WHY CHOOSE RIB BOAT with Hypalon Neoprene boards?
RIB (Rigid Inflatable Bord) construction is not unfamiliar for water sports lovers, but is still among the newest and most successful innovations in vessels manufacturing. Presence of this class boats is the answer to the logical increase of requirements of owners of inflatable boats. Search for more power, stability and comfort forces the manufacturers to combine inflatable bards with hard bottom and hull. Lightweight, robust and easy for exploitation, these boats provide everything necessary for hobby and recreation (all day cruise, fishing and water sports) but and for professional activities (navy, coast guard, fire safety, etc.)
Manufacturing of such boat with Hypalon Neoprene boards is most expensive among others and therefore manufacturers usually combine the quality materials with wide range of standard and optional equipment. Specific for this class boats are: elegant design, multichamber inflatable boards, deep V-form double hull, comfort deck with console and seats, built-in fuel tank, deck shower, side and aft decks for swimming, refrigerator, inox rollbar, fishhook stands, combined handles, foldable knechts.
Material that is used for the inflatable boards Hypalon Neoprene is possible of best quality, well renowned and widely used where high endurance and exploitation durability are required (cleaning of petrol leaks, ship supply, port and airport equipment, naval purposes, etc.). Main features of Hypalon Neoprene that make it better than other fabrics are:
- durability of oil and fuel: you should not worry when there is fuel leakage or swim in polluted waters, just wipe dirty areas;
- Overheating durability: in laboratory conditions Hypalon Neprene was tested at 190 0C without showing any structural or feasible deformations. Even lighted cigarette does not leave any stains from burning, melting and anything else.
-Durability when rubbing: during the tests Hypalon Neoprene resists 3 times more than the standard fabrics;
-UV resistance: RIB Boats are design for yearly exploitation and exposal to sun. Their fabrics will not melt o burn even if you leave it in the water for the whole summer.
-mechanical resistance of high load and impact
As a result you posses boat that offers you full comfort for your recreation and provides you with unlimited possibilities for comfort and smooth practicing of all kinds of water fun: long trips on high or low speed, scuba diving, fishing, picnics of secret places, waterskiing, etc.
In the mean time the design and construction of the RIB boats assure you:
SECURITY: actually, boats from that class cannot sink. Multichamber inflatable boards assure excellent sailing and double fiberglass hull, constructed with excellent deck draining assures you minimal damages even when hitting underwater obstacles with high speed. Additionally, boards are protected with fabrics that secure key areas from impact, torn, rubbing and other exploitation risks.
SAFETY: except for being unsinkable, RIB boats are designed in each small detail that might lead to hurt or injury: comfortable remote control of the motor, foldable knechts, oval edges, many handles and grips on the hull and console; automatic bilge pump; possibility for built-in mounting of all navigational tools.
STABILITY: The design of RIB boats lets you use power motors for higher speed. Not by incident these boats are called “motorcycles on water”. Load distribution, built-in fuel tank, distribution of seats and side boards under the water line assure stability and ease of control at any speed and weather conditions. Wide inflatable boards assure buoyancy for easier navigation and the hard V-form hull-maneuvering and agility at each speed.
COMFORT: RIB boards offer lots of space. Even in the smallest models you will not feel lack of free place. In the mean time in the standard and optional equipment are included deck shower with fresh water, cushioned seats, foldable ladder, coolbox, navigation lights and additional options your may get Biminis, storage cover, trailer, full set of navigation tools.
EASY EXPLOITATION: RIB does not require sophisticated exploitation and expensive maintenance materials. You may leave your boat for the whole year in the port exposed to the direct sunlight. Shorter models may be transported with trailer and may float without use of helling. In the mean time for their storage is needed small part of your garage or parking lot as the fabrics can resist heavy weather conditions and after deflation of boars your boat will minimize its dimensions significantly.
LONG LIFE: with simple maintenance and storage, your RIB manufactured with Hypalon Neoprene will be your friend for decades. Even today some of the first manufactured with fabric boats are in exploitation. Hypalon Neoprene is glued at ambient temperatures with standard two component epoxy glue. No thermo pressure is necessary as with PVC fabrics. This guarantees you that every next repair will be with factory quality.
