RIB GRAND Golden Line G850

With a length of 8.50 meters, the GRAND Golden G850 is a RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) suitable for both maritime tourism and for short or long walks on the sea, always with the design and quality that characterize the models of the Golden series. The #inflatable #GRAND have won the trust of the Greek market with the support of the Greek Leadmar dealership. They are distinguished for their excellent aesthetics, airworthiness, finish and ergonomics.

The new GRAND G850 is a luxurious, large and spacious RIB that gives the feeling of being bigger than its real measures when you are inside.

The test boat wore a pair of black Mercury 200 Hp V6 black where it perfectly matched the overall black look.

The beautiful and balanced lines of the G850 give nobility and finesse to the whole deck. Designed with a Mediterranean layout, a large sundeck at the bow, and a comfortable P-shaped sofa at the stern.

In conclusion, the new G850 is a worthy successor to the Golden series, a RIB that does not go unnoticed, combining luxury and design. It is a boat with great comforts, finish, good cruising and unparalleled aesthetics, ideal for short or long walks with friends or family.
