125 years of experience and inventor of the inflatable boat, Zodiac Nautic offers products with exceptional durability and reliability.

Thanks to materials and manufacturing processes that are always at the cutting edge of technology.
The hull has a rot-proof polyester internal structure, made up of a grid of longerons and stringers, ensures a one-piece connection between the hull and the deck. This method provides overall strength and rigidity that is conducive to performance and resistant to all impacts experienced while boating, under all load conditions.

The tube, Zodiac Nautic has developed a unique industrial process for assembling its tubes to provide a perfect seal and a durable, almost indestructible quality of assembly, which is superior to the fabric's own strength, guaranteeing exceptional longevity and safety.

Quality tested, Zodiac Nautic carefully selects the materials that are used to build its boats according to a strict set of specifications that guarantee an exceptional standard of quality. Zodiac Nautic is probably the only manufacturer to put its new boats through a rigorous series of sailing tests in extreme conditions. Rest assured, your Zodiac boat will accompany you everywhere and for a long time.

The rib concept, the true 4 x4 of the seas, True Ocean adventurers, they are extremely popular with professionals and boaters who appreciate their exceptional marine quality and practicality at all times.

More seaworthy, the unique combination of a very low centre of gravity, a deep V hull and a stabilising/shock-absorbing tube gives the RIB speed and crossing capabilities in rough seas with unprecedented comfort and safety.
To try it is to discover a new level of performance. Experienced boaters are not mistaken

More capacity, The Zodiac boat has an exceptional weight/surface area ratio, providing such buoyancy that it can carry considerable loads: ideal for day trips with large numbers of friends or family and in complete safety!
The buoyancy distributed around the periphery, combined with a very low centre of gravity, ensures a level of stability that makes Zodiac boats almost impossible to capsize when loaded!
The tubes of a Zodiac boat have several compartments separated by watertight partitions. Thanks to its large air supply, the boat retains its buoyancy and remains conceptually unsinkable when fully loaded, even with a deflated compartment.

More practical, it is so easy to put it in the water or pull it onto the beach! The low weight of Zodiac boats allows it to be launched easily. Without a berth, RIBs are as economical as they are practical.
The tubes are permanent fenders and naturally act as shock absorbers. When manoeuvring on the water, if it comes into contact with the boat alongside or the dock at low speed, it will bounce off the obstruction without causing any damage.
