We are pleased to announce the arrival of the Roughneck range of high performance RIBs to Australia! With race-bred VFI stepped hull design, Dutch shipbuilding quality and expertise, proven commercial applications and custom builds, the Roughneck range will suit the most demanding buyer.
The Roughneck 808 RIB tender is a high performance, high quality rigid inflatable with a hand laid GRP hull with ORCA Hypalon tubes. Suited for outboards between 250HP and 350HP. Fully customisable and expertly crafted, these exceptional centre console RIBs are also priced very competitively.
The 808 is a true all-rounder; a chase boat for a motor yacht or as a day boat to cruise around with family and friends. The stepped hull design and race-bred engineering ensures this RIB is an all-weather performer for our tough Australian conditions. Proven in commercial applications, the Volvo Ocean Race Team Brunel chose a Roughneck 808 as their support boat for the 2018 Volvo Race.
The double stepped hull gives it excellent seakeeping characteristics and is more efficient in terms of fuel consumption.
The 808 can be fitted with a rear seat for more comfort. If you want more space in the cockpit for dive gear or fishing room, you can opt for a straight stern. Ample storage is provided by the below deck lockers in the bow and under the console. A limitless amount of customisation is possible with Roughneck, including forward cabin designs, inboard motors, T-Tops and more.
