GENESIS G2. THE COMFORTABLE ALTERNATIVE TO ALUMINUM HULL RIBS
The latest Walker Bay Genesis G2 Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) is all new. The feature loaded Genesis second Generation G2 Console inflatable boat combines the award-winning Genesis HIMC Hull with a fully integrated injection molded Center Console unit. Together they create the ultimate small RIB, boasting superior comfort and exceptional performance. Bonus: there’s ample storage space for all your personal belongings as well as any inflatable boat accessories you want to bring along.
The custom-designed console offers more legroom for the driver, creating an exceptionally comfortable riding position. Integrated seat cushions and backrest, combined with the smooth ride of the award-winning Genesis RIB hull, give passengers the feeling of being in a boat that is twice the price. Genesis also keeps you dryer than any other rigid inflatable boat in its class. The combination of a wide-bow design and the curved V-hull keeps water down at the bow and not up in your face while at speed. The non-skid floor on a Genesis drains at all points to a bilge so there is never any water at your feet, keeping you and your belongings dry.
The new G2 version has tons of upgrades above and below the surface. The transom is anodized aluminum to be lightweight, incredibly strong and avoid corrosion. Tube construction is further perfected through improved transom point reinforcement, a new removable tube seal system and a thicker and sturdier rub rail. With so many upgrades comes a new look and colour, so the most advanced small RIB on the market looks even better.
All Walker Bay products are proudly designed and built in North America.

Injection Molded for a Better Hull
Genesis RIBs are manufactured using state-of-the-art injection molds. These enable the highest level of finishing and accuracy, providing detail features not possible with other manufacturing processes. High Impact Marine Composite (HIMC) resin is injected into the 82-ton steel mold with over 8,000 tons of clamp force. The result is a superior one-piece hull that is UV protected, lightweight, extremely durable and backed by an unprecedented 10-year hull warranty. No other hull can compare. What’s more, this type of manufacturing process is entirely environmentally friendly and 100% recyclable. More than just a smart choice, this is a light center console boat you can feel good about owning.
Replaceable Tube Design
With a hull that will virtually last forever, Genesis is the first RIB of its size, which offers you the option to replace your tube. The hardwearing Genesis hull features a removable tube design, offering ease of maintenance or future tube replacement. Finally, a boat for life.
Walker Bay is one of the only inflatable boat manufacturers in the world to offer a choice in fabric options: ORCA CSM or German Heytex Welded PVC. Built to last, both fabrics offer durable seams using a 3 layer process with all seams internally and externally butted for maximum reliability.
If price isn’t a concern, ORCA CSM is an excellent choice for warmer climates and/or avid boaters. Casual boaters, or those who live in milder climates, can reap the economical benefits of a PVC boat. Regardless of your choice, a boat cover is strongly recommended as it will protect your tube and prolong the lifespan of your boat.

If you enjoy spending sunny afternoons catching the wind, then check out Walker Bay’s selection of sail kits. But if you want to take charge and cut through water, then this is the ride for you. Designed around four-stroke motors, Genesis has exceptional maneuverability and handling. With its deep V-Hull design and High Impact Marine Composite (HIMC) construction, Genesis is able to cut through rough water while absorbing vibration for an incredibly smooth ride. Dynamic hull channels direct water flow to improve cornering performance at high speeds. These channels, combined with the integrated trim tabs, direct water flow downwards at the stern. This forces the bow down, which helps facilitate earlier planing. The Genesis Console adds further performance by moving weight forward in the boat and allowing for larger horsepower motors. The result is a faster, smoother running boat, which is quicker up on a plane. When it comes to performance, nothing compares to Genesis.
- V-Hull cuts through rough chop.
- HIMC Hull absorbs vibration for a smoother ride.
- Trim Tabs level boat at planing speeds for a more solid, stable ride.
- Trim Tabs direct water flow downwards at the stern, which helps facilitate earlier planing.
- V-Lift™ directs water flow higher on the engine propeller resulting in more lift.
- Aluminum Transom is stiffer and lighter than fiberglass, transferring more energy from the motor into forward thrust.
- V-Lift™ reduces cavitation while cornering at high speeds by directing water higher on the engine propeller.
- Dynamic Hull Channels direct water flow to improve cornering performance at high speeds.
