The 11.30 meter X2K Tender RIB is a development of an offshore racing boat from Sweden. And our recreational craft have the same focus on quality and performance as our military models. It has double ventilating steps to reduce friction, and offers sea-keeping, fuel efficiency, speed, and excellent maneuverability.
This model is soft riding and surprisingly dry, and features sunbed-sofas, and a console that can be outfitted with toilet and shower. It can also be fitted with a permanent canopy, or a stylish “T” Targa with a retractable awning. If used as an onboard Tender, the targa can be made to fold down, allowing it to be stowed in a boat garage with limited headroom.
The X2K RIB is also designed to fit in a 40 foot cargo container, ensuring safe and cost effective transportation.
Is from the latest Vacuum Resin Infusion process, using all vinylester resin and PVC closed cell composite sandwich construction. It is made of multi-directional, non-woven E glass layers, with Carbon Fibre strengthening on the full-length stringers. The PVC core increases panel stiffness and results in a structure that is lightweight, yet strong and robust.
