Sirocco Marine will have the entire range of BRIG "Rigid Intelligent Boats" – a whopping 26 models – on display at the 2018 Sydney International Boat Show, making it one of the largest exhibitors at this year's show and certainly the largest selection of RIBS at SIBS.

With a RIB for every on-water application, from weekenders and day boats to practical tenders for your yacht, BRIG is the highest selling RIB brand across Europe, and the number one brand in Australia, Sweden, Holland, Finland and the UK.

Entirely designed and built in Europe by an expert team of designers and engineers (including ex-military aeronautical engineers) for close to 30 years, BRIG RIBS use top quality materials including superior ORCA Hypalon from France (not PVC), Italian steering wheels, fiberglass hulls and Silvertex UV and water-resistant upholstery fabrics from the UK.

BRIG continually invests in R&D and is renowned for its cutting-edge techniques and fabrication by hand to ensure the stability, performance, durability and longevity of every boat.

Sirocco Marine is Australia's largest RIB distributor with a national network of dealers and a full range of boats on display at their showrooms, offering industry-leading service, support and warranties.

RIBS are enjoying a massive rise in popularity, as sole boats, day craft to complement larger motor yachts and tenders for all kinds of vessels. They are lightweight, extremely buoyant, safe, rugged, the tubes ensure a fender-effect that won't damage other boats and they can access the most remote beaches, arriving right up on the sand.

And BRIG RIBS are crammed with standard features other brands consider extras, such as swim ladders, grab handles, LED lighting, Seadeck teak-coloured flooring, ergonomic consoles, large windscreens and plenty of storage.

BRIG RIBS boast highly-efficient semi-V or V-hulls, wide beam, flat flooring, extended tubes with sturdy fiberglass end cones, and centrally positioned fuel tanks for optimal weight distribution, delivering an unrivalled smooth, dry ride.

BRIG's three lines are Falcon, Navigator and Eagle. Eagle is the premium range, led by the BRIG's flagship, the Eagle 10 – a sporty, spacious and feature-filled cruiser that comes complete with seating for up to 20 people, a convertible table and sun deck, sink, fridge/stove, stern swim platform with folding ladder and outdoor shower kit, and a cabin with double bed.

The Sirocco Marine team will be on hand at SIBS 2018 to answer all your questions about the BRIG range and match you with the model to suit your boating lifestyle, whether that's as a support vessel for regattas, ship to shore tender, a trailerable day boat for the family, or well-equipped platform for fishing, diving, towing and exploring.

Sirocco Marine have the full range of BRIG RIBS, a selection of Williams Jet Tenders including the new 280 Williams Mini Jet and Sirocco models on show: Stand 300, Lower Level, International Convention Centre Sydney.
