eXtreme RIBs introduced the eXtreme 30, entirely constructed of prepreg carbon fiber using state of the art Formula 1 autoclave technology.

The hull is manufactured from 4 millimeter solid carbon fiber, in strength the equivalent of 6 millimeters of steel, but at only a fraction of the weight. The hull and other components of the eXtreme RIB are constructed out of prepreg carbon using autoclave technology for the best carbon-epoxy ratio.

The prepreg carbon fiber construction pushes the water away from the hull, lifting the boat out of the water. The eXtreme rib, due to its low weight, can be transported much easier than a standard RIB. The boat weighs less than 900 kg.

The eXtreme RIB is fitted with a rubber tube, Ullman seatings, an inboard Volvo Penta engine, a Garmin navigation panel with integrated motor management system, fly-by-wire gas throttle, GPS, VHF radio, Hella LED high-beam headlights, navigation lights, integrated rubber bow protector, mooring ropes, hoisting strops, a trailer, console cover and toolbox the eXtreme RIB is nothing less than a turnkey product.
