Southbound RIAD 9.5

At Southbound aesthetics are everything, if something looks good, the ergonomics and structural integrity will follow. This is typical of our design and construction. For this boat, the cooperation between the boatyard and Akesdesign created a superb RIB with foamfilled collar, fishing-ready deck, trailerable, made of aluminum 5083. Built to the toughest standards with safety and stability in mind, our boats are comfortable and have the ability to handle the roughest of Down South Australia weather & sea conditions.

Southbound RIAD 9.5


Southbound 950 design is based on a Akesdesign hull with one of the largest deadrises available with a slamming zone, along with mellow reverse chines at the slamming point allowing the hull to displace the water highly efficiently. The boat, built with big plate thickness and a very strong stiffening system, is perfect for cruising and fishing in any conditions, due to its strong construction and unsinkability given by foamfilled collar. Performances are pretty good with 45 knots with twin 300 hp and very dry and soft ride.
