Aluminum Hull Rigid Inflatables 

Aluminum hull inflatables are the ultimate in lightweight strength, durability, seaworthiness and fuel efficiency.  

Here in Maine, aluminum RIBs are the inflatable of choice for their ability to handle rocky beaches, rock ledges, etc.

North Atlantic Inflatables uses only top quality high tensile #5052 marine-grade aluminum in our hulls.  The hulls are then powder coated and baked to ensure a smooth finish that is both beautiful and long-lasting. 


Our PVC boats are built using German fabric (Heytex) and have welded seams.  Our Hypalon boats incorporate Orca 600 series Hypalon fabric.  PVC tubes have a 5-year warranty (Note: PVC tubes are not warrantied for southern climates with intense sun year round.  For those climates, we strongly recommend the Hypalon tubes.)  Hypalon tubes have a 10-year manufacturer's warranty.

Our aluminum hull RIBs come in two versions:

  • Light Weight series (ALV):                                                               

  • Classic Series (ALA): includes welded in deck

  • Locker Series (L): includes welded-in bow locker sized to hold a 3-gallon fuel tank
