Kibou, a 12.5- by 4.2-metre rigid hull inflatable boat (RHIB) built by Armstrong Marine, recently commenced daily tours in Hawaii under local operator Hawaii Experiences.

The vessel has capacity for 40 passengers and two crew, three Evinrude 300hp (223kW) outboard engines, and three custom dive ladders to allow snorkelers to get in and out of the water.

Kibou is the second Armstrong-built vessel to be acquired by Hawaii Experiences after the 12-metre catamaran Mirai which was delivered in 2017.
