If your organization demands exceptional longevity, a soft ride, a stable platform and one of the most seaworthy hulls for its size, the Almar by North River Boats RAIV if precisely the working vessel you need. The RAIV (Rigid Aluminum Inflatable Vessel) is the perfect blend of a heavy-duty, welded aluminum hull and, depending on size, a five or seven-compartment polyurethane tube assembly built to last with minimum maintenance.
The custom made tubes are puncture and UV resistant, featuring heavy-duty fendering where it counts, pressure relief valves and an ease of installation. All seams are welded and taped to enhance durability and airtight integrity with heavy-duty rub rail and “D” ring patches for adhering lifelines. All tubes are tested to double working pressure and over-pressure relief valves are installed to prevent damage.
To meet our customers’ specific needs, Almar by North River Boats offers the popular RAIV design in full foam collar as well as a hybrid air/foam version. Every RAIV hull is constructed with marine grade aluminum (5086) and filled with waterproof foam so even when the tube chambers are deflated it’s virtually unsinkable. All seams and joints are welded continuously on both sides ensuring strong, trouble-free service for years to come.
We build each RAIV boat one at a time and we will gladly customize a model to meet your unique requirements. Customizing can encompass a full cuddy cabin, T-Top, center console and power choices of outboard, inboard, gas or diesel I/O or jet power.
