The AF Series, designed specifically for military, special forces, and first responders, provides an alternative to the RIB for applications that require an easily transportable, shallow draft, inflatable boat.Featuring heavy duty 1880 dtx Hypalon tubes, aluminum floors, lifelines, heavy duty rubstrakes, and performance speed tubes, the AF Series offers deck space and performance to satisfy a range of missions. From rapid deployment, assault operations, dive support, and rescue applications, the AF delivers versatility, durability, and performance. Designed to carry large payloads on a plane using lower horsepower, the AF range delivers unparalleled performance and maneuverability. Whether operating in open or shallow water, the innovative hull shape with incorporated speed tubes provides stability and tracking ability through tight turns at high speeds.Speed tubes make the difference delivering the AF's signature performance characteristics. In addition to providing the needed lift for the boat to plane at low speeds with full loads, the speed tubes provide stability through tight turns. When the boat goes into a sharp turn at speed, the flow or water travels under the exterior membrane of the speed tube and flows directly into the interior of the second tube trapping the flow of water which thereby anchors the boat into the water to prevent slipping and reducing the likelihood of capsizing.
