Zodiac, New Law Enforcement RIBs

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

Zodiac of North America, Inc., is launching their new Zodiac Enforcer line of RIBs tailored to the needs of marine law enforcement agencies. The Enforcer series was first displayed to the public and law enforcement customers at the Miami International Boat Show this month.

"Our military and Coast Guard customers have long understood the performance advantages of Zodiac RIBs and Zodiac Hurricane RIBs. What we needed for law enforcement was a vessel that could deliver these same characteristics, but at the price point of a production-built boat," said Steve Seigel, Vice President and General Manager of the Zodiac Military and Professional Products Division. "We achieved this with the Enforcer line by distilling the options down to build the quintessential law enforcement boat. Agencies can still customize their electronics and communications packages, but the basic boat is a common platform."

The inflatable collars on Zodiac RIBs permits a DeepV hull to run the length of craft. This allows the Zodiac Enforcer to slice through the water with less of the up and down action that contributes to operator fatigue. They also provide a safe and stable boarding platform. Finally, the lightweight design significantly reduces fuel consumption.

The Zodiac Enforcer line will be manufactured at the Zodiac factory in Summerville, SC.
