These deluxe hard bottom inflatables offer boaters the best combination of style, performance and functionality.



Sleek, Euro-style tubes give them a stylish edge over other RIB’s. A deep “V” fiberglass hull delivers superior performance while a built-in bow locker provides both a seat and a place for gear. If you want to take a step above the norm in a hard-bottomed tender, step up to an Achilles HB-DX RIB. Like every Achilles boat they are made with our own Achilles CSM fabric so they can handle the burning sun of the tropics or cold northern waters without fading or deteriorating. Choose a rigid-hulled inflatable that gives you a little extra. Choose an Achilles HB-DX.
