Why Choose a RIB?
RIB’s (Rigid Inflatable Boats) are constructed
with a conventional planning hull manufactured out of fiber-glass
with an inflatable collar for increased buoyancy and stability.
The collar (or TUBE) acts as a shock absorber ensuring that the
craft has unparalleled seaworthiness, safety and stability. RIB’s
are used around the world by Military, Commercial, Rescue and Recreational
Good Reasons to Own an ASIS...
The separated air chambers ensure that the increased buoyancy created
by the air tubes remain effective even in the event of puncture.
ASIS boats would propel themselves efficiently regardless of air
tubes but the air tubes provide ultimate safety.
2> Light Weight.
The air tube collar construction result in the ASIS Rigid
Inflatable Boat being significantly lighter than a conventional
hard sided boat. This advantage ensures that it is easier to trailer
behind a vehicle or lift on to the deck of a larger vessel.
3> Easy launching and retrieving.
Due to the ASIS RIB’s lightness it is easy to launch and retrieve
making boating less hassle.
The weight saving aspect of the ASIS craft will generally make the
boat more fuel economic allowing for a lower running cost and greater
relative travelling range.
5> Exceptional Speed
The lightness will ensure that HP vs. HP the ASIS RIB will
mostly outperform any conventional hard sided boat with the same
6> Outstanding load carrying capacity
ASIS RIB’s have a greater relative load carrying
capacity due to the inflatable collars providing ultimate buoyancy
and stability. Thus allowing you to transport considerable charges
without affecting the performance
7> Remarkable Stability
The inflatable collars on the ASIS Rigid Inflatable Boat
serve as a stabilizing platform whether at standstill or traveling
at high speed. Particularly at high speed and in adverse conditions
this stability becomes a significant advantage. Military and Sea
Rescue craft use RIB’s with this benefit in mind.
8> Dry Ride
The air collars offer vastly improved wave deflection resulting
in a drier ride and the ability to navigate more extreme sea conditions.
9> Soft Ride
The air collars offer a shock absorption especially noticeable in
extreme sea state conditions.
ASIS Rigid Inflatable Boats are versatile with plenty of open deck
space to utilize for customizable accessory layout. The safety and
performance qualities ensure versatility in sea conditions. Asis
will serve you well in adverse sea conditions sometimes not suited
to hard sided boats.
ASIS uses quality materials to manufacture and produce
all products. Well recognized marine product suppliers are sourced
through the dedicated procurement personnel to ensure quality and
compliance. We realize the importance of quality fittings, however
small, are critically important in the safety and enjoyment of your
boat. Only Hypalon™ is used in the manufacture of the ASIS
tubes. ASIS do not believe that a PVC product can provide the longevity
and safety that can be compared with the multi layered Hypalon fabric.
All materials are incorporated into the ASIS Warranty.
Each boat is built with your safety in mind. Every critical employee
at ASIS knows boats, uses boats and understands the importance of
building boats with quality and safety at the forefront of their
ASIS knows that whether it is your commercial application, your
rescue mission or your family and loved ones, when at sea it is
important that our boats perform their job in a safe and functional
The ASIS professional design team will always ensure that our standards
of manufacture are constantly evolving with the current world-wide
regulations with the objective of always remaining ahead.
ASIS is committed to safe boating and offers and recommends sea
training on all boats.
Rigorous testing are performed on each boat before introduction
in the market.
Samples of some tests:
- All people one 1 side of the boat at full load.
- Towing the boat at full load.
- Full speed turns in 100 meter for maneuverability.
- Flotation without air in the tubes at full load.
