Scorpion Stealth RIB Always Great Performance

Scorpion Stealth RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat)

The Scorpion Stealth RIB is built on the same hull as the Strike model, with superb performance.

It’s an older video (2012) but it says a lot of the famous British brand. The model is no longer available though. The current Serket model is most similar, in my opinion.

This video shows the awesome features of the RIB – a particularly spacious design with a wide back bench seat, plenty of storage space in a walk-in locker, and an incredibly comfortable sun bed platform – perfect for an unforgettable experience at sea!

In contrast to the Strike model this Scorpion Stealth is quite different due to its softer setup and a full-length bow tube.

This model has a useful storage section on the front deck plus you can turn it into a sun bed for an added relaxation spot.

The RIB has two jockey seats fitted as a standard, making it okay for a comfortable ride.

I can imagine you would like to see more videos of this brand. Go for it!

Club del Gommone Magnificent Winter RIB Run

On 9 February 2023, members of the Club del Gommone held a winter RIB run on the beautiful Lake Como in Italy to open the season.

This 52nd edition of the Invernale started this year from Vercurago at the Cantiere Bolis on Lake Garlate.

After leaving the boatyard, the group sailed north to exit Lake Garlate and, after a short stretch of the River Adda, entered Lake Como just in front of the city of Lecco.

From there, they went up the lake for about fifteen miles, passing Abbadia Lariana, Mandello, and heading for Punta Spartivento di Bellagio, recognizable by the cliff that separates the lake into two branches.

Near the cliff, as is tradition, they toasted with an auspicious aperitif to start the season.

After the aperitif in the water, they returned to Vercurago (around 14:00-14:30) for an additional aperitif, which by then will have become a snack, at the Bar Restaurant ‘Il Molo’ opposite the boatyard for the 2022 edition.

There was no participation fee.

As a good organiser some agreements were made:

  • On Lake Garlate, you may not exceed a speed of 10 knots.
  • Under the bridges along the stretch of river connecting the two lakes, you must not exceed 5 knots
  • On Lake Como, you cannot exceed 22 knots.
  • The boatyard has fuel.
  • Navigation communications channel 73.

Their other RIB Raids are impressive as well.
