Achilles Inflatable Boats

HB-280LX

stock Number:

A lightweight rigid hull series packed with high performance features.

The Achilles HB-LX boats provide the critically acclaimed performance of the Achilles DX deep “V” 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.

 

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.
