Ceasar Marine helps Key West event celebrate 21st birthday

2008 marks the 21st anniversary of North America’s premiere annual sailing regatta the Acura Key West 2008. Between 21 and 25 January 2008, Key West will play host to the famous annual gathering of international grand prix boats, high profile yacht-racing classes and sailing legends. Ceasar Marine US is proud to be the official RIB & sponsor for the 2008 event.

“In the last few months we have moved part of our boat manufacturing facilities to the city of DeLand in Florida and it’s an honour to associate our brand with one of the biggest regattas on the US calendar,” says Tom Donovan of Ceasar Marine US LLC. It will also be an amazing opportunity to display two of the company’s new RIBs (Rigid Inflatable Boat) to an increasingly receptive US boating market.

Ceasar is supporting the Regatta with two committee boats, its established P850 luxury RIB powered by twin Honda 225hp outboards and the commercial variant of the same design called the C850. During the race week the two boats will be involved in a number of official duties, including race starts, safety patrols at marker buoys and providing a fast and stable platform for the event’s on-water photography.

The two boats share the 8.25 metre deep V-shaped hull that gives this design a wide stance and a secure ride, even in rough waters. The main difference between the C and P (‘Commercial’ and ‘Premium’ specification respectively) models is the fit-out. The P850 looks like a super-yacht tender with recessed LED lighting with lots of lockers and plenty of stainless steel fixtures and fittings.

By contrast, the C850 is pared right down to a utility boat that offers masses of storage. Essentially the whole boat is one self-draining flat deck with a simple two-plus-two seating console with a T-top canopy. The tubes are fitted differently on the C850 too, they use a bolt-on system instead of glue, which will make repairs much quicker and reduce downtime for commercial operators.

“The US markets, especially the workboat sectors, are becoming much more aware of RIBs and the benefits that they offer over conventional designs,” says D Butler of Ceasar Marine US LLC. “Buyers in this sector are also pleasantly surprised that they can buy a branded RIB that is 100% made in America – which is really helping our marketing.”
