Cadet Compact

A RIB in a bag

Thanks to its fold-down rear transom – exclusive to ZODIAC® – the boat takes up very little space and can be easily stored in the specially designed bag.

This bag, with integrated handles, allows you to carry your boat in the simplest possible way – on the roof of your car or in a large boot. Setting up the boat is extremely fast: just inflate it, fit the oars and launch it!

RIMTEC (Reinforced Injection Molding Technology) makes it easy and provides excellent handling on the water. The wide hollow interior allows a perfectly ergonomic seating position while also improving safety.

    I have purchased three zodiacs of the last 20 years. Two of these were Zodiac Zooms models, this by far is a far superior model. The rigid rib floor takes all the worries about landing boat on rocky beaches/shores. There is no floor flex when planning. Spend the extra money its worth it
