In just six years, Highfield Boats has become the world’s number one aluminium hulled RIB manufacturer. Established in 2011, Highfield Boats has developed into worldwide boat builder with a complete line of rigid-inflatable hull boats (RIBs). Highfield now offers small tenders from 2.4m, all the way up to a full line of heavy duty RIBs at home on any ocean.

Highfield rigid hull inflatable boats (RIBs), featuring exclusive powder-coated aluminium hulls, can trace their design heritage to the Australian line of Swift Boats. Developed to handle the tough conditions found along the Great Barrier Reef, Swift rigid-hull inflatable boats are renowned for their durability and performance.

Sundance Marine in Victoria is now selling these fantastic boats exclusively through its Chandlery and Service Centre.

Highfield’s state-of-the-art production facility is located in Weihai, China. Under European management the facility covers 10,000 sqm, employs 200 staff and has adopted the latest technologies available to guarantee production of the finest RIBs money can buy.
