New FB 60' SF

The new FB 60’SF is a new boat in the wide-beam FB Design boats range. Like all the new models, the FB 60’ SF features the Structural Foam® technology, that...



The new RIB 42' Sport, sport pleasure boat, is the evolution of the well known Tecno 40', which was the winner of many offshore races including the Miami-New York, this rigid inflatable boat is considered the best rough water boat in the world. The same boat is in use by many prestigious military corps and special forces (Italy, South Africa, Norway and Hong Kong).

The RIB 42' is capable of a speed from 55 to 70 knots, with engines like Cummins or Caterpillar.

Thanks to the revolutionary Structural Foam® injection system, the new version of the RIB 42' is now unsinkable and trasmits a great feeling of toughness to the driver. The perfect symmetry and balancing of the boat offers the best stability performance in every condition.

The RIB 42' Sport has outstanding performances, particularly in rough weather conditions where the large inflatable collar provides great stability and a continuous suspension system when in contact with the waves. The RIB 42' SPORT can be powered with different engines configurations which go from a minimum total power of 880 HP up to 1730 HP.

The cockpit is well protected by the high sides and the front windshield, and features four Tecno Single seats and a banquette, and is accessed from the large engine cowling (also used for sunbathing) through moulded steps. At the front centre of the cockpit there is the door that leads to the forward cabin. Spacious and comfortable it is fitted with a V shaped berth and a table that lifts and lowers on a steel structure. A separate bathroom with sink, toilet and shower is fitted on the right just after the entrance, and opposite is the small kitchen with fridge, sink and electric oven.

Optionally a special folding soft top can be installed thus closing the cockpit in order to protect the passengers from the sun, wind and rain.

The Buzzi 42' RIB is equipped with the new FB Design electronic throttle, which features separated throttle and gear controls, for improved safety. The gears are actuated through switches, which allows both operated by a single hand, allowing a superior manouvering.
The trim tabs can be controlled either manually or automatically, the latter as a function of the speed, through an interface with the GPS. The boat is fully laminated in Kevlar 49 and it is equipped with rubber aviation type fuel cells that greatly reduces the risk of failure at high speed. Every mechanical element of the boat that is in the water is made from stainless steel, including drives and trim tabs.

Comfort and security are augmented by the four FB Design special Tecno Single seats, which besides the damping effect, an electrically controlled piston allows variable support depending on the sea conditions, so that the driver can stand up, sit down or adopt any intermediary position. The result: driving comfort and greater safety, even for long use in rough conditions.
