Rigid Hulls - HB Series
HB Boats

A pioneer in the development of rigid-hulled inflatables, Achilles takes them to a new level in 2006.
With the introduction of the new 12'4” HB-385, Achilles now offers boaters six quality RIBs packed with an array of features that epitomize “attention to detail.” From the strategically placed grab handles to the double heavy-duty rubbing strakes, no detail has been overlooked in producing fiberglass-hulled inflatables that look great and perform magnificently. With four popular tender sizes, you will find an Achilles HB that works – and plays – for you. Their handsome styling and distinctive Pearl Gray color belie the traditional reliability and rugged durability for which Achilles boats are famous. The large buoyancy tubes on all six models, in combination with the level non-skid floor made possible by the full deck liner, result in an extremely stable and exceptional looking tender.

Pearl Gray Hypalon/Neoprene fabric; double heavy duty full length tear drop rub strake: removable rowing seat; D-rings for towing bridle; stainless bow eye; lifting hardware for davits; lift and carry handles; Hypalon grab handles; fold down locking oar system with oar holders; helmsman grip; two piece breakdown aluminum oars; gas tank tie down hardware; protective transom motor clamp; foot pump; and maintenance kit.

Rigid Hulls - HB-DX Series
HB-DX Boats

Introducing the HB-280 DX, a Brand New Deluxe RIB for 2006! These deluxe hard bottom inflatables offer boaters the best combination of style, performance and functionality. Sleek, Euro-style tubes along with lateral seams give them a stylish edge over other RIBs. A deeper “V” fiberglass hull delivers superior performance while a built-in bow locker provides both a seat and a safe, dry place for gear.

If you want to take a step above the norm in a hard-bottomed tender, step up to an Achilles HB-DX RIB. Like every Achilles boat they are made with Hypalon® fabric so they can handle the burning sun of the tropics or cold northern waters without fading or deteriorating. And with their sporty side, they really put “fun” into functionality. Choose a rigid-hulled inflatable that gives you a little extra. Choose an Achilles HB-DX in 2006.

HB-DX Standard Features Include:
Pearl Gray Hypalon/Neoprene fabric; deep “V” fiberglass hull; bow locker; double heavy duty full length tear drop rub strake; helmsman grip; removable rowing seat; D-rings for towing bridle; stainless bow eye; lifting hardware for davits; lift and carry handles; Hypalon grab handles; fold down locking oar system with oar holders; interior oar straps; two piece breakdown aluminum oars; gas tank tie down hardware; protective transom motor clamp; foot pump; and maintenance kit.
