Pirelli RIB’s are the next level in Quality, Performance, Safety and Refinement. This culmination of crucial characteristics delivers an outstanding experience not just to the skipper but to everyone onboard. With such a wide range of Jet, Outdrive and Outboard driven RIB’s between 3 and 19 metres in length there is most probably a RIB to suit your requirements. There is also long list of customisations available on each model of Pirelli so you can have a truly one or kind boat that is tailored to suit your every need.
T Line is the luxury line of PIRELLI tenders, designed for maxi yachts. They can be fitted with either inboard or outboard engines and the T45 can be fitted with Jet Drive. T Line tenders have a reduced height to fit into yachts’ garages, combining practicality with the pleasure of a high-performance and safe driving experience. Attention is paid to the smallest detail, from boarding ergonomics to finest components for a total comfort under the sun or through the sea breeze.
Designed for delivering a comfortable and safe driving experience the S-Line of PIRELLI tenders, featuring the SCOOTER logo also used to identify PIRELLI tires for high performance sports scooters, is born to provide the upmost in diversity, practicality and performance Equipped with a wide range of outboard engines, this is the ideal tender. All materials maintain the same quality standards of the larger boats in the range and customisation options make each of the S Line unique.
The J Line deliver Jet driven tenders with fast delivery of power and smooth handling. The Jet Tenders are fitted with ROTAX engines delivering not just a high-power output but reliability and parts availability too. ROTAX have been producing engines since 1920 and a century later they produce a wide range of engines for Jet Skis, ATV’s and Small Jet Boats.
Pirelli have been developing Rigid Inflatable Boat technology for over 50 years therefore they are not just building boats, but they are building on five decades of experience and cumulated knowledge. Pirelli don’t just know what they are doing, they understand what they are doing as they have pioneered most of the processed and refined all of them.
One example of this is the heat welding technology used in the place of the glue that is used on many other RIB’s. Stitch and glue construction are much cheaper and much faster than heat welding however it is not as strong, and it comes at the cost that it will fail most probably within 10 years. When you join sections of Hypalon by heat welding you are making all of them into one tube as opposed to sections joined together. This delivers a stronger, safer and longer lasting boat.
With Pirelli being pioneers of inflatable product technology they have developed a high quality UV resistant material to ensure that your RIB lasts and unlike many alternatives it will not become significantly weaker just from taking it out on those sunny days you want to enjoy.
Stainless steel is one of the details that contribute to the quality feel of a boat and for that very reason Pirelli only use the highest quality Italian stainless steel. This ensures that the statement of luxury is never dulled. It also means that you are buying a boat made entirely in Italy.
Performance is one of the main reasons to buy a RIB and Pirelli understand performance. Pirelli pioneer tyres for high performance cars and making a fast RIB is surprisingly similar. Pirelli have the slogan “For when the water is your road but rubber is still your tire” this is because Pirelli know the optimum level of grip for something to be both fast and stable and the RIB design department working with Tecnorib are no exception. This is crucial in RIB design because you want to go fast but you also want everyone to be safe at all times. Another advantage of this stability is that a Pirelli RIB handles very well and delivers predictable and precise handling, we all like surprises but they have no place is steering. You can drive a Pirelli RIB with confidence and trust in the fact that it was built to the highest of standards and designed with the culmination of research from over 50 years of experience.
Pirelli RIB’s are for the person who appreciates quality, provenance, performance and safety. Why compromise when you can have the best?
