Are you wondering what the best inflatable boats are?
You are in the right place for an answer: in this article, you will find some indications on how to orient your choice according to your needs and find the Joker Boat that best meets your requirements and preferences.
We believe that there isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” answer and that the best RHIBs are those that are most capable of satisfying the client’s personal needs. Follow us then, as in this article we will show you some options by presenting you with our most successful models:
Clubman, Coaster and Barracuda.
Clubman: our leisure boats for families, but also fishermen Sunny trips at sea with your family? Clubman is the range of Joker Boat’s inflatable boats that might suit your needs, even if you have one or more children: you can enjoy large spaces onboard and unprecedented stability. You will also find dimensionally comfortable sunbathing areas with raised tubular in relation to the walkway for increased safety.
Not just for families: the Clubman range is also designed for fishermen and boaters, thanks to its great versatility.
Coaster: a range of boats that are easy to use and guarantee stability
We designed the Coaster range to provide our customers with inflatable boats that are perfect everywhere and in any condition: trailerable, stable and easy to drive. Always!
These boats are an unparalleled guarantee and you can always put them to the test to see their incredibly high performance even in rough sea conditions. All models feature a minimal design and top-quality performances.
Hobbyists or professionals, it doesn’t matter: all fishermen will find the answer to their needs in the boats of our Barracuda range.
With maximum stability, ample space on board and effortless maneuverability, these inflatable boats are truly safe in every sea condition.
The main feature of the two models of the Barracuda range lies in their deck, designed to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of hobbyist or professional fishing.
All this without forgetting the modern and original design, especially given by the bow’s fascinating lines.
One of the main reasons people choose an inflatable boat for their trips/holidays at sea or the lake is the feeling of safety and stability that it transmits. In fact, it must be remembered that the boat is totally unsinkable thanks to the buoyancy ensured by the tubulars (divided into many independent air chambers) and by the hulls.
Thanks to the immersed tubulars and a larger wet surface, the navigability of an RHIB in the rough sea is way more stable than that of many boats.
The boat’s tubular thus represents a sort of fender that creates less worry during maneuvers, an important element for inexperienced drivers evaluating which RHIB they could choose.
Conversely, boats need fenders to avoid damage and protect themselves from shocks on the quay (for example, while docking for mooring).
Therefore, the only way to truly understand if an inflatable boat is the best solution for your needs is to try it out in the water!
How to handle your inflatable boat in rough sea
You can be sure that if your inflatable boat is reliable and in perfect condition, it can also be managed in a rough sea, especially if you choose a model design to withstand this type of condition. Joker Boat’s Coaster range ensures all these requirements.
As a matter of fact, the RHIB’s real enemy is not the rough sea but the wind. So let’s see what sea conditions can occur with an inflatable boat and how you should manage them.
How to navigate with a bow sea
In bow sea conditions, it is necessary to accelerate extremely gradually so as not to impact too hard against the waves and reach them by accelerating as soon as the crest has been climbed and you have reached the descending phase.
The latter is called the back of the wave. This means moving forward with a zig-zag movement, mascon-turning in the cable’s free zone without being overwhelmed by the wave’s crest.
How to navigate with the sea on the beam If the waves are rounded, we can feel a little more at ease compared to the rough sea, but it is also important not to be surprised by breakers.
If we are sailing areas with continuous surfs, it is better to look for gaps where the waves break less frequently and navigate with numerous pulls to the luff, keeping to the foamy areas that the breakers that have already passed keep behind.
How to navigate with a stern sea
Stern sea is deceptive: it looks like you can experience the most comfortable sailing while, in fact, it is the most dangerous since the breakers’ speed and strength cannot be perceived in this condition.
With its rational motion, the wave causes the stern’s speed to increase more than the bow’s.
This is what happens to three boats out of four: grading the speed while keeping on the back of the wave without climbing the crest is complex, and this navigation should require training on a calm sea to be ready to face a stern sea.
The quality of your inflatable boats is what makes the difference
Whatever rough sea conditions you might find yourself sailing in, it is always pivotal to choose an inflatable boat of excellent quality and able to ensure stability and safety.
Joker Boat was officially founded in 1979 by Giuseppe Aiello’s entrepreneurial adventure. Originally, his journey began with a brand named of EuroNauticSport a few years earlier. Specialising in small, fully hand crafted boats, EuroNauticSport was one of the first and most innovative nautical companies in Italy at that time.
CRAFTSMANSHIP OF GREAT QUALITY
The first boats built, were entirely hand-made and smaller in size. The technology behind these boats was restricted to tubes in hypalon texture and a folding, non-rigid, bottom complemented by a wooden floor or an inflatable keel. These boats still run today thanks to their high quality manufacturing after over 30 years. This principle of high quality is still maintained and characterises Joker Boat culture as a fundamental of our dogma.
Over 700 boats left the factory every year for two decades, but with the Clubman that number increased to 1000/1100 units per year. This was made possible thanks to the continuous development of the range to remain on top of market demands, but also to development new series and new models.
THE ITALIAN RHIB MARKET
The 80’s achieved a record in sales results thanks mainly to the Profi 250, 300, 450 and 520 models. This success sparked the fist of the success of inflatable boats in the Italian market, triggering the innovative explosion that today breaks into fascinating models focused entirely on customer. Thanks to the Clubman and Coaster brands the world fell in love with the Joker Boat brand.
The 80s marked the beginning for Joker Boat’s exponential establishment as a brand on the global market. With a more eye-catching and international remodelling of the brand, Joker Boat moved its first steps to become a success in the years to come. The 80’s and 90’s marked the brand’s great success with more than 1,000 boats produced each year.
Today, Joker Boat is a leader in listening to its customers and developing more and more “old” and new models. The customer remains at the center of the design of new models and always has the latest word about extravagance, practicality and layout on board.
