Our History

Avon Marine welcomes you to its new collection.

Founded in Bradford, UK on our fine traditions of quality, value and pursuing our program of flair and innovation, Avon Marine has produced over 200,000 tenders and rigid inflatable boats (RIB). Nearly 60 years of experience producing first-class hand-built products has led Avon to be recognized as one of the most premium inflatable products on the market.

In 1998 the company was purchased by Zodiac, the world’s largest manufacturer of inflatable boats. The partnership with Zodiac has allowed for both companies to flourish as they were able to combine resources to develop premium products and shared technologies such as removable tubes.

Avon products are available globally from an international dealer network of distributors and agents, and are serviced by a comprehensive network of locally convenient service stations that provide expert after sales support for our customers.

Avon Marine is now proudly manufacturing RIB’s in the USA.

Our Values

Each product boasts unrivalled design, careful research and rigorous sea trials to guarantee exceptional on water performance and life saving capabilities.

The smallest detail is considered, from the hull design to carrying capacity, ensuring outstanding handling, buoyancy and seaworthiness.

As testament to the product quality, Avon’s Liferaft range has had more successful rescues than any other brand, including the longest Liferaft survival in history- an impressive 117 days.

Why choose Avon?

Avon has been setting the standard for quality, style and innovation for generations – the Roll Away is a prime example, and as you’re about to see, we’re still leading the way and leaving everything in our wake.

With their light weight and advanced hull designs, you can expect high performance from your Avon even with medium powered engines, providing major energy and cost savings. The seaworthiness of these inflatables is unparalleled.

With well tested, carefully designed hull shapes, raised bows, outstanding buoyancy and remarkable stability, they can withstand much rougher conditions than rigid craft of comparable size.
