Founded in 1979, the Formenti boatyard has a long tradition and meticulous craftsmanship in manufacturing inflatable boats.
Today the ZAR range of boats by Formenti is sold in all major European markets.
The company growth and the success of its product are the result of a precise strategy focused on quality rather than quantity, investments in R & D, the use of the best materials, advanced technology and a modern, well-organized production facility. The company’s quality system was awarded ISO 9002 certification by the Italian Mercantile Registry.
The most advanced IT together with refined 3D software were introduced in the year 2000. Today, the entire range of prototypes, of the moulds, of full size and on scale models is produced by CNC (computer numerical control) machines, which guarantee precision.
Future is already here at ZAR-FORMENTI thanks to the research and development of cutting edge, environmental-friendly materials and production practices.
Our ZAR mini™ RIB line has different sizes and versions. All boats can be equipped with a bow locker (“L”) and a flat double flooring (“D”). All boats starting from RIB11 have a bow locker and from RIB 12 a double flooring and a bow locker as standard features. Below these sizes (RIB8,9 & 10) you can choose what you need.
As optional equipment there are steering consoles and double seating (starting from RIB9 and only with double floor). You can also choose from a variety of sunroofs, bilge pumps, cushions and many more things.
The ZAR mini™ RIB line can easily pull water toys, waterski (from25hp) and tubes with the two installed D-rings on the transom.
Every ZAR mini™ has three lifting Davit lifting points. One in the bow and two on the transom. If your ZAR mini™ has a bow locker, you will have four lifting points.
Due to the very light aluminum hull it can go very fast and plan easily with a smaller engine. The hull will not face any problems of Osmoses or gel coat defects like a fiberglass hull. It will also last longer and not become heavier during use. The aluminum hull is being specially manufactured and powder coated to resist corrosion and saltwater. You will have a lot of fun with your ZAR mini™ RIB.
All RIB inflatables from ZAR mini™ until RIB14 have a 5 layer reinforced high quality 1.100 dtex PVC material with a weight of 1.050g/m2 and a thickness of 0.9mm.
All RIB inflatables from ZAR mini™ starting from RIB15 have a 5 layer reinforced high quality 1.100 dtex PVC material with a weight of 1.500g/m2 and a thickness of 1.2mm.
All ZAR miniTM RIB inflatables are also available in CSM (formally known as Hypalon™ from DuPont™) with a special design. Please ask your ZAR mini™ dealer, for further details. CSM lasts much longer than PVC and is more resistant toward UV light, acid, alkalis, saltwater, heat and cold. We use Hypatex™ that is one on the best material on the world market today. It has been manufactured since 60 years.
All PVC seems of our ZAR mini™ tube chambers are welded*. All boats feature an overpressure valve, as standard equipment, that will protect your tube when inflated properly. High quality material’s paired with constant research & development are the key to success.
Every single ZAR mini™ inflatable boat passes a very strict quality control, before we deliver it to our valued customers. Just in case a mistake passes the quality control, you will be protected by our limited 2 years warranty after registering your boat with us.
With our large standard equipment and our modern Italian Design, the ZAR mini™ inflatables are one of a kind. Starting from RIB13 you will have an extra wide bow.
For all kind of watersport you can find your matching ZAR mini™ RIB. Waterskiing, cruising, SCUBA diving, fishing or as a tender to your yacht. ZAR mini™ RIB is able to satisfy your expectations.
