The Perfect Tender, Made On Lake Erie’s Shores

Published: Wednesday, October 10, 2018

The M Series Mercury RIBs are the perfect tender for your yacht. Built by the same company that produces Airship RIBs (Adaptive Composites), the M Series might be a step down in terms of size but certainly not in quality. Every part on the M Series RIBs is designed and built right on the shores of Lake Erie in Vermilion, Ohio, using cutting edge technology such as vacuum resin infusion with a foam core, giving the vessel superior strength while also keeping them very light and efficient.

Adaptive Composites uses their experience in offshore powerboat racing to create a design that exhilarates their customers when they sit down in the driver’s seat. Every aspect is treated like a race boat. The rigging is very clean and organized, designed to hold up through tough waters and be easily accessible. The tubes are made of Hypalon and have three separate filling chambers to negate failure.

The M Series RIBs come in two different sizes, 11’ and 13’, with a weight of approximately 650 to 700 pounds, making them perfect for storing on the back of a boat. They come with different options such as Sea Deck flooring, sound systems, custom gel coat colors, and bimini tops.

Please call Adaptive Composites at (440) 967-1073 for more information.
