A world-acclaimed boat builder since 1896, Zodiac knows about quality and how to construct a truly great boat. Today's Zodiac boats are built to a high-quality performance standard achieved by no other builder in their class. While other RIB makers have come and gone, Zodiac has worked many years to perfect hull design and engineering characteristics. Visit our Zodiac History page.
Another reason Zodiac stands above the rest of inflatable brands!
You can give a new look to your Zodiac boat after many years of use, with another color of tube. Or you can easily change it if your tube has been damaged. If you have just bought a second-hand Zodiac boat, you may want to change the tube for a new color. It’s an exclusive patented technology.
The Chicago Boat Show had many boats but two favorites were definitely the Zodiac 6.5 Open and the all new Zodiac Medline 7.5. Take a video tour with Bob from Zodiac and Mark from Reed Yacht Sales and explore both these awesome ribs!
Zodiac Boats has been the industry leader in Rigid Inflatable Boats since their introduction in 1896. They are a leader in engineering and deliver the best performing RIB's on the market. There is truly a difference in the ride of a Zodiac over other RIB's and fiberglass boats.
Zodiac's Performance and Quality Characteristics include:
Zodiac is the world leader in inflatable boats. Back in 1934, when Pierre Debroutelle – Zodiac’s brilliant engineer – designed the prototype of an inflatable 2-seater kayak, the company could never have imagined that it was opening the door to a market that would expand enormously with the dawning of the leisure society. Pierre Debroutelle came up with a new, U-shaped prototype, comprising two side air chambers joined by a wooden dashboard. This was the true forerunner of the modern inflatable boat, leading to many future pleasure craft. Since then, Zodiac has continually developed its boats, firstly for the military market, then – in the 1960s – for pleasure crafts, to satisfy the public’s demand for sporting motorboats. The PRO OPEN is one of Zodiacs latest – it has a brand new look after a complete new design. But it still has all the features that made Zodiac the world leader for more than 75 years.
