2 Rafnar RIBs Fly-by in Impressive Black and White

Rafnar RIBs

Rafnar RIBs (Rigid Inflatable Boats) are high-quality boats, developed in Iceland that have gained a reputation for their superior behaviour in rough seas.

These RIBs are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions and rough seas, making them ideal for professional and tactical use.

Karatea based Rafnar Hellas has built a leisure version, seen in this video as the white model. Want to know more about that model, just click here.

One of the key features of Rafnar RIBs is their innovative hull design (Ök hull), which incorporates a unique wave-canceling system that minimizes shock and vibration.

This results in a smoother ride, improved stability, and greater fuel efficiency, so they claim.

The boats can be customized to meet specific requirements and can be equipped with a variety of features, such as high-tech navigation systems, powerful engines, and advanced safety equipment. As is the case with other professional RIB brands.

High Priced

They come at a premium price but their superior performance make them well worth the investment for those who demand the best.

Club del Gommone Magnificent Winter RIB Run

On 9 February 2023, members of the Club del Gommone held a winter RIB run on the beautiful Lake Como in Italy to open the season.

This 52nd edition of the Invernale started this year from Vercurago at the Cantiere Bolis on Lake Garlate.

After leaving the boatyard, the group sailed north to exit Lake Garlate and, after a short stretch of the River Adda, entered Lake Como just in front of the city of Lecco.

From there, they went up the lake for about fifteen miles, passing Abbadia Lariana, Mandello, and heading for Punta Spartivento di Bellagio, recognizable by the cliff that separates the lake into two branches.

Near the cliff, as is tradition, they toasted with an auspicious aperitif to start the season.

After the aperitif in the water, they returned to Vercurago (around 14:00-14:30) for an additional aperitif, which by then will have become a snack, at the Bar Restaurant ‘Il Molo’ opposite the boatyard for the 2022 edition.

There was no participation fee.

As a good organiser some agreements were made:

  • On Lake Garlate, you may not exceed a speed of 10 knots.
  • Under the bridges along the stretch of river connecting the two lakes, you must not exceed 5 knots
  • On Lake Como, you cannot exceed 22 knots.
  • The boatyard has fuel.
  • Navigation communications channel 73.

Their other RIB Raids are impressive as well.
