Tecnorib’s latest RIB is the Pirelli 42, a walkaround craft penned by Sweden’s Mannerfelt Design Team. It can be powered with twin diesel or gasoline engines from Volvo Penta or Mercruiser. Maximum total horsepower is 800 for diesels and 900 for gasoline engines.

Whom It’s For: The yacht owner with friends, because the Pirelli 42 has room for 14 people. Additionally, there are sun pads fore and aft to catch some rays. A table in the cockpit allows for alfresco meals. Belowdecks, there are a head and a dinette table that converts to a berth for two. The builder says the Pirelli 42 works equally well as a shadow boat or as a standalone day cruiser.

Picture This: Even big boats can feel confining with a crowd on board. You call a few friends to meet you at the stern and have the crew launch the Pirelli 42. It’s time to take the wheel for some serious fun.
