With a deep-V design and tough aluminum hull, this boat planes quickly, handles nimbly and can be beached on myriad shoreline surfaces.
Substance and Style: The rigid deep-V hull and transom are made of heavy-gauge 6061-T-6 aluminum. For added strength and rigidity, the double floor is supported by a stringer system. Attractive black or white powder-coating improves corrosion resistance. Tubes made from glued Orca 215 fabric withstand the sun’s rays.
Efficient Performer: The 171lb. RIB-275 is rated for up to a 10hp outboard. Her 16" tubes and deep-V design help the boat plane easily and cut through chop. A heavy-duty rubstrake protects the tubes and knocks down spray.
High Capacity: The boat measures 9' long with a 4'11" beam and is rated to carry four persons or 937 pounds. The wide flat floor optimizes available space and there's a wooden bench seat.
All Inclusive: The standard-equipment list includes four factory-installed lifting points, top-end Halkey-Roberts inflation valves, carrying handles, an exterior lifeline, oars, a repair kit and an inflation pump.
