Leiftur 1100 Tender

“Remarkable seakeeping and comfort compared with conventional boats, while at the same time breaking the attainable speed of a traditional displacement vessel.” - Andrew Johansson, Superyacht Magazine, Summer 2015

Leiftur 1100 Tender

Leisure RIB Series

Rafnar's Leiftur 1100 a third-generation tactical RIB, which was tested and developed in close co-operation with the Icelandic Coast Guard, is now available as a versatile yacht tender. This 11 meter craft has been designed to operate safely and comfortably in the worst weather and sea conditions, and can therefore handle any sea conditions easily, providing an exceptionally smooth platform. The craft's documented reliability and safety underline the ÖK Hull design's proven capabilities.

During the final development phase, the Icelandic Coast Guard sailed a prototype of the craft some 3,000 nautical miles around Iceland. The specially designed and crafted ÖK Hull cleanly cuts through the sea and waves, resulting in significantly improved seakeeping and maneuverability, as well as a safer and more comfortable ride for the crew. The ÖK Hull design generates greater grip and traction at low and high speed, and slices through sea and waves. The unique keel prevents drift and eliminates the typical bounce and slam experienced in conventional crafts.

In June 2017, Rafnar's Leiftur 1100 demonstration boat, Embla, turned one year old. In June 2016, Embla set off from Iceland and sailed to Gothenburg, Sweden, to attend the HSBO forum. She also attracted a lot of attention at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2016 as an exceptionally unique vessel, both in terms of seakeeping qualities and aesthetic appeal. In the one year that she has been operational, Embla has sailed approximately 4,500 nautical miles and has been transported many thousands of additional miles on top of that between Europe, Iceland, the United States, the Caribbean, and back. Despite heavy usage, Embla has not had a single fault or problem. 

The Leiftur 1100 is a versatile craft designed to perform a variety of functions and roles and comes with a multitude of capabilities. While designed to be the optimal tactical craft, the Leiftur 1100 provides an exceptional platform as a super- and mega-yacht tender and as a chase boat. The Leiftur 1100 series will remain a benchmark for radical changes for some time to come in the RIBs market, and Rafnar will continue to develop further models built on this very successful vessel.
