Adorable? No way. Durable? Absolutely. This rigid-hull
inflatable boat (RIB) is must-have equipment for
extremists of water sports. The Zodiac CZ7 is the
consumer's version of the Hurricane (H-733), which was
built to the demanding military standards of the U.S.
Coast Guard and the Navy SEALS. Both boats have the
exact same fiberglass deep-V hull design. This enables
the CZ7 to rip through choppy waters at an astonishing
52 mph! The vessel's low center of gravity provides
extraordinary turning and cutting ability, putting the
CZ7 in a class of its own. This is one very, very
serious recreational boat.
The CZ7 is as safe and rugged as it is wildly
adventurous, as all fabrics are tested and approved
before being released for production. It has four
shock-mitigation saddles (seats) by Ullman and
shock-absorbing flooring. The CZ7 was tested for
toughness of raw materials, air tightness and tear
resistance. The RIB was subjected to a full range of
tests, including simulations and real-life situations.
It was tested in severe to sedate weather conditions
and while carrying various types of loads. The Zodiac
Group goes way beyond the
simple-adrenaline-seeking-yahoo status. It is
unquestionably locked in to the extremely
intelligent-adrenaline-seeking-yahoo status. Actually,
the company's record of accomplishments and history is
very impressive. It has worldwide regard for its
technological innovations in working with
The Zodiac Group is a France-based firm with
approximately 16,000 employees. Zodiac's manufacturing
facilities in North America are located in South
Carolina, Washington, and Vancouver. Its five
divisions specialize in aero-safety systems, aircraft
systems, cabin interiors for airplanes, airbag safety
and telemetry and telecommunications systems, and
marine technology, respectively.
After viewing the video of the CZ7 on the company's
website, I quickly concluded that I want one. Yahoo!
