Tideman HDPE workboats: strong alternative to RIB’s

When talking about hull material in boatbuilding, GRP and aluminium RIB’s with rubber tubes immediately spring to mind. Vessels made of quite vulnerable materials. Far from ideal when working in rough environments like rocky shores, shallow waters or arctic conditions.

This is exactly why we created our RBB: Rigid Buoyancy Boat. A RIB-like boat made from HDPE (High Density Poly Ethylene). A material that is light. durable and indestructible.

RBB vs RIB: no tubes

– No vulnerable tubes filled with air, but a hull made out of indestructible HDPE.
– 50% more deckspace, because we don’t use the gigantic airfilled tubes.
