I think that I can help you out
Zefir is a traditional inflatable boat manufacturer in Brazil, until 2003 they only had boats made of PVC, now thereīs the Hypalon option.
The G600 is a good boat with and excelent finnish, but to be quite honest the tubes and bow are "too low" and they seem to drag a lot in the water...
US$21k in PVC
US$26k in Hypalon
Thereīs the G800 boat and thatīs a whole different story...that would be my choice if I didnīt had to tow it with my car
US$29k in PVC
US$37k in Hypalon
The best RIB manufacturer in Brazil itīs called Flexboat, they have lotīs of models and thereīs the SR550 and SR620 that are great, but pretty expensive...
Iīve had 2 Flexboat and loved them, but Iīm looking for a boat with a higher bow, and that I canīt find in a Brazilliam RIB with less than 7m...so Iīm about to import a RIB from China, that will cost me around US$28k delivered in Brazil (with a 98% importing taxes and freight) for a 6.8m RIB with Hypalon tubes(pics attached)
I have a quote that I ordered a few months a go for the G600, if you guys have interest in it or another Flexboat and Zefir model I can order a and mail them to you, the size is to big to post it here...
If you guys have any suggestion on these chinese RIBīs I would be much appreciated
