EXPLORER 3.8 – 5.3

The Explorer is a commercial quality Rigid Hull Inflatable (RIB) which is designed and made entirely in Australia by SWIFT Marine.

The hull made from high tensile plate aluminium and is light and exceptionally strong and the tube is crafted from renowned ORCA “Hypalon” coated fabric.

The Explorer carries a large load with minimal horsepower, has a soft dry ride and is accurate and easy to drive. The transition from displacement to planing is imperceptible and the boat is extremely stable at all times.

This is an ideal weekend dive boat or runabout and has a tough 3 chambered tube and underfloor buoyancy.

The Explorer is the toughest and most capable small RIB on the market. Now in service with police, fisheries patrol and many commercial operations throughout Australia this is a well proven vessel built to last.
