The ideal yacht or powerboat tender, capable of carrying up to five passengers and their gear in safety and comfort, the Falcon tender range by BRIG has proven popular all over the world.
The Falcon range from BRIG is versatile, sturdy and stylish.
Equipped with a solid rigid hull (deck) for use as tenders, as well as for recreation, these compact, dynamic little RIBS are easily stowable and take to the water with superior buoyancy. The strong fiberglass hull in combination with inflatable tubes delivers a smooth, dry ride.
Available in sizes ranging from 3m to 3.6m, the Falcon tender range boasts a medium V rigid hull or deep V rigid hull in the case of the 360 model, anti-skid deck surface, bow stowage locker, one-way drain system, oars and oar stowage, three towing bow rings, four built-in davit lifting points, carrying and safety handles, wooden seat, foot pump, repair kit, accessories bag and user’s manual.
There is also an array of optional extras, such as bimini to customise your RIB.
Australian distributor, Neil Webster, describes the Falcon range as 'the smallest, lightest centre console on the market, excellent value and very durable', and says Sirocco Marine will have 'show specials' during the Sydney boat show to make them every more appealing.
'The Falcon 300HT, unlike its competitors, has electric start, electronic tilt, and in the new model, nose cone/bow step with nav lights, fibreglass end cones and a back rest on the seat.'
Made of superior Hypalon material, they are tough and resilient, standing up to the harsh UV exposure of our climate, while being gentle on your boat’s teak decking!
They accommodate four people, and the 360 model takes five, but they are also manageable enough for one person to manoeuvre. Complete with Honda engine, prices start from $14,000.
Sirocco Marine South will have the largest display of Rigid Inflatable Boats on display at the upcoming Sydney International Boat Show, 31 July to 4 August 2014.

In fact, with more than 25 models in the BRIG range, Sealegs amphibious vessels, Williams Jet tenders, the unsinkable Boston Whaler boats and a selection from the Sirocco brand, Sirocco Marine South will occupy nearly 700m², making it the largest single exhibitor at this year’s show.
'Sydney is always an important show for us,' says Australian brig distributor, Neil Webster, who with his team from Sydney, the Gold Coast, Perth and Melbourne will be on hand at SIBS to meet clients and answer any questions about the brands they represent.
'We will also have the founder and CEO of BRIG, Sla va Rodionov at the show for the launch of the Falcon 360Ht.'
A massive selection of RIBs and whalers will be on show at Sirocco Marine, Stand 354 in Hall 3 and the adjoining stand 201 at the Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island, the temporary home of the boat show for the next three years while the new Darling Harbour Convention & Exhibition Centre is being built.
