Our 9'8" RIB is one of our most popular boats!  This is perfect for 4 people and gives you a beautiful ride or towing experience with the deep V, aluminum hull and larger tubes to keep you dry.  This boat has a flat deck floor (“double hull.”)  We have folks using this size boat in the Arctic Circle on a National Geographic adventure and in the Bahamas on a cruise!   


"Loving our inflatable. It gets its share of comments when we are using it.  Everyone loves how dry it is when we get up on a plane into some rough water."  Customer Dwayne Kulk


This boat is available with either PVC tubes (light gray bow and dark gray stern colors) OR Hypalon tubes (all light gray.)   Hypalon tubes are $1000 more.
