Open 5.5

An adventurer style with sleek lines, a perfectly ergonomic cockpit, an exceptional reinforced deep-V hull offering control and stability through hazardous and rough seas, OPEN 5.5 is the SUV of the seas.

As a true Swiss Army knife, this cross-over offers an exceptional modularity and is at ease with any type of activity. The compartments on the deck will welcome the gear for all your water-based hobbies, and can be converted into comfortable seats for a family day-out or into an empty space for fishing trips with friends. The Open 5.5 is suitable for towing on any road, and is perfectly mobile to explore new places. Last but not least, the work on design and its style evolution definitely marks the advent of the new generation of the Pro Open range from Zodiac Nautic.

    5 out of 5

    I had a chance to demo the Open 5.5 with a variety of power options at the Demo Days in Charleston, SC. Being an avid boater, and owned several Grady Whites, and Boston Whalers, I was impressed by the quality and ride. There was more storage and comfortable seating then expected, This being my first time in a RIB, the ride quality exceeded my expectations, riding like a much larger boat. The hull has a deeper V than most larger boats, while the tubes provide stability at rest and a shock absorber effect when going over waves. With this RIB you could enjoy the seakeeping of a larger boat, while maintaining the fuel efficiency, and towability of a smaller vessel. If you want a boat that tows like a 15′ boat, with great fuel efficiency, but can handle rough water like a 21′ boat, you need to test out the Open 5.5 from Zodiac.
