2024 Achilles HB-280LX

Year 2024
Length 9'2 ft / 2.80 m

The Achilles HB-LX boats provide the critically acclaimed performance of the Achilles DX deep ā€œVā€ fiberglass hull design in a lighter RIB. They also have the same tube design as the DX series, yet a modification of the deck design and removing the bow locker results in a RIB that is on average 20% lighter than the same size DX model.

This means they can perform well with smaller engines and can be carried or transported more easily. Despite their lighter weight and lower cost compared to the HB-DX series, they are still loaded with all the high quality standard features for which Achilles is known.
