For the Route du Rhum, a memorable event, the French well-known Zodiac company crafted an exceptional collection of sixteen Pro Open 650 and four Pro 750 RIBs.
These Rigid Inflatable Boats were utilised effectively to safeguard the starting area.
In partnership with Suzuki Marine (an official partner of the event), the Pro Open 650s are equipped with white TGX 150hp outboard engines. They came turnkey with a Nautilus trailer, a GPS unit, and safety equipment.
The Zodiac Pro 750s are almost identical in design, however there is one key difference. One is powered by a robust and reliable Suzuki 250hp APX engine and boasts a more advanced GPS unit with enhanced capabilities to provide the ultimate navigation experience.
I published another version of the Open 650 should you be interested.
These special editions of ‘collectors’ items have been selling unbelievably fast! Unless they are taken off the shelves, many Route du Rhum models were sold before the boat show by various dealers.
