Rafnar 1100 RIB Test Drive in Rough Conditions

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.

Icelandic Winter in the Comforts of a Rafnar 1100 Professional RIB

A day out last winter, RVK forecast was -7 Celsius and snowing, sunrise at 11:00, sunset at 15:30.

There is nothing quite like the Icelandic winter.

Often reminiscent of the Icelandic summer, the choice to live and work here is rarely taken because of our sunny beaches.

Life here has adapted to strong winds, unpredictable weather and the occasional summer snow. Just like the other inhabitants of this island, Rafnar adapted and made the best out of it.

Necessity is the mother of invention, so through more than a decade of R&D, Rafnar has created a boat that is built for the worst conditions and because of that, is ideal for all conditions.

Why a Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) is Quite Expensive

Why a Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) is Quite Expensive @ RIBs ONLY - Home of the Rigid Inflatable Boat
“Owning a RIB is investing in quality time I so long for.”- Karel Overlaet

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.
