Fairfield, CA, September 28, 2016 – Walker Bay Boats, will be showcasing the new 17ft Generation RIB at the Ft Lauderdale and Annapolis Boat shows. Michael Carroll, Director of Sales and Marketing for Walker Bay Boats said, “This is our new top of the line RIB and we are excited to take it on tour to the fall shows. It’s worth seeing that strong design and ingenuity will undoubtedly raise the bar for all RIB’s in this size category.” The Generation 525 is an ideal day boat, great for water sports, easy for commuting to your water front home or as a luxury tender for a mega yacht.
The Generation 525 is designed for a smooth ride with an innovative manufacturing process that results in superior handling and a strong hull that is built to last. Unlike other RIB’s that use plywood stringers to support the hull and top deck, Walker Bay incorporates a Polyurethane Composite Micro Stringer system in the floor, making it lighter and stronger. The Generation also has a unique approach to joining the hull and deck using a unidirectional glass and polyurethane grid bonding system that eliminates the air cavity found in other RIBs. The end result is a stronger hull that better absorbs wave chop, and its lighter weight gives a faster top speed and makes it quick to plane.
Intelligent Design for Maximum Pleasure
This spacious 17ft RIB has a roomy cockpit layout and flip up driver’s bolster seat for extra room while standing when driving in tougher conditions. The hydraulic tilt steering system gives you quick and easy maneuverability at all speeds. Attention to design detail is what Walker Bay is known for, so you will find 4 stainless steel pop-up cleats, 5 stainless steel cup holders, an insulated cooler in one of five easy to access gear lockers, hand rails where you need them and deluxe comfy cushions on all seating. Five stylish teak steps and handrails on the forward seat and console make for stable boarding. There is a solid stainless steel retractable ski post and 10 gallon fresh water shower on the transom.
