Welcome to Falcon Inflatables

Pioneering manufacturer and global distributor of award winning, world-class rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) since 1985.
We are a boat manufacturing company situated in a small town called Swellendam in the Western Cape of South Africa. We’re a family owned and managed business which was started in the early 1980’s by Marius Heyneman. His passion for racing inflatable boats in difficult and technical water conditions all over Southern Africa, eventually led to his hobby becoming a successful boat designing and manufacturing business.



Our Falcon boats have been exported to over 30 countries. From our world class facility, containers are loaded on-site with exceptional detail and care, so that your Falcon boat does not get damaged in transit. We can ship to any location in the world direct from the factory or you can find a dealer near you.

We use the Falcon 650 for boat private tours dedicated to observation and snorkeling with marine wildlife in Moorea, French Polynesia. This boat is beyond our expectations, very comfortable, but dynamic and easy driving as well and it makes the happiness of our guests. We navigate in the lagoon and offshore without being bothered by rough seas as it can go everywhere no matter the weather conditions. Hope to buy a second one in the next years. Thank you Falcon Inflatables!

Dear Chris and team, just a big thanks for the excellent boat that you guys delivered to us in Jersey late last year. The Falcon 520 really has surpassed my expectations. For many years while living in South Africa I went out with Zodiacs, so this my first Falcon and I have to say the boat performs superbly. The 115 Yammi was a good choice and the suggestion to fit a stainless speed prop was also a good one. More than ample power to have a few adults on board and still pull someone behind the boat. I have to date only racked up around 20 hours on the engine but I’ve had it out in some very choppy waters in the Channel between Jersey and France with three of us up and the boat has really come into its own. Surprisingly to me it was a fairly dry ride. I’m also very happy with the workmanship and build quality of the Falcon. It’s very nicely finished off. No complaints there. Chris I also want to compliment your team on the after sales service even from here in Jersey. I have had a few queries which they have been very helpful with and sorted out quickly. If anyone wants to chat about exporting a Falcon from South Africa aboard, I’m more than happy to chat to them. You have all my details. Overall very happy and can definitely recommend the Falcon Rib. It’s a great boat. Best regards, Warren.
