BUZZI 55' RIB - with closed hard-top

The RIB 55' represents a new FB DESIGN challenge in the high performance boats world. This RIB uses the same hull of FB 55' but 60 cm larger. This hull has been two times Superboat World Champion and now is adopted by the Italian “Guardia di Finanza” for a high speed interceptor class.

The version with closed hard-top proposes 4 Tecno G10 seats and a banquette, but custom version is available for up to 15 persons. In the 4 seat version a spacious forward cabin with toilet and pantry is provided, as well as a dining area transformable in a V berth for two persons. Custom fitting for different deck layouts, vary from extensive sunbathing area, to rear cocktail area with refrigerated low table to a forward Jacuzzi.


BUZZI 55' RIB - with open hard-top

This other model with an open hard-top is a new version of the existing RIB 55', is based on a twin installation of caterpillar C18 (1.000 Hp each), with a top speed of over 60 knots. An astonishing speed for two mellow engines!

The boat is based on a central console with a rigid top that extends from the sides right through to the console in the center of the cockpit, covering from the elements four of our sprung dumped Tecno Twin seats and a comfortable rear sofa. Alongside of the rigid top there is a streamline spoiler which, thanks to its shape, deviates air and rain flow to increase passenger comfort. Forward of the driving console is a second L shaped sofa and the access to the luxurious forward cabin with galley and toilette.
