Powerboat & RIB Review magazine, November 18, 2016 Michaela Montgomery-Swan

Brig Eagle 650 & 780

With the company on the brink of celebrating 25 years of boat production, HMS heads for Salcombe to test Brig’s popular Eagle 650 along with the current ‘flagship’ of the range, the Eagle 780. Thrown in for good measure is a mini overview of the company’s Navigator 700

It’s not often we get the opportunity to undertake a triple test, so when we got the call, we quickly rose to the challenge of doing battle with the holiday traffic heading west in order to check out Brig’s current best-selling models. Here in the UK, this popular brand of leisure RIB has been associated exclusively with the Wolf Rock Boat Company, but since the demand for the Brig range has grown, Wolf Rock have launched Brig UK and established a network of dealers, of which it is now one. Such are the politics of expansion!

There’s good reason why Brig has become such an established make of RIB in the UK, and it goes beyond that which could be attributed to having strong brand identity. The fact is, the Brig appears to fulfil a particular need in the UK market and has done this well for a good number of years now. Furthermore, in terms of design and general styling, the Brig is recognisable, with a strong identity that has the advantage of standing out among the competition.

Brig offer two distinct ranges in their portfolio: the ‘Eagle’ range, which is the premier model range, and the ‘Navigator’, which is aimed more at the ‘entry level’ and light commercial markets. Particularly in the case of the Eagle, its aesthetic appears to draw upon both Continental and British RIB styling, resulting in a model range that offers both sports boat-type comforts and purposeful seagoing functionality. It’s likely that a good number of Brig owners choose one of these craft because while on the one hand they understand the seagoing benefits of a RIB, at the same time they are not necessarily interested in purchasing an outright macho ‘mile-muncher’! They’re looking for something a little more family orientated.

According to Brig UK, the best-selling model in the Eagle range is the 650. It’s comparatively well priced too at a little under 43k (inclusive of VAT), with a spec that includes a Suzuki DF150 TGL Lean Burn 4-stroke, galvanised trailer and every ‘extra’ required to make it a genuine ‘drive-away’ package. But then, within the sub-70k RIB price bracket, there are not that many direct alternatives to Brig’s current flagship, the Eagle 780, especially when you factor in its extensive and very comprehensive specification, which includes the very latest Suzuki 300APX V6 4-stroke outboard, its electronics package and a host of other items.

Of course, there are many other makes of RIB, all with their own clear merits, and some, as we know, are exceptional in their abilities and standard of construction. But in this particular sector of the leisure market, the Brig Eagle offers an attractive option because these RIBs are now one of the few brands available in the UK that promote the leisure benefits of combining both Continental and northern European design influences. Indeed, the Eagle’s large-diameter tubes are perhaps more akin to many of the Mediterranean brands, such as Lomac, Capaldi or even Stingher, than those of UK origin, but the introduction of the military-grey, fabric impression Hypalon that comes as standard on these boats gives them a purposeful as well as a very high-quality finish. The big-diameter tubes also provide a reassuring degree of stability at rest, so they don’t rock from side to side readily, and thanks too to the high-gunwale effect of the tubes in relation to the inset self-draining deck, these craft offer a good degree of on-board security – a plus, especially with young children in mind. The Eagle’s chunky rearward-raked GRP arch mast and style of passenger seating give further indication of Continental-type styling.

Even though these RIBs are robust and able, the personnel at Brig UK openly admit that they’re not necessarily seeking to market these boats as all-out offshore craft. They see their market as being the ‘family’ sports boat-orientated market, and it’s in this sector that the company has done very well indeed. I can see the sense, therefore, in many of the fit-out choices Brig have made – the choice of seating being one such example.

The advantage of bench-styled seating, of course, is all the storage it offers in the unit itself beneath the seat top. And aboard these Eagles, one thing you quickly come to appreciate is the huge degree of storage they offer – even the 650 has something like five big locker compartments and a good-sized wet anchor locker. Indeed, every opportunity has been exploited on these boats to provide as much storage as possible accessed via robust hatches with good-quality s/s catches.

Unlike some other craft that feature bench-styled seating, the double helm seats on these craft are adjustable, so the user can have the option of either sitting behind the helm console or lifting the seat into the ‘bolster’ position. The latter works well and in particular assists the driver when additional forward visibility or control at the helm is required. I would, however, like to see a handhold/grab point provided on the port-side bulkhead to the 650’s seating unit. This would give the navigator additional security underway. When seated, a footplate to brace your feet against is a nice addition, and the protection afforded by the high screen is good on both models. The screen’s wrap-around steelwork also gives some useful handholds as well as safeguarding the cox and navigator from the screen’s leading edge.

But a word about the angle and height of the windscreen of the 650: it does have to be respected, particularly in lively conditions, where its close proximity and angle to one’s face becomes evident. The 780’s helm console and windscreen design are very different to the 650 and the latter is set well forward, hence its leading edge doesn’t present any safety issues as such. Nevertheless, people naturally grab the top of a screen to steady themselves even when just walking around a boat, so a wrap-around stainless rail to this item would be a practical addition.

An additional attachment to the rearward face of the double helm seat is a functional and attractively designed picnic table, which, when in place, contributes to a great rear-deck hospitality area and thus helps to maximise the social attributes of the high-sided stern seat beneath the arch. The upholstery to this seating, as in the case of the other seats on these vessels, is fashioned in Silvertex – a very high-quality waterproof material that remains impressively resistant to salt water and sunlight. This material and the quality of the seating upholstery add to the Eagle’s overall internal finish.

The substance and quality of the Eagle’s internal components is obvious, and in RIB terms at least, there appears to be a lot here for your money. This, as we said, is thanks to the typical Brig ‘standard’ specification being very generous and including such items as a Garmin GPS plotter and sounder, an Icom or Garmin VHF radio, boarding ladder, compass and navigation lights, stainless steel ski mast, colour-coordinated padded sun deck infills and, in the case of the 780, SeaDeck luxury deck surfacing, a freshwater shower, a Fusion sound system and even a bimini ‘sun top’.

Another key feature of the 780 flagship model is its extra-large centre console. Besides proving a very substantial helm station, internally this cavernous unit can either be installed with a sea toilet or provide a mini overnight cabin for two reasonably trim adults who don’t mind getting friendly! At the very least, it affords a fabulous ‘glory hole’ to keep all your kit and personal belongings safe and dry.

The ergonomics, in terms of the helm and related controls to these models, all work well, and the Brig offset helm console design not only gives easier access fore ’n’ aft but also helps balance the boat when underway, countering its natural prop torque. Rather oddly, both boats have exactly the same-size 340-litre fuel tank, which, bearing in mind that the 780 is rigged with a 300hp, means the cruising range of the smaller, 650 model is potentially far greater. That doesn’t make much sense to me. But the location of these underdeck tanks assists in keeping the COG of the craft down and aiding their stability and handling at speed.

The 650 is a very sporty boat and was a lot of fun to drive coupled to the Suzuki DF150 TGL in-line 4-stroke outboard, which featured on its transom on the day of the test. But its responsiveness, from ‘out of the hole’ and right up through the rev range, is impressive, topping out at a speed of just over 50mph. All credit to the 680, though – she remains impressively stable and sure-footed at speed and through all her turns.

The test day afforded us a variety of sea states, from flat clam protected water to a healthy chop and swell – so every opportunity to discover whether the 650 has a tendency to either fly her head or bury her nose! Happily, she did neither, and so the quality of ‘predictability’, being a prerequisite for a family-orientated sports boat, was met very satisfactorily in my view. She also proved an outstandingly dry boat in a beam sea – a lot of fun to drive and very level, both laterally and in her angle of attack. But as in the case of the 780 and the other models in the Eagle range, the fixed trim tab-like GRP transom extensions they feature do have a big bearing on not only how these boats run but also the extent to which they respond to the engine trim. The extensions certainly keep these boats very level, but because they are fixed/immovable, the degree to which the helmsman can affect the hull’s trim angle is lessened greatly to within a very small bandwidth. You couldn’t, for instance, trim these boats out fully to establish that minimum wetted area to the hull that not only reduces drag but also allows a planing hull to perform to its maximum degree. The design of these Brig Eagles simply will not let you go there. It’s as if the manufacturer has predetermined or preset the trim angle of the boat. That said, the possible ‘upside’ from the seller’s point of view is that a lot of boat owners have little or no idea how to trim a boat, and getting it wrong can result in a boat suffering from either poor or even dangerous handling characteristics. So this particular design detail to the Eagle’s hull is in fact a ‘limiter’, and it can’t be argued that it keeps these boats both safe and predictable to drive.

We spoke of the 680’s sporty feel, so what of the 780? How does she handle? You might think that she’s simply a bigger version of her smaller cousin. But you would be wrong, because the 780 feels every inch the ‘saloon’ as opposed to the ‘GT’. Yes, the vessel has a mighty turn of speed – no surprise there, of course, because she’s coupled to a truly monster-sized outboard: the Suzuki DF300 APX V6 Lean Burn outboard, no less (a stunning motor … smooth, ultimately powerful, ergonomically beautiful and impressive both in full-on performance mode and when being driven economically in her ‘sweet spot’ cruising setting). But again, like the 650, the nature of the 780 gives much reassurance in terms of her ability to handle this degree of power safely. I’m not convinced about the wisdom of putting massive amounts of power on the back of a leisure boat that could be sold to a customer who has little or no idea how to drive a fast and potentially lethal projectile – for that is what any fast planing boat can be in the wrong hands. This boat will hit 60mph – but full credit to her, throughout our trial the 780 handled her full complement of 300 ‘horses’ with ample ability, confidence and style, and for this reason the boat once again won my respect. I will point out, though, that on the test day, the boat suffered from a fair degree of ‘prop slip’, thanks to her transom ‘jacking plate’/the height of her engine appearing not to have been set up correctly. This was mildly irritating but an issue easily corrected.

Would I want to undertake long distances or go extended cruising with the 780? Not really – she’s not set up, or designed, for long distance or ‘enduro’-type cruising, especially in the types of conditions we can get around our coasts. That’s not a criticism, it’s just that this boat is primarily designed for more leisurely and coastal cruising, water sports, socialising and all-round family use. That doesn’t mean to say that you couldn’t cross the Channel in her because she certainly would look after you, but you’d obviously want to choose your conditions.

The advantage of the Eagle over a traditional, hard-hulled sports boat is its inherent RIB ability to get you home safely if the weather does blow up. Your friends and family are not going to get frightened or worried about the boat being overwhelmed because she’ll simply keep battling away pretty much through anything until you get back into port and tie up alongside the pontoon again. Thanks to the Eagle’s self-draining decks and the massive buoyancy of those big tubes, whatever water these boats might ship in a heavy sea will not present a problem. And at the end of the day, isn’t that why most people choose to buy a RIB – for that reassuring, ‘get you home’ comfort factor?

Both the 650 and the 780 are likable, well-made craft that have a real place in the UK market. They represent genuine, turnkey packages and are sold by people committed to delivering both quality and good value. Understanding your market is the secret of success, and as their record now shows, Brig UK, I believe, do just that.

Review

The largest RIB manufacturer in Europe, Brig, has reinvented the traditional workhorse into an inflatable fun machine with its latest offering, the Eagle 650H.

Inflatables like the Brig Eagle 650H are growinng in popularity.

We tend to think of the rigid inflatable boat (RIB) as a hard worker. Most we see are in service with maritime authorities like the Navy and Surf Life Saving Australia, or the Marine Rescue NSW in my hometown of Merimbula. But Australian Brig importer Neil Webster claims we are on the wrong track. He believes most of his customers are getting into RIBs because they are the most enjoyable boat on the market.

If you take a look around the marinas in the eastern suburbs of Sydney you might see something of a revolution taking place. Boaties in the Harbour City have lately eschewed monster cruisers, which see little use, for these smaller and more easily handled vessels, and they are clocking up serious hours on the water.

Want to go for a run to the fish markets? It's just a matter of jumping aboard the RIB, without the hassles of undocking, finding a pen, docking again and washing the boat down.

And because there's an inflated air-tube around its perimeter, this craft reacts more like a dodgem car - if you bump into someone's boat or wharf, it bounces off with no damage and no recriminations.



COLD WAR KID

Brig owes its existence to the end of the Cold War. When the Berlin Wall began to fall in 1989, the aeronautical industry in the isolated city of Kharkov, Ukraine, found it had no market for the Hypalon components it had been building. The engineers instead turned their talents and the production line into a more peaceful endeavour.

The fact the factory was a long way from any decent waterway didn't deter them from entering boat manufacturing, and the company has now survived two world economic meltdowns to outlast many older RIB builders.

In the Brig line-up, the Eagle-badged models are at the top end of a range that includes diminutive 2.75m tenders and passenger-commuter boats up to 7.8m. Contrasted against the white and light-grey models in the marina, the matte-black tubes of our 6.5m test boat really stood out and gave the boat a purposeful, almost military presence that camouflages a luxury interior.

Despite their deployment in rescue and government service, which sees them operating in extreme conditions, RIBs are not immediately considered for recreational boating and, in many ways, this is surprising.

It's hard to think of any other craft that could take the same kind of battering. They're tough, safe and just the shot for a family boat.



NO GOING DOWN

For many, the fear is that a "rubber" boat will not last the distance. While some RIB manufacturers use PVC for the tubes, Brig employs Hypalon, which is tougher and has much greater UV resistance.

As Neil Webster point outs, many surf rescue boats have seen service for more than 20 years and a well-maintained Brig kept under cover should be expected to last 30 years before the tubes need replacing. Even then, a complete replacement is $10,000 - a relatively minor expense after such time.

Added to this is the resilient nature of the tubes, which can absorb the sort of minor impacts that would see many aluminium and fibreglass boats heading to the repair shop.

Although the tubes dominate the boat's look, the fibreglass hull section is the main component of the build. The hull has box stringer sections and a Vinylester exterior, plus a composite deck to keep weight down for winching aboard a motoryacht as a tender. The tubes are bonded to the hull and constructed from five separate compartments in such a way that if one is damaged the others expand to fill the void. And if all compartments were to deflate, the boat can still float on the fibreglass hull.

This 650H is a new model and a complete rework of the popular 645 that was the best-selling Brig across the 40 countries in which they are available. Its layout is simple: a side console dominates the single-level deck, while a rear targa arch and a gradual rise to the bow add design dimensions to the low-slung hull, creating a sporty, well-proportioned image.

At the bow, a fibreglass casing houses pop-up cleats and an anchor roller and bollard, with a step to a sunpad and two storage hatches underneath. A twin seat is fitted to the front of the console and there is another lounge at the transom. Adding in the two helm seats brings the total to eight, so while the boat is rated for a maximum of 13 passengers, some will have to find seating on the tubes. Storage compartments at the bow, in the console and under seats make space for all the picnic and water toys any family could hope to use on a day out.

Settling into the helm with the bolster seat down and tucked in behind the acrylic glass screen, I noted a marked "racy" feel to the boat. The driver sits on the twin seat to the right, where a sporty steering wheel and side-mounted throttle control are well-placed for action.

Dash layout is excellent. A Garmin GPS551 colour chartplotter is set to the left and a covered glovebox holds small personal items, while a Fusion sound system has the mandatory MP3 connection.

SPEEDY ACTION

During our test, we pulled away from the wharf surrounded by multi-million-dollar cruisers in the absolute confidence that we weren't about to wreak costly damage to the fleet. At low speed, the Brig Eagle 650H is easily manoeuvrable and vision is unrestricted.

Once clear of the marina, the throttle was buried and the boat surged forward with a slight rise of the bow, the Honda BF225 hauling us out of the hole and lifting the hull up to its running stance. This thing boogies.

Top speed is 44kts (81.4kmh) and being close to the water makes you feel the thrill of every knot, with the wind whipping around for a caffeine-free morning wakeup. Of course, it's not necessary to hoon around at flat chat - back off for a more sedate cruise at around 3500rpm and there is still 27kts (50kmh) showing on the GPS.

This impressive performance comes courtesy of the quiet achiever strapped to the transom, the 225hp Honda four-stroke. The engine ran silently at trolling speed before emitting a healthy growl from the air intake as it accelerated and settled into its stride. The Eagle 650H could cope with a power rating down to 150hp, but the RIB is so well matched to the Honda it would be a shame to lose its acceleration and drive through corners.

The Brig sits flat at all speeds, the sponsons lifting clear all the way back to the transom. As the hull dips low over waves the tubes contact the water, cushioning the ride. The RIB leans into turns until it is restrained by the inside tube pushing up to maintain a level attitude. The deep-vee of the hull bites in at the same time, tracking the boat around in the direction in which it's pointed.

Even into sharp turns at 30kts (55.5kmh), the Eagle 650H goes wherever she's aimed, and passengers need to be aware of the driver's intent because the side force is enough to eject the unwary.

OUT TO SEA

With our speed runs over, Neil prised the wheel from my grip and we headed to a secluded beach, where the boat easily took advantage of its shallow draft and gently nudged up to the sand. Disembarking over the bow was easy - we didn't even get our feet wet.

Our test took place on one of those warm spring days, making it easy to imagine anchoring close to shore in a sheltered bay over summer for a swim and a picnic. There is a skipole to tow water toys and the swimladder and freshwater shower add another dimension to the boat's versatility.

A run out through the heads and down to Bondi showed the Brig Eagle 650H is capable of offshore cruising and fishing. It can slug it out in the chop and swell with the best of fibreglass boats, showing an effortless 30kts (55.5kmh) across 1m wind waves. Over some bigger swell at speed the RIB could be lifted clear of the water, landing softly and safely each time. And it's dry throughout, not a drop of water finding its way in.



THE WRAP

After banging on about the relative seaworthiness of fibreglass and alloy boats, it looks like it's time to throw the RIB into the mix. The Brig Eagle 650H is as soft riding as any boat of similar length and its forgiving nature makes it a sensible family cruiser. It might lack the weather protection of a cabin, but its length will accommodate a fun day out.

In Europe, the acceptance of RIBs as runabouts and for fishing is much greater than in Australia, so perception may be holding the Aussie public back. But a ride in an Eagle might just change all that.

BRIG Eagle 650 Review

Divine inspiration - Eagle 650H Brig Boats

Brig Boats shipyard comprises zealous and devoted ex-military aeronautical engineers working shoulder to shoulder in designing cutting edge technology for their high-standard boats. The finest substances are gathered around the world and incorporated into their boats in pursuance of creating vessels that meet or even exceed ISO and EEC standards. Furthermore, they have been implementing hydrodynamic theory to classical ideas culminating in prominent progression and development of their crafts. This inflatable entertainment machinery has been overwhelming bystanders all over Europe. It was particularly constructed as a luxury sport vessel. The Eagle 650H review is so much more than a mere description. It’s a divine inspiration for sport boat lovers.

The overall length of the Eagle 650H is 21 feet and 2 inches, while the beam is 8 feet and 2 inches granting a maximum number of up to 13 passengers. The Eagle 650H is an exquisite modification of the praised 645 model that was a chart-topping Brig across Europe. The performance of the boat is marked with 225 horsepower Suzuki DF 200 (3.6-liter V-6 block). "BRIG owners are very discerning boaters. Almost all of them have owned a number of boats, from trailer boats to luxury cruisers before they've come around to buying a BRIG and they're looking for quality, performance and versatility, which is exactly what the BRIG/Honda combination delivers." This engine gives the passengers ferocious fun since the skipper can push the craft onto the plane in just 1.5 seconds. The maximum speed of nearly 44 knots is gained in unbelievable 8 or 9 seconds. Due to the Eagle 650H design, the acceleration is achieved smoothly, whereas the dryness element is superb during the ride by virtue of the hull running high. The cruising speed is around 27 knots. Unquestionably, the engine provides without a doubt fun and confrontational driving experience which will make your day alive and vivid.

The Eagle 650H layout is elegant and sporty with a single-level deck and a side console. Aft targa arch and a steady rise to the bow emphasize unusual, still alluring design dimensions of the vessel. Furthermore, the Eagle 650H layout comprises aft bench seating three people situated amid the stanchions of a radar arch, a helm console and a V-shaped bow area. One can perceive that small elegant changes have been made with regards to its antecedent. Nevertheless, these changes made a powerful stamp to the new model. Regarding the space and functionality, the boat holds on to the excellence of the previous design. The boat’s space is vast and immense there's no doubt about it. The boat can accommodate 8 people and the storage capacity is more than impressive. Underneath the rear bench is a huge storage area placed. Due to its size, it’s perfect for sport equipment, for instance. Two lockers are conveniently positioned at the bow. Additionally, there is some extra space inside the helm console and under the seats.  

Pop-up cleats are positioned at the bow, together with an anchor roller and bollard plus one step to a convenient sunpad. On the opposite side of the boat, the stern, hard steps remain unchanged. Nevertheless, a huge platform on either sides of the engine marks this area of the boat. The cockpit and the helm seat is a story itself. The arrangement of the helm seat allows passengers on the aft bench much more space than in the previous model. The seating itself has been improved adding more variety and comfort. The helm is magnificent with more space to enable installation of the most recent large-screen GPS units. The Dash layout is intriguing with this Garmin GPS551 color chart plotter which is positioned to the port side. The chart plotter is simply an invaluable tool to assist with navigation. The dash also comprises an electric fuel gauge. A glove compartment can take small items and what’s a boat ride without good music to accompany it. A Fusion Sound System is installed and comes with necessary MP3 connection. The skipper is protected by an acrylic glass screen while utilizing a sporty steering wheel and a handy throttle control. The helm station is also equipped with a twin seat and well-designed bolsters granting secure standing position, but that’s not all. The comfort is boosted with handy grabbing points and a foot brace for speedy rides.

Brig Boats shipyard truly brainstormed all essential and valuable details to compliment comfort and luxury. LED navigational lights and centrally located fuel tank for a perfect weight distribution affirms their brainstorming ideas. Some noteworthy standard features are hull ventilation system, twin self-bailing unit, repair kit, battery container, battery isolation switch and rear cleats. Beside these standard features, there are some optional features that the customer may get. These features include a marine compass, ski mast, BRIG bimini, fresh water shower, overall cover and console cover, auxiliary motor bracket and a stainless steel ladder with platform. The Eagle 650H price is more than acceptable when taking into account all features and assets she possesses.

The Eagle 650H is the best selling family cruiser. The boat presents more developed and progressed its earlier model with distinguished quality construction, performance and endurance.

  Brig’s new Eagle 650 set to soar even higher

Brig’s new Eagle 650 set to soar even higher

 

The current model Brig Eagle 645 has been a huge success worldwide especially with quality-conscious Mediterranean boaters. So the designers at Brig have decided to make it even better and have created the new Brig Eagle 650.

Never ones to stick to the adage “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”, the Brig designers have incorporated a number of significant improvements and innovations. Every moulding above the waterline is all new resulting in a cutting-edge new model with sharper lines and greater visual impact.

They’ve added more surface area to the dash to accommodate navigation instruments including the very latest big screen GPS units.

For easy entry and exit there are now larger steps either side of the engine which will allow a wider boarding ladder to be fitted.  Once aboard, the seating has been updated for better comfort and support, and legroom increased for backseat passengers. The Brig designers have also been more generous in their use of stainless steel ensuring more functionality and durability.

In fact, as you look closely at the new Brig Eagle 650, you’ll find a wealth of improvements which will keep this spacious runabout at the forefront of Rigid Inflatable Boat design throughout 2012 and beyond. 

You can see this exciting new model up close at the Sydney International Boat Show from August 2nd – 6th at Darling Harbour. This worldwide launch of the new 650 is so significant that the Brig management team is jetting over from Europe especially for the occasion. So head straight for the back of Hall 5, stand 503, to get the low down on the high-flying new Eagle 650.
