Highfield Boats, North America’s best-selling RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boats) brand, announces the launch of five brand-new models for 2023. These rugged RIBs include the new Highfield Sport 900 and Sport 760, which make their North American debuts at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), Bahia Mar Land #303, on October 26-30, 2022. In addition, Highfield is proud to introduce the Sport 700, Sport 660, and Sport 600.
Highfield’s Sport Series RIBs are premium yacht tenders and day boats ranging from 10’ to 30’ featuring upscale styling and amenities. The five new models for 2023 also have new, military-grade high-tensile chromated and powder-coated aluminum hulls based on the builder’s commercial-quality Patrol series RIBs for enhanced stability, seaworthiness and long-lasting durability.
“These new models are all in the upper size range of our Sport Series, including Highfield’s new flagship, the Sport 900, an offshore high-performance RIB nearly 30 feet in length,” said Highfield Boats President Christophe Lavigne. “We sell large RIBs all over the world, but we have focused primarily on marketing our smaller Highfield Boats in North America – until now. Following several years of meteoric growth in the region, we are excited to be launching these big new Sport models in North America. We designed their decks to meet the demands of American boaters with expanded seating and deck space, along with new eating and lounging areas including built-in sinks and refrigerators in the larger boats.
