Polaris RIB’s are designed for both open and enclosed water conditions. RIB’s are generally lighter and more maneuverable than conventional craft. Their lighter displacement allows greater speed and ease of handling.

Polaris RIBs are operated by Tour and Whale Watching companies around the world as they are the perfect choice for ocean ventures or touring through inland waterways.  The Polaris Rib can be designed and outfitted to suit your individual requirements or operational environment.
