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, and beautifully cut through the water.

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

Our aluminum hull RIBs come in two versions:

  • Light Weight series (ALV): single hull, V floor                                                                

  • Classic Series (ALA): double hull, welded in flat floor deck

  • Locker Series (L): double hull with a welded-in bow locker sized to hold a 3-gallon fuel tank and tube to put fuel line under the deck

Before placing a web order, we highly suggest calling or emailing to confirm stock.  We sell our boats 

in our shop as well as on the web and we try to keep our website up to date on inventory but a quick call
