The BrownieDive™ Edition of Nautica's RIB 22 Widebody is a combination of technologies that result in a boat that is functional, comfortable and fun to operate.

Nautica's RIB 22 offers numerous features that make Brownie's Built-in Boat Diving System a perfect compliment, including convenient swim platforms on either side of the engine and large grab handles to make boarding easier for swimmers and divers.
