO 9001). Hot air welding technology is used to connect straight and circular seams of inflatable balloons. Welds – reliable, monolithic, withstand increased loads and are resistant to temperature extremes. The original design of the cylinders improves the contours of the vessels in terms of their seaworthiness and safety.
All of our models have a very important and unique construction characteristic, namely narrowing the diameter of the tubes closer to the nose. Besides a beautiful and exquisite appearance, such structure combined with a smoothly lifted fore body makes the dinghy well-navigable, capable of entering the gliding mode with the minimum capacity motors. Thus, it allows our customers to save both on motors and the consumed vessel fuel.
Unique welding techniques allow us to join not only straight parts but also the tank arches. It significantly expands the possibilities of the designers while creating new models and allows a higher degree of optimization for the vessel lines, and increases the navigability and safety of the boat. Besides, such technology makes the seams elastic and solid, providing an almost solid dinghy structure.
Our production was amongst the first in the inflatable boat industry to master and apply the technology of welding the inter-tank partition into the tank corps and to reduce the number of the external ring seams located from the dinghy stern to its forebody. Such a solution allowed decreasing the water-resistance upon entry of the dinghy into the gliding mode and increasing the structure reliability and solidity.
