What makes Rigid Inflatable Boats so popular is that they are stable, easy to maneuver, and fast. This makes it a good option for those who are looking to rent a boat that can quickly and easily take you where you want, and gild your holiday with water sports, diving, or a trip to discover the local area.
The speedboats' speed, safety, and easy maneuverability are something that has made it an obvious favorite among many. The structure of the RIB also means that it remains more stable even when crossing more turbulent water. Renting a rib boat is therefore a good way to do something extra with the holiday.
Thanks to the construction of the inflatable boat, especially with its air-filled edges and air tubes, it becomes more seaworthy, floats well, and withstands bumpy water while being a very light boat. It also makes it more energy-efficient and can be propelled well with reduced fuel consumption and smaller engines.
Because RIBs are so versatile, there are a number of different activities that you can do onboard when renting a RIB. The size and agility have also made rib boats especially popular when it comes to various water sports such as fishing and diving. When it comes to fishing, you can quickly get out to deeper waters, and new places to fish, as well as go into shallower waters due to its flat bottom. Even when diving, your rented rib boat can quickly get you where you want, and you can often dive directly from the rib boat.
More than anything else, the rib boats are known for being able to reach breathtaking speeds, such as 30 knots and all the way up to 70 knots. This makes them well suited for those who are looking for fast-paced rides among the waves. You can also rent larger rib boats with skippers who take you on fast-paced guided tours with astonishing speed. Something you can rent with friends and family to have a different experience.
A RIB is also a good alternative on the trip or family holiday for those who want to be able to get out during the day and discover more than the beach you are on. Many of the popular destinations also have more hidden beaches where you can go out during the day to discover the more hidden coves and hidden gems.
RIBs are best suited for day trips as they are not suitable for sleeping in and don't have the same amenities as other larger boats like motorboats, sailboats, or yachts. Renting a RIB during the day works well for those who want to discover new places quickly like hopping from beach to beach or from marina to marina. Or just as a way to get away from the large crowds on the beaches and enjoy being in the sun and swimming in the sea for a day. RIBs are also popular during specific activities, such as putting an extra special touch on events such as bridal showers and bachelorette parties.
Because we have RIBs available over large parts of the world we have varying prices depending on where in the world you are interested in renting a RIB. The price for renting a RIB also depends on whether the fuel is included, the year of manufacture, size of the boat, and whether you want to rent during high or low season.

In European countries, the price for a rib boat is usually between 150€ / day to 350€ / day.
The largest and fastest rib boats, which can reach the highest speeds, can cost around 1,000€ / day. These usually have seats for about 12 people, which means that you can share the cost of renting the boat with a large group.
Whether a driver's license or boat license is required to steer depends on the size of the boat and in which country you are in. In some countries, it is not possible to rent boats without having some kind of driver's license. But through our platform, you can often rent with a skipper, which is a popular choice. By renting a boat with a skipper, you can take advantage of their local expertise to find the best spots you might not otherwise have found.
