Thursday June 30 2022 was a day of celebration for Rafnar Hellas in Greece.

Back to Greece and check out the images below.
“From early in the morning at the Olympic Marine of Lavrio, we honored the revolutionary RAFNAR 1200 in all its versions, with the powerful Yamaha outboard engines, but of course also the people and companies who made with their love and support, another LEGENDS event reality.
The title in the top left corner originally said “in extreme conditions”. I think this is such a context. Therefore I changed it to “in rough conditions”. No offense, Rafnar Netherlands. Still it proofs Rafnars unbelievable capabilities.
During the severe storms Eunice, Dudley and Franklin in February 2022, this video of a test drive to experienced RIB drivers in the Rafnar 1100 was shot.
Its a RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) for professional, harbour, emergency, military and other services related to providing safety at sea.
With strong gusts up to 140 km/h, a Code Red weather alarm was applied for the coastal regions in The Netherlands, and so IJmuiden.
Waves up to about 4 meters high rolled into the IJmuiden harbour from the North Sea. Powered by 3 Mercury outboards of 350 HP each, the Rafnar 1100 was fiercely put to the test.

The International Workboat Show in New Orleans is currently underway. To all our friends attending, we want to invite you to come visit Rafnar at the Fairlead booth(Booth 763).
See what all the fuss is about, and let us show you why our vessels offer unrivalled performance and seakeeping. Our 11-meter RIB is designed for a wide variety of workboat and tactical applications, so make sure your next vessel is a Rafnar!
Rigid inflatable boats have become, over the last couple of years, the preferred choice not only for marine professionals but also for those that take boating as a leisure activity. There are a plethora of reasons for this; the boat comes with a myriad of benefits.
For many years now I own a single outboard RIB. As a journalist I sailed many motor boats and RIBs. I aways had the most fun in RIBs. The feeling of “flying” over the waves is really extraordinary! It’s a kick I can’t get enough of.
That being said, one cannot help but inquire why these Rigid Inflatable boats, ostensibly referred to by their abbreviation “RIBs”, as expensive. They cost more than the “ordinary” boat, but why exactly is that. The answer to this question can be found in the nuances of the RIBs, from the construction to their operations.
