Innovative Design

The VPD tube is varied in both diameter and shape along the length of the boat to provide optimum performance and to act as a Fender with a protective rub rail when alongside other boats or docking. The Walker Bay® RID offers increased cockpit space and dry comfortable seating compared to inflatables of the same size, while maintaining the security of a durable rigid hull.

How it works

With a light load and moderate seas, the VPD tube does not engage and the bow cuts gracefully through the water. In heavier seas or as the load shifts, the VPD tube engages as required for lateral stability.

Exceptional cockpit space

Because of the large rigid hull structure with external tubes, the RID has exceptional cockpit space for a small boat. Three comfortable seats provide secure internal seating for all passengers and greater cargo capacity. The lapstrake hull of the Rigid Dinghy is designed to cut through water producing less displacement and drag, resulting in a boat that rows easier and straighter. What’s more, the Hydro Curve Oar blades are super light to reduce swing weight and rower fatigue and are curved to maximize rowing efficiency.
