Norsafe unveils ‘Marathon 900’ RIB

Norsafe has launched its first RIB, the ‘Marathon 900’ at the High Speed Boat Operations Forum (HSBOF) in Gothenburg, Sweden in May.

Norsafe’s ‘Marathon 900’ RIB concept is modular and flexible, and can be equipped with inboard diesel engines or water jets, stern drives and lifting points for installation in davits.

Norsafe’s nine-metre RIB was demonstrated with two newly developed Mercury outboard engines that can run on diesel fuel.

Mercury OptiMax Diesel Outboard, which was developed for the US Armed Forces, is a 3.0-litre V6 engine.
