This ribs are powerful that when you push the throttle to the limit, the world becomes so thin as a line. Then squint your eyes to be able to read, full of adrenaline, the figure on the display that indicates the speed, from 40 knots … up! Then, however, there comes a moment when you stop and want everything to be comfortable. Summarizing power, space, comfort combined with a good dose of luxury. These are the four basic ingredients of the top of the range models among the rib. Here are eight with which you will certainly not go unnoticed.

8 insa

She’s not a RIB for “quiet people”. First of all, because of power. This boat, indeed, is fitted with two engines, 1900 HP each. So, total power is 4000 HP! Then, because of dimensions. 20 meters long, she is a little less than an “inflatable” mega-yacht. A RIB with extreme performance – top speed is 60 knots – designed by Christian Grande.
