WHO WE ARE
TecnoRib began life in 2005, with a mission to design, build and distribute a new range of rigid inflatable boats. For that purpose, TecnoRib entered into a trademark license agreement with Pirelli & C. SpA to apply the most prestigious trademarks of the Pirelli Group on these new inflatable boats.
It wasn't a simple challenge to elevate a product regarded until then as 'minor', in such a way as to reflect the prestige of a brand that is a synonym for quality and safety, as well as for performance and style. The first product launched, the 770, made its debut at the Pirelli Regattas in Santa Margherita Ligure, in May 2006.
Over the next fifteen years, the range was extended up to the PIRELLI 1900, which soon became an icon of style and performance. In 2015, the range of Jet tenders was introduced to offer the most demanding yacht owners an inflatable boat featuring the same production excellence found in larger projects.
Today, TecnoRib has the mission: to offer demanding-expert owners rigid inflatable boats in the range between 3 to 19 meters, built entirely in Italy and featuring high performance, maximum quality and fine design.
DESIGN, PERFORMANCE, COMFORT
Tecnorib's rigid inflatable boats are synonymous for performance and safety alongside a maniacal quest for comfort. Rigid inflatable boats are made for navigating, but also for enjoying your time spent at anchor, and their layouts are designed with this in mind, based on ergonomics and sophisticated detailing. In 2019 TecnoRib has developed a new concept of rigid inflatable boats with the release of the new PIRELLI 42 that involves both the elegance of the styling and the design work right from the outset, both in house and through excellent international partnerships such as Mannerfelt Design Team, that has been a partner for more than ten years now, which means the new 42 feet is a natural evolution of the previous models. Ocke Mannerfelt's racing experience is also behind the introduction of innovative hulls, with surprising results in terms of both performance and handling.
VERSATLITY AND FREEDOM
Minimum draughts and ease of use mean that rigid inflatable boats are the ideal way to explore every gorgeous piece of coastline, the most suitable means for reaching nearby and mid-distance destinations, and also the safest and most practical. Whether used as a tender for a mega yacht or as a faithful companion on summer outings, the key feature of a TecnoRib inflatable boat is freedom of use in all weather and sea conditions. Owners can personalise deck details, so their inflatable boat expresses their own tastes and unique lifestyle.
KNOW-HOW AND EXPERIENCE
From its base in Milan, TecnoRib has always drawn on the best expertise available on the market. Italy is a center of excellence in the recreational inflatable boat segment, developing extensive know-how embodied by skilled craftsmen and a unique system of top-end suppliers, recognised the world over. Experience and in-house expertise, together with prestigious partnerships, have supplemented and internalised this know-how. In the TecnoRib range, experience working with boats up to 19 meters in length is applied to all smaller models, while the same quality, materials research and design solutions are shared by all of them. The quality control testing procedure is unique in its category, as is its design. This could be one of the reasons why TecnoRib has been chosen as jet tender partner by the world's leading motor yacht group.
