Kalashnikov Group to show new civil powerboat at International Maritime Defence Show


Kalashnikov Group, which is incorporated in the State Corporation Rostec, will introduce a civil pleasure powerboat manufactured by Vympel Shipyard (integrated into the Kalashnikov Group) at the International Maritime Defence Show МВМС-2017 held from 28th of June till the 2nd of July, 2017.

The new powerboat “Rybinsk” has joined the family of composite powerboats manufactured under the Vympel brand. It is ideal for long trips, fishing, hunting and other activities. The powerboat has successfully passed the state sea trials and confirmed all technical characteristics.

A comfortable and habitable powerboat has 4 beds, a galley, a mess-room, a spacious cockpit, an inboard engine and features high endurance (two 300-litre fuel tanks, 100-litre tank for process water, and 50-litre tank for drinking water). All those features make boat trips long and comfortable.

In 2014, Vympel Shipyard started the production of composite boats and is now developing the range of cruise, pleasure and fishing fiberglass boats, such as the “Vympel 5400” with the overall length of 5.4 m, equipped with 150 HP outboard motors and the “Vympel 7000” with an outboard motor and a stationary engine.

The other powerboat that will be presented at the exhibition is a fast patrol boat “Mangust” used by the Border Service of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation.

Besides participating in the exhibition МВМС-2017, the new “Rybinsk” boat will take part in a water expedition “Blue Necklace of Russia-2017” to Sevastopol starting in St. Petersburg 1st of July.
