Gemini Vessels

Britton Maritime has a long standing relationship with Gemini Marine South Africa in supplying specialised inflatable and foam collared RHIBs to Defence, Law Enforcement and Commercial users. Facing the southern Atlantic Ocean from a home port of Cape Town, South Africa, Gemini Inflatables were first created in 1979 under the toughest conditions. Today, the Gemini range is regarded as the most innovative range of military inflatables and RIBs.

Through constant research and development GEMINI Boats are able to update continuously and produce advanced products. Military products are created to order. At every stage of a boat’s development, a GEMINI specialist will involve the buyer. GEMINI always include staged valuation trials to ensure complete satisfaction before final delivery takes place.

Each Gemini RIB is built to achieve perfect hydrodynamic efficiency.  Gemini hulls feature a true monocoque so the hydrodynamic efficiency of the monohedron shaped hull softens each ride and delivers teams anywhere in complete comfort and safety in even the most difficult conditions.

Gemini Inflatables will reach ISO 9001 certification in 2003. Current certification includes : Bureau Veritas, Germanischer Lloyd, American Bureau of Shipping, SA Maritime Safety Authority, Lloyds Register, Det Norslie Veritas and Armaments Corporation of SA.

All of the tubes are made out of Hypalon® 1670 DTEX (military specification fabric). All Gemini Inflatables can have the HP cylinder inflation capability & optional shallow water hi-jackers to give increased performance with heavy payloads.
