THE 250 CHASE centre-console and enclosed cabin 310 Targa models herald a range of new Protector RIBs featuring harder edges and a noticeably more modern, masculine appearance.

The 7.5m Protector 250 Chase, with a fuel capacity of 320 litres, can carry 250-400hp. Light, compact and easy to launch and tow, its advanced hull design performs effortlessly in rough water and manoeuvres easily in high traffic areas.

Inside, there’s a large dash for dual MFDs, modern styling, and room for a private toilet. With ample space on the deck and good weather protection from the bimini top, the new Protector 250 Chase is perfect for family fun or use as a yacht tender.

The 310 Targa is a 9m RIB with a fuel capacity of 495 litres designed for outboard power between 400hp and 800hp.

Suitable for commercial/patrol or recreational use, the tough and durable 310 Targa delivers a comfortable, predictable ride in any weather.

With full walk-through access to the bow, through-hull anchoring and a large hardtop with a glass windscreen, it also boasts an ergonomic seating configuration, twin bunks in the cabin and an onboard toilet.


The first 24 Protector 310 Targas, powered by twin 225hp V6 Mercury four-stroke outboards, will be used as patrol vessels by the America’s Cup management team. At the conclusion of the regatta, they will be handed over to regional Coastguard organisations.

Future models in the new Protector range will include 310, 330 and 380 Chase and the 330, 380 and 410 Targa models.
