Highfield Ultralite 290

Back

Highfield’s UL290 is the ideal, lightweight inflatable RIB when space onboard your yacht, or sailboat, is limited. The powder-coated aluminum hull provides strength and durability while the self-draining, anti-slip deck design keeps its 4 passengers dry, comfortable and safe. It comes standard with lifting points and towing eyes, which aid in launch and recovery, as well as a foot pump, removable seat, oars and a repair kit.

Because weight does matter, this single deck dinghy has been conceived keeping that motto in mind.
Their light weight make them a real alternative for those who may have chosen a soft bottom tender in the past but would prefer a hard hull for its performance. Ultralite tenders are roomy and strong, yet light and easy to transport. These little boats can be launched and recovered by a single man and are easy to be transported on a roof rack.

You will be impressed by their obvious quality level. The excellence of the finish only compares the detail of the ergonomics. The simple layout is combined with an uncluttered design and numerous standard accessories complete the picture.

The Ultralite’s are made of 2.5mm thick powder coated marine grade aluminium for the hull and 1100 Dtex fabric for the inflatable tube.
