36RHIB‐EC (ENCLOSED CABIN)


Mission

The 36RHIB-EC (Rigid Hull Inflatable Collar Boat—Enclosed Cabin) is a versatile platform designed to get your crew to its objective quickly and return home safely in the most challenging sea conditions. High-speed maneuverability, a shallow draft, and optional ballistic protection support a variety of riverine and coastal missions including Visit, Board, Search and Seizure (VBSS), Patrol and Surveillance, Search and Rescue (SAR) and Special Forces Operations.

Hull Design

The 36 RHIB-EC’s deep-vee hull provides predictable seakeeping and a comfortable ride. Quick planing characteristics and moderate bow rise provide excellent visibility from the helm. Forward lifting strakes and wide chine surfaces deflect spray, reduce frictional drag, and increase stability. The hybrid polyurethane foam collar with integral air bladders acts as a resilient fender, and is positioned to allow the vessel to heel over appropriately during high-speed turns.

Propulsion

The 36 RHIB-EC’s twin- or triple-outboard power, protected by a stern-mounted engine guard, provides both high operational speed and excellent evasive maneuverability, while increasing internal cargo volume. Waterjet power is also available for optimum shallow water capability, while both propulsion options are available with joystick systems for enhanced control and crew safety during demanding alongside evolutions.

Topsides

The 36 RHIB-EC features a climate-controlled enclosed pilothouse situated amidships, with optional ballistic panels providing enhanced crew protection and comfort.  Shock mitigating seating for two crew and four passengers is also available. Direct access is provided both to the open bow and to the aft working deck with side openings aft providing for rapid embark, debark and alongside boarding. Working decks are clear of obstructions with antennas, sensors and electronics mounted out of the way atop the deckhouse.
