My Passion for the Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB)

I’ve always been fascinated by the Rigid Inflatable Boat. Their form, style, lay-out, toughness, seaworthiness, safety and sportive way of navigating are the unquestionable advantages you’ll rarely find combined in any other type of boat.

What’s a RIB

As one of their most popular offerings, the TopLine collection caters to individuals who relish the ultimate in leisure and opulence.

The company also offers these models: Proline, Sportline, Open, Protender en Tender.

I’ve dedicated earlier a post to the Egypt based Tiger Marine shipyard.

SEAFIGHTER Shadow 36 – Twin 4.2 L 300 hp Yamahas

Exceptional SEAFIGHTER Shadow 36

Our friends at Greek based E-Ribbing team recently conducted a full-day sea trial on the Shadow 36, and it left them thoroughly impressed.

“This exceptional setup brought smiles to our faces. The Shadow 36 demonstrated remarkable flexibility, precise directionality, and an exceptionally smooth ride.

Notably, this trial marked the debut of the six-cylinder 300hp Yamaha engines on the vessel’s transom, complemented by the ECO Enertia propellers.

This combination delivered outstanding accelerations and impressive traction across the entire rpm spectrum, making it truly enviable.”
