We still see Achilles boats well in excess of 20 years old in regular use.

Contact us if you would like more information or a printed catalogue.

















The Highfield range of alloy hull inflatables shown below have been designed in Australia to meet our varied environment and lifestyle.
Produced using either Valmex® PVC fabrics from Mehler Texnologiesof Germany or Orca Hypalon from Pennel & Flipo, both regarded as among the best available. Valmex® boat fabrics are wear and abrasion resistant, UV and weather resistant, insensitive to high temperature conditions and dirt repellent. The PVC tubes are of a welded, not glued, construction for superior strength, air tightness and and durability.
Glued PVC seams have a history of problems in Australia and in particular tropical regions. Our workshop has seen plenty of these problems over the years and we definitely recommend quality welding as a superior product.
Hypalon fabrics are ORCA® from Pennel & Flipo in France. ORCA® fabrics are considered as the best inflatable boat fabrics. Very tough, UV and hydrocarbon resistant, ORCA® is the best option for frequently used boats and a must in tropical areas. Unlike PVC, Hypalon glued seams present excellent ageing when glued properly using suitable 2-part polychloroprene adhesive.
The rigid hulls are a craftsman built high tensile alloy, zinc chromated & powder coated  in house.

Congratulations to Dave Swift and Steve Harrison who have completed the Round Ireland Powerboat and RIB Challenge 2013. 
Dave & Steve took the challenge to go through this 1,000 mile course with an OM 490. Amongst the 30 teams that were on the start line, a third gave up. Only a few RIBs were below 6 meters.
It took the fleet 10 days to complete the challenge. For 3 days they had force 7 wind and wave height about 6-7m. They returned in one piece and the boats did not suffer any damage.
 Link to more details here

The other OM 490 that you will see on the pictures was driven by the only girls crew that took the challenge.
