not sure how there ribs are but I had the pleasure to own a small 12' sib ant the quality sould be seen in every aspect of the boat. I believe they They use hypalon on most of there boats which is always good. I was impressed with how well it seemed put together. Hope this helps

This month's copy of 'Sports Boat & Rib' have a review on a Brig.

Worth looking at!

I own a Brig XM300 which is their 3m rib. Takes a max 15hp and is a medium V
hull. It is a very tough little boat and still looks good after 6 or so years. It's got hypalon(I think) sponsons and there is no sign of degradation. With the engine removed two people can just about lift it. Price new is about 1280 so compare that with the build quality of similar sized ribs. Made in South Wales I believe. Can't speak of the bigger ribs but probably similar build quality.
Hope that helps.

I was looking at the FALCON Riders 450

This is the rib that I was looking at because it is light weight.

I was seriously considering purchasing a Brig Eagle last year, so looked into this brand in some depth. Brig RIBs are, I believe, manufactured in Ukraine by some ex aerospace people, so they should know something about design and build standards! BRIG manufacture inflatables for pleasure, rescue and military use and their boats are good quality. I don't know about the Falcon range specifically but the Eagles have a good hull with performance to match.

Thinking of Brig

I am thinking of purchasing 2 Brig Falcon 470 with 30 hp Mercury for rescue use in a club. Can anyone give a reference to this package
