X-Craft presents the 8.0 & 9.0 superyacht tenders
X-Craft is a company that symbolizes passion for boatbuilding and excellence. With this passion, comes a commitment to deliver the best in luxury and performance RIB’s. X-Craft believes that a RIB should always be able to withstand the roughest of conditions in comfort, without making any concessions to its performance capabilities. All materials and products undergo continual refinement in order to achieve the best.
The X-Craft Design Studio and Naval Architect Simonis Voogd has brought this to the forefront with two designs that offers the perfect balance between style, functionality and performance. Every product that makes up an X-Craft RIB is brought together and designed to act in an ergonomic configuration. The performance itself sets new standards and benchmarks in theindustry.
Each X-Craft RIB goes through a vacuum infusion process (VIP) for its laminated parts. This process not only draws benefits for operating under a clean and efficient working environment, but also brings performance and structural gains for the customer as well. The vacuum infusion process dramatically reduces the amount of air gaps that are typically left within the structure. With higher glass-to-resin ratio, the weight of the structural parts is reduced as much as 30% compared to the standard production open mold methods of lamination. Consequently, the parts are stronger and lighter which produces a faster and more fuel efficient boat.
The production of each X-Craft RIB relies heavily on precision engineering. All aspects of the design are computer programmed into 3D files. This allows X-Craft to utilize a water jet cutting machine to produce a variety of components, hull sections, bulkhead, stringers and other parts within the exact tolerance required. The hull sections (bulkheads and stringers) are made out of special reinforced construction material that is stronger, more flame retardant, more sustainable and 40% lighter than laminated wooden parts. All of the materials used in the construction are of the highest quality, selected with an eye for detail, maintenance and longevity.
The craftsmanship of our skilled artisans ranges in all disciplines of upholstery, lamination, electrical, mechanical, engineering and design. But the passion for building the best quality RIB’s is what drives everyone at X-Craft to settle for nothing less. Quality is ensured on all levels of what can be seen, but more important what lies within.
The colors of the hull, tube, console, suspension seats and upholstery can be decided upon request.
