Leiftur 1100 Work

Work Boat RIB Series

Rafnar's Leiftur 1100 was originally designed as a commercial vessel, tested and developed in close co-operation with the Icelandic Coast Guard and the Icelandic Association for Search and Rescue. Designed to operate safely and comfortably in the worst weather, the 11 meter Leiftur 1100 is designed to be an exceptionally smooth platform in any sea condition. The craft's documented reliability and safety underline the Rafnar Hull design's proven capabilities.

During the final development phase, the Icelandic Coast Guard sailed a prototype of the craft some 3,000 nautical miles around Iceland. The specially designed and crafted Rafnar Hull cleanly cuts through the sea and waves, resulting in significantly improved seakeeping and maneuverability, as well as a safer and more comfortable ride for the crew. The Rafnar Hull design generates greater grip and traction at low and high speed, and slices through sea and waves. The unique keel prevents drift and eliminates the typical bounce and slam experienced in conventional crafts.

In June 2016, Rafnar's Leiftur 1100 demonstrator craft, Embla, set off from Iceland and sailed to Gothenburg, Sweden, to attend the HSBO forum, some 1,300 nautical miles away. Going without the aid of a support craft, the Leiftur 1100's unique seakeeping qualities were put to the test in this trans=atlantic voyage.  

Built on the Rafnar Hull, the Leiftur 1100 is a versatile craft designed to perform a variety of functions and roles and comes with a multitude of capabilities. The Leiftur 1100 is designed to be the optimal professional and tactical craft.

The Leiftur 1100 series will remain a benchmark for radical changes for some time to come in the RIBs market, and Rafnar will continue to develop further models built on this very successful vessel.
