24' RIB




The RIB 24' has been studied in a variety of deck configurations for different missions, with particular attention to crew protection and flexibility of operation ranging from river and costal patrol to interception and hit and run operations.


The stainless steel fuel tank of 200 litres is always positioned in the lowest and central section of the boat enhancing stability (by lowering the C.G.) and giving it some protection from fire arms. Optionally a rubber self sealing tank (aeronautical type) can be installed and the tank further protected with ballistic panels.


On dependence on the engine selection, the RIB 24' can be fitted with a rear cockpit to accommodate from two up to five operators, and the front cockpit can be built to fit both an operators cockpit and a front rotating seat or just an extended cockpit for carrying additional operators or equipment. The rear cockpit can be fitted with ballistic panels capable of sustaining either 9 Parabellum shots or the standard NATO 7.62 calibre. Due to the very low cockpit, the body of the operators is extremely well protected.


The inflatable collar is divide into 13 separate sections and its main purpose is to provide for additional exceptional stability and rough water handling, but as per all FB DESIGN boats, the RIB 24' is fully floatable and can navigate even without the collar. Substitution of the collar is immediate thanks to the rails to which it is attached to the boat.The reduced dimensions allow for up to two boats to be carried inside a 40' feet container (no trailer - one over the other), and to be easily inserted inside the C130 aircraft with trailer for transportation or without for air dropability.
