At Airship Ribs, our goal is to transform nearly every waterborne activity with the world's most advanced rigid inflatable boat... But if you really want to know where it all began, Airship RIBs were dreamed up by three veterans of the high performance catamaran racing circuit: Jim Dyke, Steve Neeley, and Dominic Visconsi, Jr. This engineering-driven partners continue to oversee the construction of our boats on the shore of Lake Erie.
Their newest advancement is our incredible Airship 350, which can reach 800 MX HP while enjoying a top-tier luxurious and fully customizable ride.
Airship RIBs combine the inherent advantages of rigid inflatable boats with state of the art composite technology and the improved efficiency of a stepped hull design. The hull and deck are vacuum-infused with vinyl ester resin, eliminating voids and creating a far superior resin-to-glass ratio. The use of moisture resistant DIAB foam coring creates a dramatically stronger, lighter, and more rigid structure than traditional laminates.
If you think you know RIBs, it’s time to expand your horizons.
