Loki RB-10  Adventure Boat

Boats built in British Columbia tend to be ready for anything, and the all-new Loki RB-10 out of North Vancouver, made by boutique yacht builder Loki Ocean Enterprises Inc., is a rugged performance vessel that’s carving up local waterways.

Upon approach, the Loki, with its striking arrow-like profile and black styling, could be mistaken as a law enforcement or search and rescue fast response boat. The hull features a deep v-hull, that coupled with its heavy construction, narrow beam, and stabilizing Hypalon-covered inflatable collar, is intended for fast and smooth all-weather cruising speeds up to a whopping 50 knots (suggested cruising speed is 40 knots). The reported fuel efficiency numbers are 15 gallons per hour with the single screw 400-hp Volvo D6 (diesel inboard) option, and 25 gallons per hour for the twin 300-hp gas-outboard option. With all of this in mind, one may not immediately think “cruiser,” but the manufacturer touts a 550-nautical mile range for the outboard model at a 30-knot cruise, which should be plenty adequate for island-hopping fishing trips or wilderness-themed adventure on the Inside Passage.

Loki RB-10  Adventure Boat specsLoki Ocean Enterprises Inc. is purely a custom shop, so options for the prospective buyer include center console, wheelhouse, and enclosures. The standard version has a standing-headroom head with sink compartment in the center console, a cantilever roof, and windshield with secure seating for four in-bucket seats on aluminum storage bases.

If you want to go fast or got somewhere to be in a hurry, the Loki RB-10 may be calling your name. More info is available online at lokiboats.com. Prices vary considerably due to the many custom options; contact them for pricing.
