Background

The Sarissa RIB range design has been the accumulation of a number of years design and development including help from expert racer Adam Younger to ensure a stable but fast stepped hull (top speed 70mph +) alongside Takis Samartzis who was responsible for the upper deck adding the touch of class which makes the Sarissa range look and feel top of the range.

The Sarissa RIB range comes with a proven track record and a manufacturer guarantee on both the hull and inflatable tubes. The performance hulls are based on the latest vented step technology and convex design, allowing for low fuel consumption using smaller outboards, but with safety in mind. The construction utilises high tech materials such as multidirectional fibres, Kevlar and Carbon. The tubes are manufactured using the highest quality hypalon sponsons with an optional carbon finish, which is both hard wearing, fade resistant and complements the modern stylish look of the range.
