P1 Puma RIB Technical Specification

When it came to preparing the technical specifications for the new RIB, it was a prerequisite that the vessel should offer predictable handling and a high level of crew safety and comfort. Furthermore, there was a requirement for high quality design and production, with functionality and simplicity at the heart of a boat designed primarily to race. Careful consideration was also given to the choice of on-board equipment and engine supplier.

P1 Puma

Hull design

A conventional, non-stepped 18° deadrise deep vee hull with three parallel spray rails.


Powered by the new Evinrude 200 HO G2 engine – a class leading choice with unrivalled torque, fuel efficiency and features. The engine is mounted directly to the transom and attached to a reinforced inner transom plate.


The cockpit features reinforced side protection for the crew to shoulder height. Additional protection for both driver and navigator – in the form of a 75mm diameter aluminium tube – is bonded in under the top radius of the cockpit.


The ergonomically designed console features two side-by-side custom race seats mounted to a base suspension system, each with adjustable gas shock, with fore and aft adjustment fitted to deck. There is also space for an optional rear bench seat for use in a leisure configuration.


The deck is fully moulded, with a non-slip finish and features two foredeck hatches that accesses the under-deck, water-tight lockers. The tapered tubes are bonded to the hull and made of Hypalon.


20 inch high, ply insert, two large knees running down into stringers, two self-bailing devices, automatic bilge pump well, custom cover plate, drain bung, two tow / lifting eyes. Powder coated aluminium inner transom bolt brace.

Recreational craft directive

Boats between 2.5m and 24m in length must conform to the RCD in order to be sold and used in Europe (and a growing list of non-EU countries). Race boats are typically excluded from the RCD requirement but, as the RIB will be used for cruising too, Powerboat P1 has elected to have the vessel assessed and verified so that it can carry the CE mark to further enhance its credibility.
