bat RIB?

I was at the Miami Boat Show in February and ran across a very nice looking RIB called a BAT. This is made in Italy (www.bat.it). Does any one know anything about them? Also it tells me it is CE certification CAT B. What does that mean?

Any thoughts would be welcomed.

Thanks,

I saw one in a boat showroom in spain last year, they are much more of the mediterranean style rather than an all weather boat but they looked quite good anyway.

one looks very similar to a Stingher that weve just bought. Yesterday was our first trip out on it. Ours is about 6.9 metres and has a 200 suzi on the back. Went fine as quite bumpy at the Bar at Chichester and played in that for a while. More a Med style boat mind, which is where it will end up in a few weeks.

Cat B, as is ours, according to the our Destructions (from the Italian Naval Register) is "Force 8 Winds - waves up to 4 metres" but there's not much chance of us delibritely going out in anything like that.

But im sure others here will chip in chapter and verse about what else it means,

Pretty much nothing as I have learned... dont let a dealer convince you this coding carries any weight what so ever

Hi,


Isn't the CE certification important for the insurance in case of an accident?

I am not sure of the relevance to insurance, but the CE system is to a large amount self certified, so it gives the customer no guarantees at all but an indication as to its use in terms of the number of people it can carry and the sort of seas it can cope with.

Different companies and indeed nationalities have different views on how to interpret the rules and the categories. Fairly similar looking boats may have category C 7 people and another Category B 14 people and yet there may be no material difference in the boats - indeed it is not an indication that the Category B boat is any better at all!

I would take personal recommendation over a CE rating any day!
