The new generation of RIB
Welcome aboard the new generation W9 II ©.
It has already been 7 years since the first model of the french brand dedicated to yachting was launched, the famous W9 ©, we were then in 2013.
Five years of listening to boaters and professionals in the sector to constantly improve the model and its options. 5 years was the right time to question yourself and launch a new model, the successor to the W9 © (which is still available for sale).
The W9 II © was born! A sporty, high-tech semi-rigid with a size and a motorization allowing to go much further than you can imagine.
Discover the W9 II© :
Before reading the many innovations of the W9 II ©, simply take a look at it while sailing:
With a few centimeters of gain to reach 8.86 m, this new hull benefited from studies of calculation of the flows and underwent some modifications of structure at the level of 2 strakes to refine the line of curve on the bow in order to improve the gyroscopic stability and to move the center of gravity slightly more forward, thus giving more weight in the front part.
Front steel reinforcement
This new feature visible in stainless steel on the nose is in fact mainly dedicated to allow the traction of the W9 II © by yachts or in case of breakdown to be towed. This contributes to the front end to give it a more harmonious line.
This principle integrated into the hull allows a large unit to tow the W9 II © at more than 25 knots, even in heavy seas without fear of damage to its structure. This also allows ballast in the front part. 2 towing rings are available on either side of the hull.
A more attacking design
The W9 © with its usual « curves » has benefited from a new design to give the W9 II © straighter and more marked lines.
The W9 II © has kept the parts that made its success, namely to always offer a saloon with a front saloon and a large rear deck, and even a possibility of a sleeping cabin in the aft hold.
A tighter rear platform
Offered in a single-engine version with a wide range of engines ranging from 350 HP to 500 HP, the rear bracket (the platform surrounding the engine) has been redesigned to provide even more space.
There is plenty of room on board to rest your legs in the water and enjoy as close as possible to the sea. The integrated swim ladder has 2 very practical stainless steel handrails for getting back up dry.
A hard roof
Important novelty which gives the W9 II © a more protective design, it now has a real « hard » cap protecting you from the sun and bad weather.
On the exterior side, it also allows navigation systems such as radio and VHF antennas, radar or directional projectors to be attached to its roof, and the interior side to integrate VHF controls, music or additional speakers
This « cap » is topped with 2 ultra thin blades.
And as always, the arms and the cap are fully customizable in color.
A comfortable leaning post
Comprising 2 sports seats with folding base allowing the pilot and his passenger to stand in a seated or standing position. At the rear, it has an optional shelf for brunching in the semi-circular lounge as well as a refrigerator accessible through an opening on the top.
A very design console
Completely redesigned the cockpit of the W9 II © thus offers a whole new face. This console offers more visibility to the pilot with a plexiglass molded in convex shape around its entire periphery.
2 wide planes allowing the choice of the freedom to integrate the cockpit and the instruments of their choice and Finally stainless steel bars ensure safety for the passenger who can stand.
It consists of two wide planes allowing each boater to customize his cockpit according to the navigation instruments of your choice, a stainless steel structure to hold the cap, a footrest, a storage hatch, two round stainless steel portholes with possible opening on each side. Finally, stainless steel safety handles allow the passenger to stand safely during navigation.
The front part includes a molded lift-up seat concealing a door giving access to a large re-engagement space and / or toilet and shower.
