Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www.iso.org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

assessment, as well as information about ISO’s adherence to the WTO principles in the Technical Barriers

to Trade (TBT) see the following URL: Foreword - Supplementary information
The committee responsible for this document is ISO/TC 188, Small craft.

This first edition, together with ISO 6185-1, ISO 6185-2 and ISO 6185-3, cancels and replaces

ISO 6185:1982, which has been technically revised.

ISO 6185 consists of the following parts, under the general title Inflatable boats:

— Part 1: Boats with a maximum motor power rating of 4,5 kW
— Part 2: Boats with a maximum motor power rating of 4,5 kW to 15 kW inclusive
— Part 3: Boats with a maximum motor power rating of 15 kW and greater

— Part 4: Boats with a hull length of between 8 m and 24 m with a motor power rating of 15 kW and

greater

This corrected version of ISO 6185-4:2011 incorporates the following corrections:

— A cross-reference to 5.2.2.7 has been added in Table 1, row 3.

— The formula in 5.2.2.7 has been replaced and the unit for d in Table 1 has been changed to mm.

In addition, Figure A.1 has been rotated through 90°.

INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO 6185-4:2011(E)
Inflatable boats —
Part 4:
Boats with a hull length of between 8 m and 24 m with a
motor power rating of 15 kW and greater

WARNING — Attention is drawn to the completion process whereby structural items, for

example steering consoles, seats and superstructures, are installed by parties other than the

manufacturer of the boat. These items should be installed to comply with the relevant clauses of

this part of ISO 6185 so it can be ensured that any such installations do not invalidate the original

assessment.
1 Scope

This part of ISO 6185 specifies the minimum safety characteristics required for the design, materials,

manufacture and testing of rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) with a hull length of between 8 m and 24 m and

with a motor power rating of 15 kW and greater.

This part of ISO 6185 is applicable to Type IX and Type X RIBs intended for use within the operating

temperatures of −20 °C to +60 °C.

— Type IX: Powered boats, fitted with a buoyancy tube covering at least 85 % of the port and starboard

sides, suitable for navigation in inshore and sheltered waters, up to and including wind force 6

Beaufort and significant wave heights up to 2 m (design categories C and D), with a hull length of

between 8 m and 24 m and with a motor power rating of 15 kW and greater.

— Type X: Powered boats, fitted with a buoyancy tube covering at least 85 % of the port and starboard

sides, suitable for navigation in waters, up to wind force 8 Beaufort and significant wave heights

up to 4 m (design category B), with a hull length of between 8 m and 24 m and with a motor power

rating of 75 kW and greater.

NOTE 1 General arrangements of typical boats of Types IX and X are given in Annexes A and B, respectively.

NOTE 2 For boats with power ratings of 4,5 kW and less, refer to ISO 6185-1. For boats with power ratings of

4,5 kW to 15 kW inclusive, refer to ISO 6185-2. For boats with a hull length of less than 8 m and power rating of

15 kW and greater, refer to ISO 6185-3.

Boats outside these types or outside of Type IX and Type X, as defined, are outside of the scope of ISO 6185.

NOTE 3 For inflatable boats with a hull length greater than 8 m, it is suggested to use the requirements of

ISO 6185-3.
