Nice to have / Need to have
Hypalon is a more expensive solution, and unfortunately, we cannot change that. However, we can look at the needs of Northern European RIB users, most of whom are not everyday users. The sun in, for example, Scandinavia is not the strongest, and therefore many choose to “settle” for a PVC pontoon. If one has a little eye for quality and production techniques, this solution can absolutely also be recommended – depending on the purpose and frequency of use. For example, 9 out of 10 BRIG boats sold in Scandinavia have a PVC tubes. They are still hand-bonded and of good quality that can easily withstand normal maritime hardships. But for the Search and Rescue team in Greenland and soldiers on missions in Africa, there is only one solution, and that is: Hypalon.
