Christian Grande for the revolutionary REBEL 47 RIB.
The revolutionary Rebel 47 by Sacs Marine maintains all the qualities of a RIB while allowing for increased and improved living space without compromising the performance and safety typical of a RIB. Rebel 47 is in a category of its own. Rebel is the first example of a family of innovative and unique boats.
Everything on the Rebel 47 reveal its “leisure spirit” and show a new way of enjoying the cruising experience thanks to the unique trade-mark of Christian Grande, the designer that has distinguished the full Sacs Strider line in terms of innovation, look, materials’ selection and spaces’ arrangement.
“In designing the Rebel 47 I wanted to create a clear break, concrete rather than provocative, with the usual design framework. To do this I immediately thought of the concept of a Rebel, a solitary predator or member of an elite tribe, a tribe that neither conforms to convention nor wishes to. When I think about the Rebel, and the larger and smaller brothers to come, it is the tribal rule, a closed circle, that first inspired me and will inspire the future models,” explained Christian Grande – designer of the Rebel.
The D-shaped solid tubes are not inflated but made of a state-of-the-art composition of moldable foams a n d hi-tech anti collision plastics material, sheathed in Neoprene Hypalon.
Pandering the boat sculpted design, the tubes maintain their active role in the hydrodynamic project assuring all the positive attributes of conventional tubes–like. The result is an unbeatable durability along with a unique dry ride plus an improved stability during navigation or at the anchor.
Rebel 47, extremely versatile, will be available in two different configurations. One as “protected version” and another one as “Mediterranean” with a classic all-in-line layout. In the first version released – the Mediterranean – Rebel 47 with its high ship sides together with the wide “U shaped” windshield, allow the guests on board to stay in the living space as in a limousine. From the swimming platform, passed by the wide aft sunbed, guests have one unrestricted access into the cockpit.
The indispensable wet bar, countered by the welcoming upholstery and fitted with ice maker, fridges and even a cooktop (all options), is hidden in an elegant, functional piece of furniture.
The protective gunnels with the handrails reduce the sense of exposure and promote the confidence to move around the boat even when cruising at high speed. Once to the front, right after the massive sunbed, the reward of one unique relaxing area, with two ergonomic chaise-lounges, is definitively the most comfortable and exhilarating position aboard.
The massive swimming platform can be offered also in the hydraulic version while, beneath the sun- pad, a voluminous storage can accommodate a series of toys if not a roll-up inflatable tender.
The lower deck is characterized by a unique height in its category, and the harmony between the light Rovere wood and the dark Wengè creates a really refined environment. On the bow, a super queen size bed welcomes the guests in the elegant and well-designed owner dinette-room, which is very comfortable thanks to the chromatic variation and the extraordinary spaces volume.
A second double cabin on the stern, a modern bathroom with a rain-shower and a separate WC complete the internal spaces.
