Achilles Inflatable Boats

HB-270AL

stock Number: 12456

Our aluminum-hulled inflatable tenders incorporate the great features and performance of our fiberglass rigid hull inflatables.

We’ve incorporated all the best features of our pacesetting HB fiberglass hull inflatable boats into the new HB-AL series. These rugged boats feature a marine grade aluminum hull that is powder-coated to ensure a smooth, long lasting finish. They offer the advantage of being lightweight yet remarkably strong and durable. A modified V hull, combined with their light weight, allow HB-AL boats to cut through water efficiently with less horsepower.

The HB-240AL and BH-270AL are single hull models that keeps the weight of both boats under 100 pounds. The HB-310AL incorporates an additional deck liner resulting in a more level surface allowing for ease in getting in and out of the boats. All models have nonskid panels for better traction, safety and comfort.

All of this is in addition to a host of other great features perfected by Achilles through our years as a leader in RIB design and inflatable boat technology.

The HB-AL boats are a great choice for boaters who want a fuel-efficient and well-performing RIB that can handle rocky coastlines, coral, frequent beaching and anything else you can throw at them.

 

New Seat and Console Kits Now Available!

We are now offering the perfect solutions for you to turn the best “open" RIB’s on the market into the best “Deluxe" RIB’s. We are now offering three different seat and console options.

 

The “Deluxe"

Introduced last year, the Deluxe seat and console kit (part #HB4SCKIT) package includes a bench seat with folding backrest, a console with base and steering helm, and a cushion for the forward bow locker and is very attractively priced. The unique design of the console allows the base to be mounted with a side seat (in the HB315DX) or it can also be mounted fore to aft in the HB350DX and HB385DX if a console with a forward-facing seat is desired.

 

The “Basic"

The basic seat and console kit (part #HBSCBASIC) is an attractive two-piece kit that has a one-piece console with steering helm and a fold down seat base. This option offers you the least expensive way to turn your Achilles into a console boat. Although it doesn’t come with a bow cushion, one can be ordered as an option for this kit or any open DX RIB (part #HBBOWCUSHION).

 

The Hula-Helm

The Hula-Helm (part #HBHULAHELM) is a unique one-piece tubular stainless steelseat and console combination unit that has a folding steering arm and seatback which allows the unit to become very low profile. This is convenient when trailering the boat, covering the boat, and may also be beneficial when mounting the boat on davit systems, It may also enable the boat to be stored in a “garage" on a larger yacht. It has a fiberglass storage box under the seat cushion in which a battery and gas tank can be installed, and a fiberglass piece on which the steering helm is mounted. This can also be used to install gauges, switches, and your engine controls.
