Buzzi RIB 42 Sport
During a test on Italy's Lake Como, Dag Pike finds in the Buzzi 42 a rigid inflatable boat that offers comfort, handling – and over 60 knots of speed.
I have done sea trials on hundreds of yachts over the years and always there has always been aspects of the design or the handling that have made them less than perfect. Finally, after all these years, I have found the perfect boat and it is a boat that is so good that it leaves all the others in the shade. The Buzzi RIB 42 is simply brilliant in its concept and execution, and when you see this level of perfection you have to ask why other builders and designers cannot come up with equally good solutions.
The RIB 42 is excellent in every way, and it is extremely fast. With a speed of over 60 knots, this has to be one of the fastest production boats on the market. When it comes to building boats with this sort of speed, it is easy to pack in the power and let the driver sort it out. What is brilliant about the RIB 42 is the superb handling, enabling you to use the high speed with considerable safety and confidence, knowing that the boat will not let you down.
One of the factors that makes you feel so secure is the Tecno seating. Like the rest of the boat, these seats have been specially designed for the job and give comfort and support when the boat is moving in waves, with the figure hugging bolsters and their electrically adjustable squabs playing a great supporting role. There are four of these in the large cockpit, so everyone can enjoy the ride in considerable comfort.
The stunning profile of the RIB 42 has been kept low and sleek, a factor that would help stowage into the garage of a super yacht. The inflatable tube that surrounds the hull fines away towards the bow, which accentuates the RIB 42’s sleek lines. When the boat is at rest, the tubes are level with the water so that there is excellent stability.
At speed, the tubes lift clear of the water to reduce resistance, but they are there ready with extra buoyancy if the boat heels in waves or when turning. This gives an excellent controlled ride, which means that you can enjoy the full performance of this boat even in adverse conditions.
The central door gives access to the compact cabin. There is a settee on each side with a central table that lowers to create a double bed. On the port side, there is a basic galley with a sink and a microwave oven, while on the starboard side there is a complete bathroom with shower and toilet. It is enough for an overnight stop, but the RIB 42 would most likely be used as a day boat.
The design and technology used in the RIB 42 show just what can be achieved when the problems of fast boat driving are fully analysed and solutions found. Forty years of fast boating experience comes together in this design, and Fabio Buzzi will not accept second best. When he cannot find the right equipment for the job, he will design and manufacturer a solution. If only more builders and designers adopted this attitude we would have many more fine boats available. Each RIB 42 is designed to individual requirements, and they are all built under the watchful eye of the maestro.
What a joy it was driving this boat. With simple and straightforward controls, a boater can focus on enjoying the ride. This was pure thoroughbred performance from the master of fast boat design, Fabio Buzzi. While much of the focus of recent development in the FB Design shipyard has been on military craft, this RIB 42 demonstrates that they have not ignored the leisure boating sector. The RIB 42 is the first of a range of fast leisure boats that will be marketed under the Buzzi brand name. If there are more like this in the pipeline, we can look forward to an exciting fast boat future.
