Ukraine-based Brig Boats are increasing their U.S. presence.

Brig USA delivered rigid-hull inflatables to Carefree Boat Club locations in southern Connecticut, Seattle, and Annapolis, Md.

Club members have access to the boats through an online reservation system and have reciprocal benefits at locations across the United States and Canada. The club also provides on-water instruction.

“We bought the Brigs because we think they are the perfect boat-club boat,” Bryant Heffernan, of Carefree Boat Club of Southern Connecticut, said in a statement. “They are safe, they look good, and they meet the needs of our members, providing sun coverage, speed and comfort. They handle our waters very well.”

The addition of the Brig RIBs was driven by growing demand for the durable, versatile boats, Brig USA CEO Boyd Tomkies said.

“First-time boaters have told us that they rented RIBs in Europe,” Tomkies said. “They expressed their desire to rent the boats here, but up until now, there wasn’t a way to do that.”
