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.

The video of the first ride by the satisfied client speaks for itself.
It is definitely a special experience to travel with Genesis 31, whose hull can handle the waves wonderful while keeping a perfectly straight ride attitude ensuring excellent field of vision to the pilot even when he is driving while sitting.
