Benefits of an Inflatable Boat

If you are in the market for a boat, you may want to consider choosing an inflatable boat. There are a variety of benefits when compared to your traditional dingy or other non-inflatable boats. 


By nature, RIBs are extremely lightweight because of their inflatable siding. This makes RIBs much more fuel efficient than their non-inflatable counterparts and greatly increases their carrying capacity. 

Another benefit of inflatable boats is their storage. Not everyone has a large backyard, garage or shed for boat storage and boat storage facilities can be quite expensive. Small enough to store in a motorhome, campervan, four-wheel drive or even the laundry cupboard, everyone has enough space for an inflatable boat.   

They can also be used in any type of water, so no matter what kind of boating you like to do, there is an inflatable boat that is suitable for you.  


Designed for rescue missions and to endure rough conditions, RIBs are built for speed and power. They’re able to house powerful motors and yet because of their lightweight construction, require less horsepower to achieve the same speeds as traditional vessels. Furthermore, they have excellent shock absorption, allowing for a more comfortable and stable ride, even when things get a little rough.
