The Zodiac Group in Australia in a major strategic announcement confirmed the appointment of the long established inflatable sales and repair centre of West RIBs as the exclusive Western Australian dealer for their ubiquitous brand of recreational inflatable boats. Zodiac is a brand so well known and so associated with inflatable boats that a vast majority of the boating public still refer to inflatables as 'Zodiacs'.

'West RIBs were clearly the only choice for us. No other company has the service level, reputation and technical ability to meet our appointment criteria for the Zodiac brand' said Zodiac National Manager Dino Tantaro. 'Both companies share the passion for the product and a high level of customer support' West RIBs will be providing sales, service and parts from its conveniently located Fremantle showroom and workshop.

West RIBs has long provided repair services for all types of inflatable boats including the military vessels used by the Australian Navy. As a result of this the company has grown to become the most active repair centre in the southern hemisphere. 'Because of our extensive experience in repairing inflatables we have seen designs and features that work well and others that do not. Because of this we are particularly proud to be associated with the Zodiac brand' stated West RIBs Managing Director, Chris Castle

Almost immediately following the appointment, West RIBs secured its first deal providing 4.2m Futura Mark II to a sea rescue organisation that required a fast vessel with exceptional durability. The inclusion of the Zodiac range considerably broadens the products available from West RIBs who currently handle the Falcon and West inflatable brands.

West RIBs will be marketing the extensive Zodiac assortment of tenders, sport boats, jet boats and the new N-ZO range of sport cruising RIBs. West Australia continues to be a significant market for the Zodiac brand as ownership levels of inflatable craft amongst the boating public is one of the highest in the world.
