Sea Water RIBs


Sea Water RIBS. A love for tradition, but with a glance to the future, bringing innovative design and remarkable handling and safety together in one harmonious vessel

Sea Water RIBsSea Water, no better name for a boating brand. It encapsulates the true nature of the shipyard: not just a boat. Behind this name there’s a way of living on the sea, a true lifestyle. Boats made by sea people, aiming to deliver exceptional cruising with the best safety and comfort standards.

Sea Water came to life in 2004, in Cagliari, Sardinia’s capital, in Italy, when the original ‘crazy’ idea of the two founders, Swann Usai and Maurizio Manca came to fruition and its exciting journey to reality started.

Sea Water is based smack in the middle of the Mediterranean, which might seem unimportant, but there’s a very significant detail there. Living on an island means knowing the sea well and that is why Sea Water makes inflatables with the awareness and experience of people who know what really counts: a reliable, safe and performing RIB, made by sea-going people for sea- going people. That’s the starting point of the Italian handmade boating brand, which now counts more than 30 skilled workers, over 12000 square metres of production departments, and a robust order book.

The brand range consists of four production lines: three inflatables – Smeralda, Phantom and Ghost range, and one entirely rigid, the Kymera range from 15 to 53 feet of length. The main characteristic of these boats is the hull, which guarantees the same performance in soft and hard sea conditions without sacrificing safety, comfort and style. When riding the waves, the comfort of the passengers remains steady.

The production process is carefully monitored by experienced professionals; boat users, not just boat builders. Starting from the construction of the GRP hull which is specifically designed to enhance the feeling of sound handling and comfort. All this translates into outstanding reliability, comfort and exceptional maneuverability.

Secondly, the adoption of high diametre inflatable tubes gives the boats the stability and safety they need while picking up guests or carrying supplies for the main yacht, as well as during the most challenging turns in rough seas.

When looking at the deck, the essential lines catch the eye of the observer and that’s because all the spaces are designed in harmony for onboard liveability. No space is wasted and nothing is missing for a complete set-up that can be upgraded with many additional accessories.

Large storage lockers, fore and aft, can be topped by spacious sunbeds, in a leisure boat configuration, or they can provide extra seating, if you need to transport guests or crew members.

The purity and simplicity of its lines and design can evolve to meet the needs of the owner and mothership. Not only in terms of the virtually infinite custom colour schemes available, but also a modular deck layout for seating, driving and storage, all the way up to tailor made solutions for on board electronics for navigation, domotics, infotainment and monitoring boat systems. Your tender, the way you want it without compromising safety and reliability.

In terms of reliability, robust construction characteristics mean that every Sea Water RIB is capable of managing prolonged, heavy- duty use and endless hours of navigation without little or no maintenance.

Sea Water’s range starts out with the 18’ Smeralda 180, which can be powered up to 115HP. The next model up is the Phantom 230. Growing in size, we move up to the Phantom 260, 280 and 300s, 26’, 28’ and 30’ in overall length, respectively.

The brand’s new model is the Ghost 320, which is the smallest cabined model of the entire range. Within its 32 feet, it has an extremely spacious deck and a welcoming under-the-console cabin, with a bathroom and double bed option, as well as lot of interesting accessories.

At the high end of the maxi-RIB range, there’s the Phantom 400, available in a cabined or open deck version, with a bathroom as a standard feature and which can be completely customised in both configurations.

The flagship of the range is the truly magnificent Phantom 500: a 50’ cabined RIB, with a spacious bedroom and a bathroom under the deck, with two big living areas on bow and stern.

Closing Sea Water’s offer, there are two more models: the Kymera 43 and 53. These innovative craft represent a completely reinvented concept of inflatable. They are made as rigid fibreglass that maintain traditional structural concepts with foam filled air chambers on the sides and hull, delivering impressive stability.

No two Sea Water RIBs are the same, ever and they never will be.
