Achilles Boats has introduced an aluminum-hulled inflatable boat into its model lineup for the first time in 2015. In addition to a high-tensile, marine grade aluminum hull, the new HB-310AL features the same durable, high quality Achilles CSM fabric used in all Achilles boats.
“We’ve incorporated all the best features of our pacesetting HB fiberglass hull inflatable boats into the new HB-310AL,” says Achilles Sales Manager Jeff Frank. “So we now have a great option for boaters who prefer RIBs and want a fuel-efficient option that can also handle rocky coastlines, coral and frequent beachings.”
The lightweight aluminum hull with its modified V design allows the Achilles HB-310AL to cut through the water more efficiently than other types of hulls. It is also powder-coated to ensure a smooth finish that is both beautiful and long-lasting.
“We believe the HB-310AL offer boaters the ultimate in lightweight strength, durability, seaworthiness and fuel efficiency.” Says Frank.
The HB-310AL also features a full-length deck liner with non-skid panels to provide superior traction and also keep feet dry. This is addition to a host of other innovative features perfected by Achilles through years as a leader in rigid hull inflatable technology.
The HB-310AL and the other 38 inflatable models in the Achilles 2015 lineup can be seen on the Achilles website at www.achillesboats.com.
