The RIB 17’ SF, 5.73m length out all (5.18m length of hull) and 2.3m wide, is made to fill the FB Design boat range.
The combined presence of the inflatable collar divided into 5 separate chambers and the Structural Foam® construction makes this GRP boat a safe platform suitable for a small rescue boat, with a very high reserve of buoyancy: neither leaks nor flooding are possible. The inflatable collar is glued to the hull but, as an option, can be installed by means of poltruded guides embedded in the GRP to make it easily interchangeable.
The hull, the deck and the hardtop are mathematically designed and milled by a CAD-CAM system using our own 5-axis milling machine. The boat offers seating accommodation for a crew of 2 persons and 6 passengers. Crew members sit in tandem in a FB Design designed seat integrated with the deck, with shock absorber and spring suspension system. The console is centrally placed in the cockpit and in front of it is placed the seatbox (used to store equipment) where the passengers sit.
The RIB 17' SF is powered with engines from 40hp to 115hp, with a maximum speed of the boat from 25 to 40 knots.
