The latest addition to the range at Silverdale RIB manufacturer Seafarer Inflatables bridges the gap between the 380R and larger 550R in its four-model SF series line-up.

This New Zealand designed and manufactured range features the exclusive hot-air welded ‘Dual Seal Construction System’ developed by Neil Curtling who has 30 years’ experience in the RIB industry.

The 430R has a 4mm powdercoated alloy hull fitted with polyurethane tubes made from the latest, high-tech European TPU fabric. U-Dek non-skid flooring is provided throughout.

The 430R sports an alloy jockey console that is lighter than fibreglass and can be modified easily to add seating. Fuel tank storage is in the bow, along with the anchor and warp, while an easily modified, custom stainless bow roller is lighter and lower in profile than fibreglass equivalents. The 4.3m boat weighs 300kg and the recommended horsepower range is 30-50hp.
