The Zodiac Open 5.5, an adventure-style rigid-hull inflatable boat, was launched by Z Marine North America, a subsidiary of Zodiac Nautic Group, on June 22 in Charleston, South Carolina, where the American facility for assembling Zodiac RIBs is located.
The 17.7-foot (5.4m) RIB features an ergonomic cockpit, extra large cargo storage and reinforced deep V-hull with a tube diameter of 1.8 feet (0.57m), offering control and stability even in rough waters, according to a company statement.
“Its versatility and performance make this RIB well-suited for a variety of activities, including fishing, diving, water-skiing and cruising,” said Zodiac Nautic North America President Gary Durnan. “This is a real Swiss-Army knife of a boat.”
