my kids call them mini ribs.. "cause they are"


Well actualy they aren't. A Rigid Hull Inflatable (RIB) as it says has a rigid hull. These come in all sizes from 2.5m upwards.

A Soft Inflatable Boat does NOT have a rigid hull. It is completely inflatable (often including the floor), okay so the transom is made of wood. Anyway the whole boat will fold up into a bag. These also come in all sizes from about 2m to about 6m.

But they are different beasts.

Nice photos

superb shots of the RIB. I had spotted it on B&O but unfortunately she's a little rich for my pocket - maybe one day. Good luck with your sale. It's a bit flat at the moment so hold on in there.

So this is a M-RIB or mini RIB. Note the hard hull (although not much of a deep V!)
