Type: Air-Sport 7.0

Designer: Cockwells

Offering all the usual advantages of inflatable tubes to fender off against both mother ship and quayside, Air-Sport 7.0 combines the practical attributes of a RIB with all the style and luxury of an open limousine.

Key features of the Air-Sport 7.0, which accommodates eight guests and two crew, include a helm seat box, which could include an optional champagne chiller and height adjustable Bimini, and a fill-in cushion for the forward seating to create a snug area where guests can relax and put their feet up. There are boarding points from port, aft and starboard where a raising/lowering handrail aids safety while embarking by the helm console, and quick change tubes slide off for easy maintenance. Powered by a 250hp Yanmar diesel engine with stern drive, Air-Sport 7.0 is estimated to achieve a nifty 36 knots.
