Manufacturer focus: BRIG, aeronautical engineering for the yachting industry

If you're looking for RIB boats that combine top performance with impeccable craftsmanship, Brig is the obvious choice.

Renowned for its cutting-edge technology inherited from the aeronautics industry and its commitment to quality, Brig is a major player in the global pleasure boat market.


History and founding of BRIG

Brig's story begins in 1992 in the Ukrainian town of Kherson. At that time, the USSR had just collapsed, and many talented engineers found themselves out of work.

It was against this backdrop that Valeriy Kostiuk, former chief engineer at the Yakovlev aircraft plant, decided to bring together a team of former colleagues to create a new company.

Motivated by their thirst for innovation and their technical know-how, these outstanding engineers decided to turn their attention to a field that was new to them: boat building.

They then founded Brig, a company specializing in the manufacture of inflatable and semi-rigid boats, in reference to a type of two-masted sailing ship used by pirates and privateers.

In 2014, the company was acquired by the Brunswick Corporation group, one of the world leaders in the marine industry. This takeover enabled Brig to increase its investment in research and development, and further expand its presence on the international market.


Aeronautical heritage at the heart of Brig's DNA

Brig's philosophy can be summed up in one sentence: to marry the cutting-edge technology and precision of aeronautical engineering with the best of naval craftsmanship. This unique marriage results in semi-rigid boats renowned for their :

  • Unrivalled strength and maneuverability thanks to construction techniques derived from aeronautics.
  • Outstanding sailing performance for remarkable speed and agility.
  • Increased reliability and safety for confident outings.
