Gommoni - RIB design
Akesdesign has a great
knowledge on design of Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBS).
As for Boat Designs,
the RIB design is focused to join a comfortable deck layout with hull shapes
that give comfortable and enjoyable ride in any condition. . The stability
afloat is due to well dimensioned tubulars that mantains stability
transverse and longitudinal evan if the central rigid hull is flooded . The
tubes are designed to touch the water with people inboard but slightly touch the
water surface to avoid fouling. Naturally, all these features depending on
The RIB design is
optimized for operational requirements : at the same time can ben developed a
rib suitable for charter, tender, classic leisure users , high-performance
demanding users, prefessional users, with a deck as efficient and comfortable as
possible and naturally with a nice shape, never common or coarse.
For the Rib design,
the starting project is developed with cad 3D and improved by 3d CAD structure
analysis (FEM) and stability and hydrostatic softwares , included hydrodinamic
There are a lot of
chances for construction materials: polyester resins, vinylester, epoxy ,
sandwich, for hand layup or vacuum infusion, plywood - epoxy with glass
reinforcements, aluminum alloy : the design is focused and improved for each
material . The hull model and molds can be built by hand or cnc machines.
Here below our latest
designs: all these achieved the requirements and had a great feedback from the
Vento 500 - 5 m rib,
suitable for a beautiful day at the sea but number one of his category in rough
and high sea state ; champion of fuel savings and mininum plane low speed.
Design optimized by CFD, fibreglass built , for hand layoup and vacuum infusion;
although has a low weight (250 kg) , it has the same hull thickness of common 7
m ribs . The boatyard VENTO-NAVIS is starting to build even a new 6 and 7 meter.
Falkor boats are designed to excite and appeal to all fans of RIBs, along with those who have yet to encounter the pleasure of this type of vessel. By using the experience of the past and the technology of the future, the Falkor is a fusion of attractive design with economical fuel consumption and the ability to navigate rough seas.
CAB Silverado 13.7:
built by the shipyard Nautica Cab
with the aid of the most advanced technologies like the five axis CNC
milling machine for the hull and the deck and the infusion.The project of this RIB is characterised by the
combination of a hull perfectly fitted for the sea with an elegant and
refined deck absolutely comfortable and luxurious.
5 (tender), 7m, 8.5 m, 14 m,
based on the innovative HFD hull and
the design has been carefully studied, in order to improve all
the aspects concerning dryness, trim, performances, comfort during navigation
and, last but not least, aerodynamic resistance, which is always
neglected in the inflatable boats category. The structure has been analyzed by
means of FEM simulation softwares, in order to guarantee a remarkably
lightweight and at the same time considerably sturdy construction.
