What is a FRIB

The Foldaway RIB

A FRIB is a foldaway RIB. A unique fully rigid inflatable boat that makes going boating quicker, easier and more accessible, for a variety of purposes and people.

When it’s not in use, it patented foldable rigid hull packs down to a compact, easily transportable size where it can be stowed on board or stored at home.

The FRIB’s rigid V-shaped GRP hull makes the range of foldaway RIBs highly seaworthy and extremely directionally stable. Cat C certified, the FRIB has a superior, safe, more comfortable ride compared to other non-rigid or semi-rigid inflatable boats.

Light, foldable, robust boats

The FRIB concept is a space saver that makes boating convenient and fun.

FRIBs are highly portable. Take it with you in the car, motorhome or boat, and enjoy the advantages of owning a good quality RIB without any of the costs of storage and berthing or the hassles of trailer launching.

Simply unfold, click the floor together, do up the wing nuts and inflate and go. When you are finished simply fold your RIB away.

Introducing the FRIB – with Steve Bruce

These folding RIBs make excellent tenders as well as good all-round dinghies. They’re tough, quick, stable and fold down into a small enough package to stow in a cockpit locker.Duncan Kent, Yachting Monthly

Owning a FRIB means:

Greater performance – more boat packed into a small space

Highly convenient – quick and easy to assemble & pack your foldaway RIB

Greater range – anchor further out and be assured of getting ashore

Rigid and reliable – go afloat in a wide range of conditions

More capacity – carry more people / provisions in one trip

Affordable boating – no trailer, berthing or storage fees

Stable, dry ride – increased comfort for passengers
Storing it on board, in the garage or even in a cupboard has the advantage of reducing security issues or risk of degradation. Your FRIB will be safely out of sight and away from the elements, salt water, weed growth and barnacles.
