Whats with Liya RIB's ??

Ok..Does not appear 'to good to be true' as the pricing appears good but reasonable. Curious about quality though. Anyone have experience with these RIB's???


Liya 20feet China Cheap Rigid Inflatable Hypalon Engine Boats - China China Boats, China Cheap Boats

Also, can anyone confirm that some Zodiacs are also made in China??

A few Forum members have owned Chinese RIB's....Usually not for very long!...Build Quality and materials being the main Gripe..although layouts don't score too highly either.
Compared to the established British Marques over here they aren't rated very highly...at all
Not aware if Zodis are manufactured in China..but may well be the case,and pretty easy to check.

I'm not calling them a Liya, but those bear more than a passing resemblance to a Piranha RIB Piranha 6m RIB - Performance cruising
