Highfield Boats, the world’s largest builder of aluminum-hull rigid inflatable boats (RIBS), launches a new design innovation with its GT Console series, which includes the Highfield Classic 340 (11′2″), 360 (11′10″) and 380 (12′10″) GT Console models.
Where Highfield’s slim-line FCT Console deck configuration saves space and weight, and its Sport Console adds luxury amenities, the GT Console version offers the best of both worlds, combining light weight, sporty looks and luxury features. Wet weights for these boats start at just 445 lbs. – including outboard engine, rigging and fuel. Substantially lighter than a comparably sized RIB with a fiberglass hull, they offer better fuel consumption and performance with the same horsepower engine.
Highfield Classic GT Console series RIBS feature:
- Fiberglass helm console with steering wheel
- Dashboard space for a 5″ chartplotter
- Side seat with storage underneath
- Comfortable rear seat with under seat storage area
- Navigation lights
- Bow cushion
- A range of color options including white, black, light gray, dark gray and black.
Known for their high-quality finish and stable, dry ride, Highfield Classic RIBS are designed to serve as tenders to a wide variety of sailboats and motoryachts. Offering a six-person seating capacity, the GT Console series models feature a raised floor that will keep your passengers’ feet and gear dry even in choppy seas. Their light weight make them easy to launch, retrieve and store on board. Yet, thanks to Highfield Boats’ high tensile chromated aluminum hull and full-length keel guard, they are also rugged and seaworthy, allowing you to take them on fun adventures away from the mother yacht, or use them a primary boat.
