We received a press release from Enigma Powerboats. It is a new British Powerboat Manufacturer. The renderings show a good-looking RIB. You’ll find the specs below.
The hull design with a triple ventilated step was created by naval architect Adam Younger. We all know then that it’s going to be a fast RIB with excellent behaviour. Petter Martens of Beserk Designs also joined the team for delivering a great RIB design. Both are members of RIBs ONLY.
So for their first RIB it looks very promising indeed.
Enigma launches a 38ft Super-RIB
After an extensive design and build programme, Enigma Powerboats Ltd. has launched its debut vessel, the Enigma 38. The first model has been produced as an open day boat, but the platform has been designed to be modular, with various configurations available.
“With the launch of the Enigma 38. we are moving Rigid Inflatable Boat design to a new level, with a huge focus on style. safety and usability. Inspired by super car aesthetics and quality, we have pushed beyond the boundaries of traditional super-rib design in all areas.
The Enigma 38 utilises an expansive 3.4m beam. allowing a diverse range of applications for a CAT-B offshore powerboat. capable of over 100mph. We are very excited to finally unveil the Enigma 38 and will shortly be commencing sea trial demonstrations.”- Debbie Hood, CEO
This new 2023 model is the mid-sized family rib from Highfield. It has plenty of space and is lightweight to handle because recyclable aluminium is the main ingredient of this rigid inflatable boat (RIB).
