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.
