Zodiac Milpro inflatables are rugged and tough, quick to deploy and fast on the water. They use low engine power, are light and virtually uncapsizable, making them the safest boats in their class. Able to plane with heavy loads, they can be packed into a bag for easy transportation. Their specific design for easy maintenance and repair keeps the mean time to repair cycle low and efficient.
Also, 90 % of all parts are interchangeable between the different Zodiac Milpro inflatable boat ranges, considerably reducing maintenance costs. Our four ranges of inflatable boats differ widely in design and capability so as to offer the right solution for specific requirements and fit various mission profiles and challenging uses.
Zodiac Milpro inflatable boats are generally off-the-shelf products, available ex-stock for urgent/emergency missions.
Zodiac Milpro introduced the first commercial RIB through its subsidiary Avon at the London Boat Show in 1971. Today Zodiac Milpro offers a wide range of semi-rigid boats from 4 to 12 meters. Hulls are made of aluminum or glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), or carbon-reinforced plastic.
Zodiac Milpro has developed various collar configurations from conventional inflatable tubes to foam filled tubes and D shape to fit on the different hulls designs. Inflatable collars are manufactured from heavy duty CSM / neoprene, polyurethane coated fabrics or can be fitted with Zodiac Milpro’s Durarib® foam systems.
Zodiac Milpro proposes different propulsion options: single, twin or triple outboard motors, or single or twin inboard diesel with water jet, stern drive or surface drives.
Considered to be the very finest craft of their type in the world, Zodiac Hurricane® RIBs are mission-specific and used by the most knowledgeable and discriminating operators, who demand the utmost workmanship and reliability in their boats. Many features found in Zodiac Hurricane® are unique and developed specifically for our Military and Professional customers.
We have developed several “turnkey” models based on historical contract definitions specified over the last 20 years. Turnkey configurations are fully defined, competitively priced, and faster to order and deliver.
They can be specified with aluminum or fiberglass hulls, inboard or outboard engine, and propeller or jet drives – all with removable air collars for rapid and easy maintenance, accepting either standard air or Durarib™ foam collars in conventional round shape but also D shape to allow more space on the deck.
Models larger than the Zodiac Hurricane® ZH-560 have under-deck fuel tanks, and models larger than the ZH-630 can be equipped with dive doors.
Our “turnkey” solutions are available in various mission specific configurations meeting the most common needs of Military and Professional users.
Hull design, seating arrangements and specific equipment provide the seaworthiness, the performance, the shock mitigation and low radar signature required to operate in a hostile maritime environment.
Search and Rescue Configuration
Deep V hull with jockey seats and self-righting capacities to provide stability, maneuverability and safety for SAR missions, ship or shored based.
Law Enforcement Configuration
Stand-up consoles and T-tops give crew protection while good buoyancy (inflatable or Durarib™ foam) ensures seaworthiness and hull protection to operate in a variety of marine environments.
Zodiac Hurricane® cabin boats are designed to accommodate a crew of 2 to 6 persons. Shock mitigation cabins and seats are also available to reduce crew fatigue and injuries.
Custom Hurricanes: We routinely develop custom solutions to meet a military’s specific need. With sizes ranging from 20 to 45 feet (6 to 14 meters) in length and dozens of unique Hurricane components, we can customize boats to perfectly fit a mission profile. From consoles, storage, seats, bolsters, cabins, diver doors,DuraRIB™ collars, auto-inflation, radar frames, and every electronic suite on the market, Milpro Hurricane Ribs are tailored to your needs. Order GRP or Aluminum hulls, inboard or outboard engines, stern, jet or surface-piercing drives, cabins, T-tops, or open deck space.
