Each GRAND is made by hand, one at a time. Behind every model is tough, durable and hand-crafted manufacturing process that stands up to the toughest environment mother nature throws on our way. Outmost skilled manufacturing specialists and a top-notch, quality control system are combined to provide the best guarantees and highest level of quality. We leave our product in the hands of real professionals. We would have it no other way!
Best materials supplied from the best suppliers is the only way to ensure the greatest quality. All parts and systems are built from reliable and credible brands. For instance, GRAND inflatables are coated with five layers of 1100 Dtes and 1680 Dtex, which is reinforced with MIRASOL and VALMEX fabrics to ensure outstanding durability and abrasion-resistance for life! If the best product isn't available, we create our own. For instance, our original new HTL adhesive not only offers structural integrity, it withstands temperatures more than 90 Degree C! To ensure you receive the best product for the value, our buoyancy tubes are made of extra-strength HYPALON (ORCA/TREVIRA) for our high-end boats. With GRAND, there are advantages on and off the water!

 



5-layers coated and nylon reinforced fabric for GRAND inflatables.


 

Double-wall drop-stitch material for high-pressure inflatable foor (air-deck).
Every GRAND model incorporates a unique combination of innovative techniques, patented designs and our years of expertise. Utilizing the latest CAD/CAM technology with the most advanced software, every GRAND is perfected to the smallest details to ensure the utmost quality. Once a model has been built, we perfect it even more with an extensive on-water sea trial in the harshest conditions before it even sees a showroom floor!
Just find out here some original technical solutions and genius design ideas , whish make GRAND inflatables a unique and the ONLY choice :

LOWERED BUOYANCY TUBE ENDS
 
 
 
This practical and effective design has several great advantages:
• extends the waterline, increasing stability and onboard safety,
• it minimizes bow lift with lighter loads,
• it reduces water spray to a minimum and increases water movement in the stern, which in turn, decreases hydro-dynamical resistance and increases fuel efficiency.



DEEP "V" HULLS
 
 
 
This practical and effective innovation offers several great advantages:
• extends the waterline, increasing stability and onboard safety,
• it minimizes bow lift with lighter loads,
• it reduces water spray to a minimum and increases water movement in the stern, which in turn, decreases hydro-dynamical resistance and increases fuel efficiency.



SHARPER KEEL LINE
 
 
 
E very GRAND RIB hull has a sharper, protruding keel line over classic lines to:
• extend the waterline and sufficiently increase maneuverability,
• effectively cut through waves for a smoother ride on rough water,
• maintain a drier ride and minimize water spray.
Most importantly, it creates an elegant, yet aggressive profile, adding good look to the utmost functionality!




Unique "HSH" Design Rigid Hulls
 
 
 
The main concept behind our exclusive High-Step-Hull (HSH) is to increase buoyancy and ensure:
• the tube has less wetted surface during top speeds and planing over conventional boats.
• the tube offers excellent tracking during idle and slow speeds for superb maneuverability.
HSH Hull system offers:
• Improved performance and less fuel consumption,
• a higher freeboard, along with increased buoyancy and load capacity,
• a smoother ride with comfort and safety

As well as this, the RS Eastern Championships will kick off the season in April and we will also host, yet again, the annual Taste of Greystones Regatta in August, which brings in over 500 sailors in over 100 keel boats to Greystones Harbour Marina on an annual basis, bringing welcome tourism revenue to the town.” “Greystones Sailing Club has an active training and sailing program, providing sailing instruction to both children and adults and is open for membership. Everyone is encouraged to try sailing on our many adult or child courses, and we welcome new members to contact us, to be part of this growing, vibrant club,” Daphne added.  The Club has over 300 members sailing a variety of dinghy classes and offers exciting and enjoyable dinghy racing for all ages and abilities. It has a well-earned reputation as one of the top dinghy sailing clubs in Ireland with its sailors competing successfully in many open events over the years, both nationally and internationally.
