"You are not the only Rib or dingy manufacturer in South Africa that I have been talking to over the past 3 months but let me tell you it has been such a pleasure dealing with you form the very first telephonic conversation we had. I wish you everything of the best in the future and hope your company goes from strength to strength. You really deserve it. Let Wild Cat become the manufacturer of choice."

Kevin (Wildcat Rib customer)


WILDCAT Inflatables S.A has been racing and producing boats for nearly two decades, being pioneers in South African RIB racing since it's inception. Wildcat manufactures a 6,5m and a 9,0m RIB racing rib that is completely designed and developed on home soil.

Wildcat also produces a 4.5m Racing RIB that was used exclusively as the RIB of choice in the Offshore Small boat racing league for many years.
Wildcat boats have proven themselves overseas and locally as one of the better rough water boats, handling extremely well in the worst of conditions. In the F3 class RIB in South Africa, the only womens team in the world at the time used a Wildcat due to "it giving a fast and stable ride in any conditions."

Wildcat came 1st in the 2000/1 Trans - Agulhas and also dominated the RIB class in the 2001/02 challenge ending in 2nd, 4th and 5th places. Wildcat fielded the only women's team in 3 consecutive seasons of RIB racing and they were the only women's team to successfully complete 2 Trans - Agulhas and Richards Bay to Durban challenges.

RIB racing is a very competitive sport, and the research and development that has gone into our racing experience had also paid it's dividend in our other boat designs and builds.
