Brig now offers four RIBs in its Navigator range, including the Brig N570. Alex Smith went to Dusseldorf Boat Show to get on board and have a close-up look.
Based on the hull of the entry-level Falcon 570, which is one of the best-selling RIBs in the world, the Brig N570 is aimed more at the family market. Hence, the helm console is offset to starboard in order to discourage anyone wishing to use the side that the throttle lever is on for moving forward or aft and the bench seating configuration comes as standard. Jockey seats are also a popular option.
The standard features list is pretty good too, with the anti-skid deck, built-in fuel tank, davit lifting points and ski towing point all finding their way onto the basic package.
Design touches include the curved metal supports for the aft bench in front of the outboard and the curved gantry. The tubes are a fairly hefty 50cm in diameter, but the designers still found room to seat 10 on board, including the helmsman. Engine options range from 80hp up to 120hp.
