African Cats now also builds her V-LITE Rib’s in vacuum epoxy infusion even lighter than before.
The V-LITE RIB weighs only 27 kilo’s complete for the size of 3.10 meter. The V-LITE RIB itself has a V-shaped bottom which results in a very stable RIB.
Lightweight Hypalon with an excellent UV-resistance is used for the tubes. For the bottom and transom, Twaron Aramid fibre, Kevlar, Divinycell foam and infused epoxy resin make a very strong, lightweight and stable structure.
The weight for a SAILING V-LITE RIB becomes 52 kilo. Carbon is used for the complete rig including split mast, boom, rudder, dagger board and dagger board casing. Further the RIB may be used without the sailing kit. An outboard can be used varying on the size of the RIB, for the 3.10 it is 10 Hp, for the 3.60 and 4.20 m version it is 15 Hp.
