Her name is Zar Formenti Imagine 130 and she is the new 13-metre Rib by Zar Formenti. The Italian shipyard has thus entered the registered boat segment with a top of the range product, a Maxi Rib in all respects. This inflatable boat has not gone unnoticed at the Genoa International Boat Show and projects the Italian brand into a new market. Luxury, power and high-level solutions on a rib with a lot of personality.

Starting from the stern we find the cockpit with a multifunctional “island” structure. Even looking at the hull, this RIB shows a sporty soul. Looking at the deck, this suggestion is confirmed by the seats suitable for high-speed cruising. There is also a cooking area in the cockpit that allows easy access to the lower deck. All the spaces have been exploited to the full, starting with the walkway around the deckhouse that leads to the bow area where there is additional seating and a lounge.

The helm station offers space for electronic instrumentation and a cockpit with three seats suitable for high-speed navigation. Behind the seats there is a large structure with a max 130L fridge, induction hob and sink. Under the stern sofas there is a garage for a 180 cm tender that can be supplied with an electric motor, and on a second level below with a separate opening there is a large locker for the technical area for positioning the generator, air conditioning, boiler and various services.

Sporty and elegant, the boat is equipped with two cabins, a head with separate shower, dinette and sundeck and large cockpit spaces. The boat is built using the infusion technique, which saves weight compared to layering. The T-top is made from a single piece of carbon fibre.
