Restock: NSW RHIB
About the NSW RHIB:
The first commercial Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat was introduced at the 1969 London boat show. Development began in 1964 by the Royal National Life Boat Institution and then patented by Admiral Desmond Hoare. By the mid to late 1970’s, the Canadian Coast Guard were using them and today are used throughout the world. RHIB’s are used by civilians, Law Enforcement, Coast Guards and military rescue operations. Anyone enlisted in the US navy may sign up to be part of a Special Boat Team and participate in VBSS (Visit Board Search Seizure).
The NSW (Naval Special Warfare) RHIB in particular is used by the US NAVY SEALS mainly as a quick means of insertion and extraction. It’s twin diesel engines can reach speeds exceeding 45 knots, has radar, GPS, IFF transponder (identifies friend or foe), secure communication and is 11 meters long.
