A RIB or "Rigid Inflatable Boat" usually consists of a strong rigid frame with a tough inflatable skin that ensures the weight of the vessel is kept to a minimum. The addition of an outboard or inboard engine then ensures that the RIB can travel very fast over the water and remains excellent value for money whether the vessel is being used for cruising, fishing or water skiing. These type of vessel have evolved to become a popular choice for mariners who wish to carry out a number of marine activities.
