The feel-good video take you on a tour of the Rigid Inflatable Boat’s features, including its elegant design, spacious deck, and comfortable seating.
The RIB is powered by a Mercury Verado 250 hp outboard.
What immediately stands out of this LOMAC Turismo 7 point 0 is the well-designed deck layout which offers plenty of space featuring a sun deck and a convertible dining area, making it a good choice for day trips with 2 to 6 people.
The video showcases the boat’s excellent maneuverability and stability on the water, making it an excellent choice for cruising, watersports, or fishing.
The company states this LOMAC Turismo 7.0 is their best seller.
Many of us have probably been in a situation where the wind picked up and the sea was agitated; after all, you had checked the weather and sea conditions beforehand. There are a lot of good apps for that, by the way.
The Yamaha single outboard joystick control makes boating easier and more fun.
This advanced technology, not new and mainly used on multiple outboard installations, makes the experience of docking much smoother and enjoyable.
The video demonstrates how easy and intuitive boat manoeuvring at low speeds can be with this system.
Thanks to this joystick, the captain can easily change the boat’s direction and speed with ease. This eliminates the need for extensive steering systems and makes docking even in challenging weather simpler.
It is suitable for both experienced and novice boaters making it more accessible to more people.
Pros and Cons
I know that many RIBbers swear by pure manoeuvring with the throttle and wheel and therefore don’t like this system very much.
It comes down to practicing the right skills. Some say it’s even useless with a single outboard installation.
For newcomers however who can afford this expensive “accessory”, it is a pleasant and easier way to dock.
But make no mistake, it needs a lot of practicing as well to build experience in different weather and water conditions.
This single outboard joystick control is not a panacea.
