RIBs (Rigid Inflatable Boats) are constructed with a
conventional planning hull manufactured out of fiber-glass with an inflatable
collar for increased buoyancy and stability. The collar (or TUBE) acts as a
shock absorber ensuring that the craft has unparalleled seaworthiness, safety
and stability. RIBs are used around the world by Commercial, Commercial, Rescue
and Recreational users.
10 Good Reasons to Own an ASIS...
The separated air chambers ensure that the increased
buoyancy created by the air tubes remains effective even in the event of
puncture. ASIS boats would propel themselves efficiently regardless of air
tubes but the air tubes provide ultimate safety.
2> Light Weight.
The air tube collar construction results in the ASIS
Rigid Inflatable Boat being significantly lighter than a conventional hard
sided boat. This advantage ensures that it is easier to trailer behind a
vehicle or lift on to the deck of a larger vessel.
3> Easy launching and retrieving.
Due to the ASIS RIBs lightness it is easy to launch and
retrieve making boating less hassle.
The weight saving aspect of the ASIS craft will generally
make the boat more fuel economic allowing for a lower running cost and greater
relative travelling range.
5> Exceptional Speed
The lightness will ensure that HP vs. HP the ASIS RIB will
mostly outperform any conventional hard sided boat with the same power.
6> Outstanding load carrying capacity
ASIS RIBs have a greater relative load carrying capacity due
to the inflatable collars providing ultimate buoyancy and stability. Thus
allowing you to transport considerable charges without affecting the
7> Remarkable Stability
The inflatable collars on the ASIS Rigid Inflatable Boat
serve as a stabilizing platform whether at standstill or traveling at high
speed. Particularly at high speed and in adverse conditions this stability
becomes a significant advantage. Commercial and Sea Rescue craft use RIBs with
this benefit in mind.
8> Dry Ride
The air collars offer vastly improved wave deflection
resulting in a drier ride and the ability to navigate more extreme sea
9> Soft Ride
The air collars offer a shock absorption especially
noticeable in extreme sea state conditions.
ASIS Rigid Inflatable Boats are versatile with plenty of
open deck space to utilize for customizable accessory layout. The safety and
performance qualities ensure versatility in sea conditions. Asis will serve you
well in adverse sea conditions sometimes not suited to hard sided boats.
ASIS uses quality materials to manufacture and produce
all products. Well recognized marine product suppliers are sourced through the
dedicated procurement personnel to ensure quality and compliance. We realize
the importance of quality fittings, however small, are critically important in
the safety and enjoyment of your boat. Only HypalonTM is used
in the manufacture of the ASIS tubes. ASIS do not believe that a PVC product
can provide the longevity and safety that can be compared with the multi
layered Hypalon fabric. All materials are incorporated into the ASIS
SAFETY & QUALITY
Each boat is built with Design, Safety, Performance and
Quality in mind. Every critical employee at ASIS knows boats, uses boats and
understands the importance of building boats with quality and safety at the
forefront of their minds.
ASIS knows that whether its your commercial application,
your rescue mission or your family and loved ones, when at sea it is important
that our boats perform their job in a safe and functional manner.
The ASIS professional design team will always ensure that
our standards of manufacture are constantly evolving with the current
world-wide regulations with the objective of always remaining ahead.
ASIS is committed to safe boating and offers and recommends
sea training on all boats.
Rigorous testing are performed on each boat before
introduction in the market.
Samples of some tests:
All people one 1 side of the boat at full load.
Towing the boat at full load. Full speed turns in 100 meter
