Capable. For professional mariners who spend a great deal of time on the water, Sea RIBs™ provide a smoother ride – more comfort & security for operators – than a traditional boat. Plus, their deep-V hulls and low stance in the water provide excellent and predictable handling – especially in choppy water. Finally, the RIB technology was conceived with boarding and personnel transfer in mind.
The Sea RIB™ range has been defined to offer ready-made RIBs as an alternative to the more sophisticated and expensive Hurricane range. These lightweight boats have tremendous weight carrying capacity, are economical to operate and easy to maintain. Sea RIB™ Responder (SRR) features removable bouancy tubes and below deck fuel tanks. Sea RIB™ Marine and Navy (SRMN) models are reinforced to withstand maximum G-forces when fully loaded.
Zodiac Sea RIBs™ are appropriate for use by: Military Units including the Navy, First Responders, Law Enforcement, Search and Rescue Teams, Professional Mariners, Industry, Science, and Research Companies.
The Zodiac Hurricane range of RIBs are mission specific vessels used by the most discriminating and knowledgeable operators on the seas. They demand the utmost in ruggedness and reliability, and Hurricane delivers.
Turnkey Hurricanes - We have developed several turnkey models based on historical contract definitions specified over the last 20 years. Turnkey models are fully defined, competitively priced, and faster to order and deliver. They can be specified with aluminum or fiberglass hulls, inboard or outboard engine, and propeller or jet drives – all with removable air collars for rapid and easy maintenance, accepting either standard air or DuraRIB™ foam collars. Models larger then the 560 have under-deck fuel tanks, and models larger than the 630 can be equipped with dive doors.
Commando Turnkeys: Designed for use by 2-man or larger crews, with hull design and seating arrangements to mitigate shock, maximize seaworthiness, and minimize radar signature for operating in hostile areas. 630 IO; 733 IO; 753 OB; 920 OB; 933 OB.
Search and Rescue Turnkeys: Designed to work independently, with jockey seats and self-righting capabilities. 753 OB; 933 aft IO.
