This blog is devoted to the Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB). Why RIBs?
PASSION FOR RIBs
I’ve always been fascinated by the Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB). Their form, style, lay-out, toughness, seaworthiness and sportive way of navigating are the unquestionable advantages you’ll rarely find combined in another type of boat.
TYPE OF RIBs
This type of boat is also known as the 4 x 4 of the sea. Rescue services, military, police, port staff often use RIBs because of their excellent behavior, seaworthiness and solidity. Other RIBs are fitted for pleasure, fishing and racing. A RIB is indeed a very special type of motorboat. Know what to look for when buying a RIB.

For the last few days the Rafnar 1100 sale in Greece has been covered by the Icelandic, Greek and international media. We want to thank everyone for their interest in our unique boat design. We still have much to show but we like to let our boats do most of the talking. We are happy to hear that the sea trials are going great, but mostly we are happy to hear that the crews are loving the boats. That is what Rafnar is all about.
