Making its debut at the Monaco Yacht Show 2023, Rebel 50G is the latest addition to the Sacs Tecnorib range and is destined to conquer the hearts of luxury Maxi Rib enthusiasts. The Principality’s showcase was the best chance to present this new jewel, since it is the reference event not only for superyachts, but also for large inflatables that are suitable for comfortable few-day cruises or for use as megayacht tenders. Precisely for this reason Sacs Tecnorib chose the wonderful setting of Port Hercule to exhibit, from 27 to 30 September, the flagship model of the Rebel range, designed by Christian Grande to overturn the rules of boating, combining the sportiness of Maxi Ribs with the elegance of yachts and giving birth to models with unprecedented, muscular yet sophisticated lines. Together with the Rebel 50G, the Rebel 47 and the new Strider 11 were also put on display.
Rebel 50G, the Maxi Rib for unforgettable adventures
Rebel 50G is the new model in the Rebel range, which Sacs Tecnorib has designed to trace a new footprint in the pursuit of life on board as the perfect meeting point with a sense of adventure. Just looking at this splendid Maxi Rib opens the imagination to the possibility of reaching unexplored bays in no time at all; doing the rest is the highly sophisticated design, reminiscent of mega-yachts in its details and materials.
Rebel 50G features the typical stylistic features of the Sacs Tecnorib brand, but it is also an unconventional design, standing between the classic rib market and the open boat market, with a transition emphasized by the tapered foam profiles and enhanced by the side glazing. A key feature of this inflatable lies in fact in the two side windows flush with the hard-top, which define a hybrid deck space between cockpit and saloon. Moreover, a rear glass door is available as an option, in order to completely separate the interior and exterior and thus reconcile the usability of an open with the main advantages of a cruiser: comfort when underway and protection from adverse environmental conditions.
The exterior spaces of the Rebel 50G feature four different layouts, all characterized by a walkaround configuration and large spaces for improved conviviality. Below decks, on the other hand, two options are available, with one or two cabins, guaranteeing ample stowage space, excellent volumes and great privacy. Power comes from two Volvo Penta IPS 950 engines of 725 hp each which allow the Rebel 50G to reach a maximum speed and a cruising speed of 36 and 28 knots respectively.
Rebel 47 and Strider 11, the other two Ribs on display in Monaco
As mentioned above, alongside the Rebel 50G, Sacs Tecnorib also exhibited the Rebel 47 and Strider 11 at the Monaco Yacht Show 2023. The former, redesigned by Christian Grande at the beginning of 2023 and presented at the last Düsseldorf Show, is a luxury day-cruiser with a modern design and smaller foam tubulars that make the exteriors more sinuous and elegant. The main deck offers a large dining area with a cocktail cabinet, sink, drawers, refrigerator, and dining table with teak flap, as well as a relaxation area with sofas and sundeck, while below deck there are two double cabins with a super queen-size bed, sofa, and bookshelves. Innovations include a carbon hard-top, a wider and more rounded front window that increases visibility from the helm station, a reduced beam to fit within the 4-metre width that is an advantage when docking in port and, finally, a new range of metallic paint finishes.
The Strider 11, on the other hand, is the new model in the iconic Strider series, available in two versions, Sun Deck and Open Back.
The owner can choose the engine option that best suits his or her needs, the maximum speed is 47 knots and the capacity is 14 passengers. The Sun Deck version provides a full-beam sundeck in the aft area, while the Open Back version has a sofa for six. The telescopic central element can be lowered and the entire area can become a sundeck in turn. There are two berths (plus a further two optional ones in the Sun Deck version) and the interior, light and enveloping, is characterized by an elegant oak essence.
