So you’ve chosen to purchase RIB this year. But which RIB should you buy? With so many makes and models on the market, it can be hard to decide. Some brands focus on customisation and pleasure, whereas others produce year-round workhorses that will take on any job you throw at them.
But if you’re looking for the perfect blend of comfort and functionality, then a Zeppelin RIB is the right choice for you.
Let’s take a closer look at what makes these RIBS so special.
Take Advantage of the Innovative “Deep V” Hull
In case you’re unfamiliar with the story, back in 1995, the French Olympic Sailing Team approached Zeppelin to build a boat that, as of that moment, did not yet exist. They wanted a semi-rigid seacraft that offered the perfect blend of durability, stability, and comfort.
Not phased by the gauntlet thrown down by the Olympic Team, the team at Zeppelin went to work and, within a year, their engineers had developed the world’s first “Deep V” hull. This innovative design is still used on all of Zeppelin’s RIBs today and offers a number of advantages for users.
First and foremost, it forms a body with the elements and absorbs impacts better, meaning a smoother and more comfortable ride. The deep V also provides superior directional stability in both calm and choppy waters.
Zeppelin RIBs quickly took the professional market by storm, and their success has also transferred over to the domestic and pleasure markets.
Benefit from Enhanced Durability
One of the reasons so many people flock to the Zeppelin brand is because of their world-renowned durability. With a Zeppelin RIB, you’re getting a boat that’s built to last.
This is partly due to the Deep V Hull design and protruding strakes, but also their Hypalon 1670 Decitex wear-proof membrane. Such is the durability; some of the models in the Zeppelin RIB range are classed as unsinkable.
So if seaworthiness and durability are important to you in a RIB, then Zeppelin is the right choice for you.
Enjoy the Quality of a Hand-Crafted RIB
Every Zeppelin RIB is tailor-made to your specifications. Not only does that give you the benefit of a bespoke design, but it gives you the additional quality associated with a hand-crafted design assembled from scratch.
Rather than purchasing a cheaper, mass-produced RIB that’s been churned out of a factory to meet targets and deadlines, when you buy Zeppelin, you’re getting a RIB that’s been painstakingly hand-crafted by experts in their field. Zeppelin’s skilled team of boat builders take a lot of time, care, and effort to ensure each RIB passes the rigorous tests put in place.
The end result is a RIB that’s of the highest quality, both in terms of build and materials. You’ll be able to tell the difference as soon as you step on board.
Choose from a Wide Range of Models
Another excellent feature of the Zeppelin brand is that you have dozens of RIB variants to choose from. No matter what your budget is, or what size RIB you’re looking for, Zeppelin will have something that’s perfect for you.
From the small and light 15 VPRO all the way up to the top-of-the-line 8.5m XVPRO 850 boasting a 2445kg load capacity, Zeppelin really does have it all.
But, don’t forget, you still have the option to configure consoles, seats, lockers, colour schemes and much more to ensure your RIB is just the way you want it.
