Product Description

This boat’s rigid fiberglass hull makes the Compact RIB-310 a good choice for anyone looking for high performance, minimal maintenance and super-fast set-up and tear-down. Innovative design can be inflated or deflated in less than ten minutes. The fully folding transom is extremely compact, stowing as easily as a sailboard and creates an easy-to-transport flat form. The buoyancy tubes are made of premium German Heytex fabric with a large, custom color rubstrake and reinforced cone ends to resist tears and punctures. The boat's solid fiberglass hull features a deeper V-profile that is stronger, planes very quickly, and offers a much smoother ride than previous models. Additional upgrades include USA-made Halkey-Roberts valves and a wooden bench seat. Includes aluminum oars, oarlocks, lifelines, towing rings, bow handle, inflation pump, carry bag, repair kit, and pressure gauge.

Comments about West Marine Compact Rib-310 Folding Transom Rigid Inflatable Boat:

We use the boat as a tender to our boat while cruising. Compact and fits well between the dodger and the mast on our FIRST42.
Its a little heavy to load and unload but works great as a tender..

Comments about West Marine Compact Rib-310 Folding Transom Rigid Inflatable Boat:

The fuel tank tie down is useless. The boat needs a platform or flat area where the fuel tank mounts. Without that the tank slides to one side or the other. Because of the strain the little screws that hold the tank strap brackets pulled loose. They are pretty puny. otherwise good boat fot the money. Use an outboard with an internal fuel tank and this won't be a problem.

Comments about West Marine Compact Rib-310 Folding Transom Rigid Inflatable Boat:

Storage bag is very tight, you may never get it back in. Needs a few more inches all the way around. It is so tight it takes several people, you have to force it and bend the seams an edges, not a good way to treat a pricey dingy.

      Comments about West Marine Compact Rib-310 Folding Transom Rigid Inflatable Boat:

      I purchased this for a tender to my 38' boat. It has far exceeded my expectations. Very stable to get in and out of. Surprisingly roomy. We carry chairs, coolers, etc to the beach from the boat. We have an 8hp Mercury on it with a Weaver Leaver. It draws next to nothing so it is very easy to get a fully loaded boat and persons right to the shore. Kids love it as well. With an 8hp it will get up on plain very fast with 2 people totaling 350 lbs. We have had 5 adults on it for a short marina cruise and again it is dry and stable. Comes with a great quality storage bag, pressure gauge, and high capacity foot pump. I was told at the store it was not china made and not made by zodiac, however it has a zodiac registration card and the capacity plate says made in China hmmmm. So far it has beed a great purchase and a welcome addition to the boat.
