SAFE, BUOYANT, AND BALANCED
The buoyancy tubes of Zodiac boats have several compartments, separated by waterproof partitions. Thanks to these air reserves, the boat maintains its ability to float and stay conceptually unsinkable when fully loaded, even with multiple deflated compartments. Zodiacs Rib are also extremely stable, as the buoyancy is distributed on all sides and a deep V hull provides a low center of gravity. All these features contribute to easy operation and a superior standard of safety.
Our removable tube system is exclusively unique to Zodiac RIBs. Our easy to install removable tubes make storage easy, allowing you to deflate or remove the tubes to get into tight spots or store tubes in a separate location. This system also allows for easy tube maintenance, as well as the possibility of visual upgrades after years of use without replacing your entire boat.
EASY TOWING AND AFFORDABLE FUELING
The Lightweight hull and inflatable tube on our Rib Boats create a watercraft that is both easy to tow and to fuel. Zodiac Ribs can be pulled with a standard-size vehicle, no expensive towing trucks needed. Less weight also means less fuel consumption from your towing vehicle and your boat engine, saving you money and allowing for more fun!
Docking or loading a boat can be stressful and bothersome. However, Zodiac Ribs make it easy! The Rib on our boats is shock-absorbing and nearly indestructible, acting as a worry-free fender that won’t slip out of place or take up tons of valuable storage space. With a Zodiac Rib, there is no need to rush to dislodge bulky bumpers from storage or worry about damage when you lightly tap a dock or neighboring boat in a harbor.
HIGHEST RESALE VALUE RIB
With a long history of quality, dependability, and versatility, it’s no wonder that a Zodiac RIB has the highest resale value out of all inflatable boats currently on the market. Built with superior, industrial-strength materials, our boats and tubes are made to last. Our replaceable tube system also allows you to easily and affordably change the style of your boat 30 years down the road, contributing to its long-lasting value and flexibility. Additionally, the Zodiac Nautic brand itself has become synonymous with inflatable boats, making it the most recognizable RIB brand in the world.
The inflated tubes of Zodiac Ribs cause them to sit higher in the water and maintain an extreme level of buoyancy. This effectively reduces the drag of the boat and strain on the engine while the deep “V” shaped hull helps to seamlessly cut through rough water. All these elements reduce the amount of fuel and horsepower it takes to power a Zodiac Rib, effectively saving you money.
2X PASSENGER CAPACITY AND STORAGE
Zodiacs have an incredible load-bearing capacity due to their exceptional buoyancy and area-below-water ratio. This allows for double the capacity of passengers legally permitted on a fiberglass hull boat of the same size. With all those passengers, we made sure to provide lots of storage space in our boats for every cooler, tackle box, tow rope and lifejacket you may need for your water-bound adventures.
