The RIB, also known as an RHIB (Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat), is famous for its high performance and capacity. The group of Atlantic college students in Sought Wales with Admiral Desmond Hoare, as the head of the school, made the boat in 1964. It immediately gained popularity through its strongness and reliable design.
RIB’s multipurpose design attracts fishermen, hunters, explorers, coast guards, used in life rescue operations and remains the best choice for the military and navy. The boat consists of rigid hull bottom joined to side-forming tubes, inflated with high-pressure air for greater rigidity. Tubes can be made out of Hypalon, Polyvinyl Chloride or Polyurethane. RIB is suitable for almost any type of water, very compact and lightweight.
The Advantages of Rigid Inflatable Boats
There’s really a lot to consider if talking about the advantages of rigid hull inflatable boats. These boats are very simple to transport, use and store through simple construction and lightweight materials. They are very reliable and can last up to 20 years or more, depending on the quality of assembly and fabric. It is not to mention the economically advantageous factors (thanks to rigid hull inflatable boat weight) such as higher engine performance with lower horsepower. These inflatable boats can deliver you places where other motorboats can’t get, for example, if you need to go through shallow water.
