Product Description

With an advanced fiberglass hull shape, these Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs) are super quick to plane and handle with ease. The V-section slices through chop for a dry, comfortable ride. The 350 model has an ultra-strong double floor and a watertight forward storage compartment. Roomy interiors afford plenty of cargo space and lightweight construction tops the performance of larger, heavier RIBs.

Compare carrying capacity to competitor’s models and you will see these boats are far superior as well. Built-in davit padeyes come factory installed—a feature that normally costs extra. Hypalon RIBs are a good choice for tropical climates; long service life is assured by Pennel Orca 215 Hypalon fabric. The 350 models have four convenient lifting points. Boats include seat, pump, oars and repair kit.

    Comments about West Marine RIB-350 Double Floor Hypalon Inflatable Boat, Gray:

    This is our second WM Hypalon rib. The first had been purchased about 8 years ago. It was the rib 340 (built by Avon). She was a Cadillac, and seemed initially to be much better made. After two weekends of using the RIB 350 (built in China) I gotta admit I am very impressed with the product. I love the white color. The big tubes keep you safe. The aft section of the hull is flat allowing for easy planing. The drain/ catch basin is much larger and deeper than our prior RIB.

          Comments about West Marine RIB-350 Double Floor Hypalon Inflatable Boat, Gray:

          so far so good . I have only had the rib-350 a few weeks . I like the way the hull is design . its like the tubes are not even in the water so it plans really well . I only have a Nissan 9.8 on it and it fly's with 2 person totaling over 400 lbs . that's me and my wife . the best thing I like is the 19" tubes . I have a bad back . so when I sit on the tubes my knees are not in my chest . other ribs have ben like sitting on a floor.

          cheap dingy and cheap is what you get

          Comments about West Marine RIB-350 Double Floor Hypalon Inflatable Boat, Gray:

          I bought this dingy for use as a tender on my 44ft catamaran in the Caribbean 7 years ago. It was good for 3 years and has been down hill from there. The fabric is thin and started delaminating from exposure to the sun. I complained and they said it was not intended for year round use. It was a seasonal dingy, 3-4 months per year and it would last 10 or more years. Sorry they didn't tell me that. The baffles within the tube to separate compartments failed 2 or 3 years ago. That means if you get a leak in one tube eventually the entire dingy will go flat. The rub rail stiffened and came unstuck from the dingy. I repaired it several times professionally, but to no avail. I have seen a lot of old dingys down here, but none of them look as bad as this one.

          Comments about West Marine RIB-350 Double Floor Hypalon Inflatable Boat, Gray:

          Purchased new with a 20 HP 15"Merc from W/M as a Tender on davits of a 47' sailboat. Easy set up and inflating. Holds numbering paint very well. Handles better than the 310 model. Bow locker can get water in when washing so hand wash and rinse without hose. Storage locker holds lots! Very impressed with the purchase and service.
