Zodiac CZ7: A Real RIB Tickler

Luxury Vehicle: 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 flexible-structure materials.

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!
