An impressive forward dead rise with a long steep sheer towards the bow, a deep V hull, and the highest of construction standards, allows this RIBCRAFT to go virtually anywhere and do almost anything. The reinforced hull enables the 7.8 to sustain the most demanding situations Mother Nature or mankind throws her way. With her rugged, proven offshore design, long waterline, high swept bow, and trademark RIBCRAFT hull, the RIBCRAFT 7.8 delivers exceptional performance no matter the power choice; one or two outboards, jet drives, or an inboard diesel. Designed with marine and safety professionals in mind, you can be assured that this RIB is among the safest and most reliable youll find.
The RIBCRAFT 2570 offers a wide array of configurations and options, allowing individuals to create a boat uniquely their own. With a host of seating choices from pod seats to leaning posts and benches, the 7.8 is well suited for family boating or long distance excursions.
The tubes on the 7.8 are bonded over an extended tube flange giving them far superior bonding strength between tube and hull than conventional attachments. The heavy duty Hypalon tubes feature seven air chambers with pressure relief valves, overlapped and doubled up seams, and reinforcing all pressure and wear points.
