ASIS Boats has just completed the production of two 8 meter Patrol Boats for a private company that provides construction and vital services in the Oil and Gas sector in West Africa.
These RHIBs are designed to ensure the safety of the State’s internal waterways by regulating, establishing and maintaining them.
Each Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat (RHIB) is featuring our patented fiberglass air-hull, an aluminum open wheel house, a military grey Neoprene hypalon 1670 Dtex collar filled with PE Foam, double jockey seats for 6 passengers, and two aluminum fuel tanks of a combined total capacity of 600L, allowing the boat to cruise continuously for over a full work day.
The wheelhouse has specially been designed to be easily removable for the purpose of shipping. Knowing that the boat is fitted with our exclusive Hyb Foam® non-deflatable foam tube; a custom design wheelhouse was necessary in order to fit the boat in a 40 foot container and save on the shipping cost.
A weapon mount and FLIR thermal night vision camera have been installed in addition to the Garmin GPS MAP, vision SD Card, and a hull mounted transducer which are all standard on these Patrol Boats. Each Patrol Boat has the capacity to carry up to six seated passengers, while it is certified to carry 15 passengers offshore.
The boat is capable of reaching higher cruising speeds of 20 knots and traveling longer distances in safety and comfort, thanks to the twin Yamaha 4 stroke F200hp BETX outboard engines with hydraulic steering.
With a multitude of selections, seating configurations and accessories, every ASIS RIB Boat is tailored built for the purpose it is intended for.
Recognizing that each owner, organization or agency has its individual specific requirements, each rigid inflatable boat is built to order.
Built in either Fiberglass (Air Hull®) or marine grade Aluminum hull, all our Rigid Inflatable Boats hypalon sponsons can be fitted with either pneumatic or our unique Hyb Foam® technology.
ASIS Boats designs & manufactures Custom Built Patrol Boats to meet any customers needs. Always trying to exceed expectation and meeting un-met needs.
