This is the preview of the new Sacs Rebel 40, as it will be launched at Cannes Yachting Festival from 11 to 16 September 2018.
According to the company policy at every launch, the boatyard does not release any more info except the main measures. In the case of Rebel 40 the length is 12.32 and the beam 3.93 meters. Maybe they want people to discover everything during the official launch, although many visitors prefer to attend boat shows with a deep knowledge of the product alreaady.
So, let’s try to place the new Sacs Rebel 40 in the right picture. The yard is well known for big ribs of the Strider range, which go up to 20 meters. Then two years ago it was time for Rebel 47: 14 meters, combining the features of an inflatable boat with the essence of a large yacht (the photo shows the helm station).
After the Cannes Yachting Festival
the new Sacs Rebel 40 will tour the
main international boat shows
Hard to call it rib, but also to dub it a boat. It was a border-line product in many ways, compared to other types of inflatable or rigid boats. Was it a safe bet for the manufacturer? It really seems like that, as after two years of success they decided to expand the range with the smaller Sacs Rebel 40.
After the Cannes Yachting Festival the new Sacs Rebel 40 will tour the main international boat shows, meanwhile you just have to wait for September 11 in order to discover the new “enfant terrible” of the Sacs yard,And, if you want to get an idea of what it will be like, here’s Rebel 47.
