Why the world’s toughest rib?

The durability of our boats is one of the most important things for us. Our RIBs are made of the best materials available and therefore can withstand a harsh working environment. For the hull we use a combination of polyester and vinyl ester to get the strongest and lightest boats. For the tubes we are using the best PU (Polyurethane) fabric available.
