The distinctive hull shape with an “axe” or plumb bow has several benefits. It increases sea keeping through a sharper entry and gives greater waterline length relative to the length of the hull. By clever tube design, the bow stem is further increased help with wave penetration, steering and water deflection.

The RK has a huge interior with a full-width floor, many RIBs set the floor down into the hull for production costs. With the Full-width floor comes a greater work surface which is stable and safe.  A full frame structure below this gives a strong stiff hull and floor.

The boats feature many advancements with extended fixed trim tabs for better load carrying, speed and hole shot. The Transom is configured with a pseudo ladder for recovery of personnel from the water. A transom sump clears surface water before exiting it through the high volume scuppers.

The Range has numerous layouts and propulsion options with designs for outboard and inboard. While each boat has standard layouts there is flexibility to customise to meet your requirements.
