AB Inflatables is world renowned as the premier designer and manufacturer of inflatable boats for both the leisure and professional markets. AB Inflatables has a long established reputation for innovative design, superior construction, and outstanding customer satisfaction.
AB Inflatables has never shied away from the hard work of refining existing models, designing new inflatables, or retooling workshops to ensure that AB boats are truly the most celebrated watercraft on the market. This un-equaled pursuit of perfection has long distinguished AB from the competition.
Lammina is the first line of marine-grade, aluminum-hull inflatables to reach the U.S. market. The Superlight models, available in lengths 9,5 feet and under, feature a 2,28mm (0.090") aluminum hull. The rest of the line, available in lengths 10 feet and larger, sports a 3,17mm (0.125") aluminum hull. The transom thickness on models 8 to 10 feet is 3,17mm (0.125") and from models 11 to 16 feet is 4,7mm (0.190"). These tough, lightweight and durable aluminum hulls will resist abrasions from rocky shores, coral and sandy beaches. The innovative design of the Lammina series cuts through wakes and chop with far less pounding. The result is an exceptionally dry, stable and superior ride.
AB’s commitment to innovation remains at the forefront in the development and design of "Ultra" Light Aluminum Hull RIBs. Using the same high quality and Orca (CSM) five layer coated fabric tubes, we offer a less expensive version of our already popular AL series. The 3.17mm/0.125" thick marine grade aluminum hull and non-skid floor of the new unpainted 8, 9 and 10’ models combine durability with exceptionally reasonable pricing. The New ULs are the lightest and more spacious light series boats in the market. While the unpainted hull provides for minimum maintenance, the rubber non-skid floor adds comfort and safety. The UL series are the preferred choice among sail boaters around the world.
Each Alumina model is equipped with a heavy duty aluminum hull that will resist abrasions from rocky shores, coral and sandy beaches. The lightweight of this hull also means that Alumina boats claim excellent fuel economy and can reach cruising speeds with less horsepower.

Ventus - Latin - for "air" is our line of lightweight tenders. With their low weight to length ratio and balanced design, Ventus boats require very little horsepower to achieve astonishing performance and speeds. They sport a full V-shape hull that runs the entire length of the boat, providing exceptional tracking and stability. Ventus models are the only lightweight boats on the market with an additional air chamber built into the hull. This air chamber makes the Ventus line extremely safe and reliable, while providing a level non-skid floor to keep your cargo and passengers dry. Ventus boats make ideal tenders with plenty of room for carrying crew and provisions.
The Mares may be the most perfect, compact molded-in console yacht tender available. When it's time to get to the beach or that hidden fishing spot, the Mares is the go-to boat. This fiberglass sport console RIB also has the driest ride in the industry, making it equally perfect for carrying yacht owners and guests in style to the marina for an evening out on the town.
