No expense was spared in the construction & fitting out of this truly versatile high performance Air Rider RIB which has had little or no use since it was commissioned in April 2008. Designed by Gavin Mair / Global Marine Design, the aluminium hull was built by Auztek Engineering in Wales from a router precision cut kit, under the careful eye of the boat’s highly experienced owner & his surveyor. The remainder of the fit out & engineering work was then undertaken by a range of specialists including Henshaws who supplied the “Lifeboat” specified hypalon tubes with double “D” fendering. Its ample deck space, lay out & renowned performance make it an ideal choice as a luxury tender or for high speed charter & patrol applications. Designed to be used when other boats stay in the marina & must be seen to be fully appreciated.
