Genesis G2 Light Open RIB





Comfort and Practicality all in one Package.
For those most concerned with weight and portability, our lightest hull RIB also folds and stores easily. Quick to plane, super durable and easy to store, the Genesis Light also comes with a cup holder and a small storage compartment in the seat for valuables. A smart choice for those who just need the basics.
For 2015 Genesis is all new. The feature loaded Genesis 2nd Generation G2 RIB combines a hull that is durable and easy to maintain with superior features and plenty of space for cargo and crew. Boasting innovative features such as Wheels in the Hull™ for maneuvering on land, a tapering tube design that offers a wider bow area and more interior space, and a tube rocker that makes for a drier ride, it’s no wonder Genesis has been turning heads around the world.
Genesis also keeps you dryer than any other RIB in its class. The combination of a wide bow design and the curved V-hull keeps water down at the bow and not up in your face while at speed. The non-skid floor on a Genesis drains at all points to a bilge so there is never any water at your feet, keeping you and your belongings dry.
The new G2 version has tons of upgrades above and below the surface. The transom is anodized aluminum to be light weight, incredibly strong and avoid any corrosion. Tube construction is further improved through improved transom point reinforcement, a new removable tube seal system and a thicker and sturdier rub rail. With so many upgrades comes a new look and color so the most advanced small RIB on the market looks even better.
Available in German Made Heytex PVC or ORCA CSM.

Injection Molded for a Better Hull

Genesis RIBs are manufactured using the state-of-the-art injection molds, which enable the highest level of finishing and accuracy, providing detail features not possible with other manufacturing processes. High Impact Marine Composite (HIMC) resin is injected into the 82-ton steel mold with over 8,000 tons of clamp force. The result is a superior one-piece hull that is UV protected, lightweight, extremely durable and backed by an unprecedented 10-year hull warranty. No other hull can compare. What’s more, this type of manufacturing process is entirely environmentally friendly and 100% recyclable. More than just a smart choice, this is a boat you can feel good about owning.

Replaceable Tube Design

With a hull that will virtually last forever, Genesis is the first RIB of its size, which offers you the option to replace your tube. The hardwearing Genesis hull features a removable tube design, offering ease of maintenance or future tube replacement. Finally, a boat for life.

Tube Options

Walker Bay is one of the only inflatable boat manufacturers in the world to offer a choice in fabric options: ORCA CSM or German Heytex Welded PVC. Built to last, both fabrics offer durable seams using a 3 layer process with all seams internally and externally butted for maximum reliability.
If price isn’t a concern, ORCA CSM is an excellent choice for warmer climates or the avid boater. Casual boaters or those who live in milder climates can reap the economical benefits of a PVC boat. Regardless of your choice, a boat cover is strongly recommended as it will protect your tube and prolong the lifespan of your boat.

Exceptional Performance

Designed around four-stroke motors, Genesis has exceptional maneuverability and handling. With its Deep V-Hull Design and High Impact Marine Composite (HIMC) construction, Genesis is able to cut through rough water while absorbing vibration for an incredibly smooth ride. Dynamic hull channels direct water flow to improve cornering performance at high speeds. These channels, combined with the integrated trim tabs, direct water flow downwards at the stern. This forces the bow down, which helps facilitate earlier planing. The Genesis Console adds further performance by moving weight forward in the boat and allowing for larger horsepower motors. The result is a faster, smoother running boat, which is quicker up on a plane. When it comes to performance, nothing can compare to Genesis.

Smooth Ride

V-Hull cuts through rough chop.
HIMC Hull absorbs vibration for a smoother ride.
Trim Tabs level boat at planing speeds for a more solid, stable ride.

Early Planing

Trim Tabs direct water flow downwards at the stern, which helps facilitate earlier planing.
V-Lift™ directs water flow higher on the engine propeller resulting in more lift.
Aluminum Transom is stiffer and lighter than fiberglass transferring more energy from the motor
into forward thrust.

Superior Maneuvrability

V-Lift™ reduces cavitation while cornering at high speeds by directing water higher on the engine propeller.
Dynamic Hull Channels direct water flow to improve cornering performance at high speeds.
