Strata 490

The Smuggler Strata 490 RIB is unrivalled in performance and quality. This boat has a 23 degree deep vee hull so the ride is comfortable and safe, no matter what the conditions. The Strata 490 comes standard on a trailer with a range of console options to suit your needs. It can also be used as a tender, with lifting rings and strops built into the hull. The beauty of this RIB is the ability to custom finish your console and seating options. The Smuggler Strata 490 is a great diving, fishing, picnic boat, or follow the kids sailing and tow them around on tow toys.
