(RHIB : Rigid-hulled inflatable boat)
• A TRUE 4×4 OF THE SEA •
Made with an inflatable buoyancy tube and a rigid hull, these boats combine the advantages of traditional inflatable boats – security, stability, portability, and ease of use – with those of rigid-hulled boats – comfort, agility and speed.
True ocean adventurers, Zodiac boats have a spectacular reputation with professionals and amateur boaters alike, who rely on their exceptional marine qualities and all-time practicality.
• MORE “SEA-CENTERED” •
It’s unique combination of a very low center of gravity, a deep-V hull and added stabilization of the tubes which gives the rigidhulled inflatable speed and sea-crossing capacities without compromising comfort or safety.
Trying a Zodiac boat means discovering a new world of performance.
• MORE CAPACITY •
You counted right! There are 12 football players onboard this Zodiac boat. The Zodiac boat has an exceptional weight / area-below-water ratio, giving the boat a load-bearing capacity such that it can carry considerable loads: ideal for a day trip with friends and family in complete safety.
The bouyancy is distributed on the sides, the center of gravity is very low: all this guarantees stability such that the Zodiac boats are almost impossible to capsize when loaded!
The buoyancy tubes of Zodiac boats have several compartments, separated by waterproof partitions. Thanks to its important air reserves, the boat keeps its ability to float and stays conceptually unsinkable when fully loaded, even with a deflated compartment.
• MORE PRACTICAL •
How easy it is to launch and beach! The low weight of Zodiac boats allows a regular vehicle to launch it in the water easily. Without need for a mooring, the rigid-hulled inflatable is both economical and practical.
SOFT SIDED FENDERING
The buoyancy tubes are permanent fenders that natuarlly act as a shock absorber. When maneuvering, the boat will bounce without damage if it happens to lightly tap a dock or neighboring boat in the harbor.
