Zulu 33P RIB Vacuum Injection Process

The Vacuum Infusion Process involves applying vacuum pressure to laminate materials. The process starts with a dry material being laid into the mold where vacuum is then applied before liquid resin is poured in.

Vacuums are created using carefully placed tubing that pulls the resin into the laminate.

This process is being used to build the Zulu 33P Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) by the Sweden Zulu Marine.

Their boats are designed in cooperation with Adam Younger and Petter Martens some of the best designers in the industry and both members of RIBs ONLY.

For such usage Ullman seats were chosen. Check out these videos for more Ullman Seats.

Great Quote I Found in our Facebook Group

Great Quote I Found in our Facebook Group @ RIBs ONLY - Home of the Rigid Inflatable Boat
Zulu Marine RIB

I encountered this incredible quote in our Facebook group in a post about the Swedish RIB-built by Zulu Marine AB. This quote was shared on January 20, 2022:

The designer patted my tube and said: “There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad hulls. Go out there!”

And that designer is none other than the amazing Petter Martens, member of RIBs ONLY! Petter made the conversion to a RIB based on the enormously capable Adam Younger‘s hull design and running surfaces. Adam is also member of RIBs ONLY!

The collaboration between these two very successful designers reached its peak in this impressive ZULU RIB.
