Imagine the ideal ingredients for the perfect dayboat, put them all together, and the X44 from Explosion Marine is what you would come up with. RIBs have long been popular as dayboats, but the X44 has the added advantage that it transforms into a superb bathing and sun-lounging platform when you arrive. Firstly, it's a rigid inflatable, always a good choice for a dayboat since they're very robust yet also light weight and therefore efficient and fast. It also has a cabin to provide privacy, as well as essential domestic facilities and somewhere to rest. But best of all, the deck, where you'll spend most of your time, has two fold-out sections that add over a metre to her width. This not only creates a spacious waterside platform, it also makes the boat more stable at rest. All of the deck is teak, so it's safe to walk on and comfortable even in hot weather. And finally, a rigid canopy provides cool shade or shelter for the driver and crew.
