V-LITE RIB – The lightest RIB’s around! African Cats have some RIBS available on stock.
We have been sailing the waters of the world for many years. We discovered that dinghy’s are usually far too heavy to handle in any comfortable way. The dinghy’s that are easy to handle don’t have a rigid bottom and therefore manoeuver worse, while the existing RIB’s manoeuver well, but are too heavy to lift on board by manpower.
By building our RIB’s with epoxy vacuum infusion, we created RIB’s that are:
– Easy to handle
– Easy to manoeuver
– Super light weight
We make the strongest and lightest combination of all existing dinghies. The air chambers are produced from Hypalon. This product has absolutely no problems with ultra violet light. We produce our RIB’s in sizes from 2,70 meter (only 19 kgs) up to 4,00 meter.
