This 9m Rigid Inflatable was custom designed for a clients’ requirement to handle large 3m diameter marker buoys and ground tackle.
o Provide specific anchor handling machinery
o Optimise the space onboard the vessel to perform its specific role
o Provide protection for the crew from the elements
Designed for the RIB’s hull to be constructed from marine grade aluminium, with inflatable tubes, the vessel measures 9.30 metres in length overall, with a beam of 2.80 metres, and has a draught of 0.50 metres. The aluminium floor is a highly abrasion resistant, suited for demanding applications.
The helm is at the rear of the craft with a high degree of all round visibility, with the open canopy and large forward deck providing plenty of room for transport of marker buoys and anchors. The lower freeboard allows ready access to equipment and personnel in the water.
Naval Architecture and Marine Solutions experience in developing customised solutions to specific clients’ requirements enabled a workable solution to the clients’ needs. We can design a rigid inflatable to a specification to meet your needs, including tender vessels, tourist shuttles and dive operators.
