HB-280LX
Our lightweight rigid hull line is 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. While maintaining the same hull and tube design as DX boats, these models are on average 20% lighter. 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 HBDX series, they are still loaded with all the high quality standard features for which Achilles is known.




HB-LX Standard Features include:


Pearl Gray Achilles CSM fabric; deep “V” fiberglass hull; full length tear drop rubbing strake; removable rowing seat; Drings for towing bridle; stainless bow eye; lifting hardware for davits; grab handles; Bow and stern carry handles; fold down locking oar system with oar holders; interior oar straps; two piece breakdown aluminum oars; gas tank tie down hardware; protective transom motor clamp plate; extra seat attachment patches (except HB240-LX); foot pump and maintenance kit.
