Introducing Generation 525, the new look of Luxury.
The Generation 525 is the result of countless hours of research, design and development. We designed this boat from the beginning to be superior in every way. From the Polyurethane Composite Micro Stringer System that results in a lighter smoother ride, to our proprietary jig and alignment system for better alignment and better handling, we’ve thought through every detail and then put our design through extensive testing to deliver a Deluxe RIB unlike any other.
Innovative Design. Superior Craftsmanship. Unsurpassed Quality.
Most all RIB manufacturers use basic plywood stringers to support the hull and top deck, Walker Bay incorporates a Polyurethane Composite Micro Stringer System in the floor which is lighter, stronger than wood and results in a smoother ride.
Where typical RIBs may have an air cavity between the hull and deck, Walker Bay bonds the hull and deck together using a unidirectional glass and a polyurethane stringer grid bonding system. This absorbs the impact from wave chop, makes the hull stronger and lighter and provides permanent positive flotation.
When it comes to quality control, we sweat every detail. Distortion and misalignment in a hull contributes to poor handling and stress cracks. Walker Bay creates a straighter and better riding boat by incorporating a proprietary “jig and alignment” process for the joining of the main parts so stress energy is distributed efficiently for a better handling and longer lasting boat.

If you want to be at one with the water, then check out Walker Bay’s selection of Stand Up Paddleboards. But if you want to sit back and enjoy a smooth ride, then this stylish Generation is for you. The extra deep V-hull is made for cutting through water. As well, the customized gas tank fits in the bow section of the keel, moving weight forward in the boat to further reduce the impact of rough chop and contribute to early planing.
There’s a time to paddle leisurely in a Walker Bay Rigid Inflatable Dinghy and then there’s a time to cruise in style and get to where you’re going in a smooth and timely manner. That’s where the Generation 450 DLX comes in. As this luxury tender propels forward, the concave chines deflect the water down, reducing spray and increasing hull traction for aggressive maneuvering. The stern of the hull, meanwhile, flattens out to facilitate planing at low speeds. Above the water, the sloping design of the bow step pushes the boat down at the front while the downward curve of the stern lifts the tail to increase stability and handling.
