Lancer’s RK range are the ultimate on-water Support RIB. Designed in conjunction with Yachting New Zealand to excel in local conditions and be capably handled by all levels of experience.
The Lancer RK range was designed with three key factors in mind:
- Predictable and comfortable sea-keeping
- Ease of launch and recovery
- Ability to support water-based activities such as diving, sailing, SUP etc.
Lancer has a history of creating boats for supporting water activities and has previously supplied many organisations - including Yachting New Zealand’s Olympic Program and the Luna Rossa America’s Cup team. Lancer has set out to fill a gap in the market for a medium sized RIB that is easy to use for new operators while exceeding the expectations of the more experienced.
Further consideration has been given to keeping to boat as practical as possible. It has a clean deck free of cables and an arrangement which gives trouble-free access to all sections of the RIB. During feedback sessions with end users we discovered many operators want a boat that is robust so it can land on beaches or be left on concrete boat ramps while the trailer is retrieved. Lancer has coupled its legendary hypalon tubes with 5mm marine grade aluminium to deliver on this requirement.
Please find technical specifications for the RK range at the bottom of this page.
Lancer’s range of Aluminium and Fibreglass RIBs are designed to meet the rigours professional operators place on their equipment.
Lancer has a history of providing fit-for-purpose boats in commercial and defense applications, used in the extremes of environment from the tropic to arctic. Our boats have proven their reliability in some of the harshest environments around the globe in highly demanding roles.
Operational success is a key factor when selecting a Rigid Inflatable Boat and Lancer has both commercial "off-the-shelf” (COTS) and custom RIBs engineered to meet a wide range of roles. This ensures that no matter the application, Lancer has the product to suit.
Lancer’s full in-house design capabilities allow for custom designs. Typically these are based on existing proven hulls from our range, but Lancer has a long track record of completing new designs to suit various requirements.
