2.3m / 7.6FT ISLAND INFLATABLE RIB (HYPALON) Aluminium Rigid Base, Australian Designed, Quality Build, Thermo Welded Seams

SKU: TRO230 Category:



The Island TRO230 TROPICS Hypalon Series is perfect for hotter Tropic regions like far north Australia. The Hypalon material is much more durable then PVC which also makes it the preferred range for commercial use. This TRO230 is smallest and lightest RIB in the Island range. Making it the perfect tender for small to medium cruisers / yachts. The rigid base is a double skinned FLAT Aluminium Floor. Making it more comfortable to stand on. White / Grey features will fit in while floating next to your pride and joy.

Island Inflatable boats are Australian designed using the latest “High Frequency Thermo Welding” (HFTW) Technics on all seams for durability against Australia’s harsh conditions. You’ll never have a Island Inflatable seam come apart due to heat or hot days due to HFTW.

It’s not only our manufacturing processes which makes Island Inflatables the #1 selling privately owned brand in Australia. It’s our unique features and attention to detail. Firstly all our boats are designed by “Island Inflatables”. Most brands you see online and in-store are boats purchased at trade fairs with brand names then placed on them.

Lets start with our materials. Island Inflatables use the heaviest grade of Hypalon material possible before going into the commercial grades used in the armed forces etc. Our grade is 1100 Denier / 0.9mm thickness.

All tubes sizes are oversized. This makes for a nicer riding boat. It’s more comfortable to be sitting on the side of a inflatable with larger tubes. It also creates a much drier ride.

A good way to see if a inflatable boat is a quality inflatable boat is by the tow rings located at the front of the boat. Island Inflatable boats use a large heavy duty Stainless Steel tow ring. Mounted on a equally large and reinforced mounting patch. Lesser quality boats will always use a smaller ring and patch with no reinforcing.

Island Inflatable Boats pay special attention to wear and tear. We use non-marking rubbing / wear strips around the side and under the keel.

All Island Inflatables come standard with a over-inflation valve. Fitted to help with hotter days and increased air pressure.

On the underside of each oversized tube we apply a 2nd layer of Hypalon material. This helps when dragging or launching your inflatable off a beach. It gives that extra layer of protection from any hidden rocks / shells etc.

Island Inflatables off set the grab / safety rope to the side of the tube instead of the top. This is so when sitting on the tubes your not sitting on a uncomfortable rope.

Whats stands out most with the Island inflatable boats is the unique and very useful Internal Rear Carry Handles. This was our first design feature we come up with. As having the handles on the outside rear tubes makes it impossible for 1 people to carry the boat. Also the handles are made from a much harder material which can easily scratch your cruiser / yacht. So it made perfect sense to move the handles from the outside of the rear tubes to the inside.
