A High-Performance RIB for Challenging Missions

If you plan to use RIBs in challenging and potentially dangerous settings, you need to know your boats will perform. At Fluid Watercraft, we designed the Patrol 780 with high expectations in mind. Our core team of ex-military aeronautical engineers designed this inflatable patrol and rescue boat to stand up to the extreme conditions you and your team face.

The strength and maneuverability of the Patrol 780 come from its construction. Its distinctive hull-shape design provides a softer riding experience to minimize crew fatigue, which is essential for safety at sea. Furthermore, its hull shape has removable lateral stabilizers and a floor system that allows it to carry up to twelve combatants in a variety of missions.

The Patrol 780’s hull shape also helps the boat get a large load on the plane, providing top-of-the-line speed and maneuverability in dangerous conditions, so you can count on it to perform well no matter what.

Common Applications for the Patrol 780

As an all-condition RIB, the Patrol 780 proves useful in a variety of commercial and non-commercial marine applications. However, it’s most often recognized as a military boat for Special Forces. Today, professionals use these rigid inflatable boats for:

  • Patrol and law enforcement
  • Search and rescue
  • Combat
  • Transporting personnel

Because the Patrol 780 can carry up to 2,220 pounds, it is capable of taking on almost any mission.
