Brig RIBs

Closer the time to choose the new small RIB comes, more difficult it's make the decision what to buy.

You may have noticed that Valiant has been the choise number one. Now I've found out that Brig RIBs are VERY competitively priced, at least here.

For example Brig Falcon 3,6m less than 2000 euro, Falcon 4m less than 2200 e. If compared to Valiants, there is almost 1000e difference betveen Valiant D380 and Brig F360.

It would be more than helpful if someone could tell something about Brigs. Especially overall quality, performance, etc.. I know that Brigs are made in Ukrain and the tube is made from 1100 PVC material. (all models also available with hypalon tube, costs around 1000e more)

Alan,
Just a correction...
http://www.briginflatable.com/


Site is very nice, with useful and clear information.
At least, brig ribs (the ribs or something else???) look very nice as you can see in the picture

Do you know the recommended book "Inflatable Boats"?

Brig sib

I have a B350 sib also a Metzeler rib. The B350 I injoy very much but only use it rowing for fishing. It's about 5-7 years old and looks brand new but use it one week a year. It is very stable and I row it 2-4k a day no problem. I wish it was hypalon but the pvc seems good. Sorry couldn't help any more.

There you go. This one is probably a bit smaller than what you are looking at but is certainly no less capable. It's now 4 years old but still looks great. I had a Mariner 15hp two stroke on the back and it went really well. Two people could lift it ok but too heavy on your own. 2nd hand you could pick one up between 400-700. New they are 1300ish.
