At the first day of the International WorkBoat Show in New Orleans, La., Brunswick Commercial & Government Products (BCGP) introduced an 8.5-meter aluminum RHIB.
 
A first of its kind for the Company, the 850 Aluminum Impact RHIB is the introductory model from a line-up that features five variants ranging in size from 7.5-meters to 12-meters.  Designed for the commercial and government marketplace, BCGP will market the new line-up to domestic law enforcement agencies as well as militaries worldwide.
 
"We are happy to introduce the Aluminum Impact RHIB line here at the International WorkBoat show," said Jeremy Davis, BCGP director of sales. "This international stage provides us the opportunity to showcase the new aluminum boat's capabilities to serve in law enforcement, military and other commercial applications."
 
The aluminum hull is a mill-finish welded structure designed by BCGP, fabricated by a local aluminum contractor and assembled at the Company's Edgewater, Fla. headquarters. Notable features include dual 350 HP Mercury Marine Verado outboard engines, a hard-sided urethane-coated polyester fabric collar system by CPI, shock mitigating SHOXS Seats, a Raymarine electronics package and a Boatmaster heavy duty aluminum trailer.
 
"The new aluminum RHIBs are an exciting addition to our existing product line-up because we now have the ability to offer customers a one-stop shop experience," said Davis. "By providing both aluminum and fiberglass solutions, we can help government agencies have more commonality in their fleets, allowing for maintenance optimization and interoperability for officers in the field."
