Of all the motor boats dedicated to pleasure-boating, rigid-hulled inflatable boats are one of the most demanded by customers. These streamlined boats, also known as inflatable boats, are actually composed of a hull supported by inflatable tubes (also known as floats). The boats are then propelled forwards by an engine, which is either an outboard (visible next to the steering wheel), or an inboard motor (situated in the hold, at the rear).
The sturdiness of its hull is due mainly to the fact that it is made of steel, aluminium, and a composite material combining wood, plastic and glass fibre. Furthermore, this type of boat offers a superior stability, buoyancy and weight capacity in comparison to classic open hull boats of the same dimensions. The rigid-hulled boat is also often chosen by maritime professionals for their rescue missions, military interventions, surveillance, training, etc.
Powerful, reliable and multipurpose, it's easy to understand why those who enjoy deep sea diving, fishing and fast journeys normally rent open/rigid-hulled boats. Furthermore, in addition to being remarkably efficient in calm weather, its excellent manoeuvrability provides that feeling of freedom to which ocean lovers are addicted.
