This exclusive design was developed in Sweden, and is based on a double step ventilated racing hull. It has longitudinal underwater steps to reduce friction, and offers excellent sea-keeping, efficiency, speed and safety in all conditions.

With weather protection for extended day patrols, it is fitted with restraining style seating for 2 operators and 2 passengers. Forward of the console is a large open deck space for containing arrestee’s, troop or cargo transfer, carrying SAR liferafts, or fitted with fixed or removable seating. Optional Shock mitigating seats are also available, to decrease the risk crew injuries at high speeds.
There is a gun-mount forward, which can be supplied with adaptors to suit a range of weapons. It is also supplied with a roll-up, or fold-down swim ladder for divers.

The X2K RIB is designed to fit in a standard 40 foot cargo container, ensuring fast, easy, safe and cost efficient domestic or global transportation.

CONSTRUCTION

From the latest Vacuum Resin Infusion process, using all vinylester resin and PVC closed cell composite sandwich construction, with multi-directional, non-woven reinforcements, and Carbon Fibre strengthening on the full-length stringers. The core increases panel stiffness and reduces the weight usually associated with solid GRP boats. This offers great strength and robustness in the event of a collision.

RIB SYSTEM

Made by Henshaw Inflatables Ltd, who are one of the leading manufacturer of Inflatable collars to RIB builders both in the UK and throughout the world. The X2K RIB Collars are manufactured using heavy duty 1,500 g/m² Hypalon© coated fabric, which is considered the best fabric for inflatables. There are 9 separate compartments for added safety, with automatic pressure relief valves.
If required the boat can be fitted with an optional Self Righting Bag System.

ENGINES & STEERING

For simplicity of maintenance and operation the boat is powered by twin outboard motors, with counter-rotating propellers. It is capable of 50 knots with 2 x 250 hp.
The steering system is hydraulically operated and can be upgraded with Power assist if required. All controls are clearly visible and accessible.
