Highfield Classic 260


The Classic CL260 is an ideal, 9-foot inflatable RIB for any yacht or sailboat where space is limited. The double deck is self-draining which keeps feet dry while preventing backflow with its non-return valves.  Standard features also include a removeable seat, full length keel guard which protects the hull during beaching, a lockable locker in the bow hides a fuel tank, foot pump, oars and a repair kit.

Extra level of comfort for this double deck hulled dinghy that will keep your feet dry. The high quality finish and luxury look belies the fact that this range of tenders has been designed to work hard. A durable aluminum hull coupled with full length keel guards make these ideal for those beach-hopping days with friends and family.

The large weight savings achieved compared to equivalent GRP tenders means you’ll enjoy impressive performance with smaller engines, and with excellent payload capacities, the Classic range really does offer a tender for everyone.

The optional FCT console allows forward steering control for increased comfort and greater ease of navigation.

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