Explorer Ballistic XP80 the Ultimate Adventure RIB?

Alex Smith from Motor Boat & Yachting takes a deep dive in the Rigid Inflatable Boat from Ballistic RIBs.

Ballistic Ribs has gained fame for its sea-going boats built to tackle South African waters.

The XP 80 stands out from traditional Ballistic models with its innovative design.

The RIB features a unique transom arrangement with a swim platform and low-level furniture, expanding deck space for leisure use.

It offers a convertible sun pad, spacious dining area, and a hidden berth for two.

The boat’s versatility extends to water sports, fishing, and storage options, including a paddleboard rack.

Powered by a Yamaha F300 engine, it reaches impressive speeds, of 50 knots but fuel efficiency varies with the cruising speed.

As an adventure RIB the model could do with a larger fuel tank. Check out more Ballistic RIB videos here.
