Pulse58: Radical Electric RIB

Professional BoatBuilder

At the Düsseldorf boat show earlier this year, RS Electric, a sister company to RS Sailing, a U.K. builder of dinghies, beach catamarans, and small keelboats (RS Aero, RS Feva, RS 2000), introduced the Pulse58, a new rigid-hull inflatable with some unusual features. With Hypalon tubes, a large cockpit with nonskid surfaces, saddle seats, and a tow post aft, the boat fits right into the fleet of coach boats buzzing around at every major regatta.
