Highfield’s Sport 800 RIB Boat is the first of its series. Highfield’s construction, design, and in-house fabrication lead to a very well-built boat that looks great. It reached over 52 mph and got us nearly 3 miles to the gallon. Most boats of this size, traditional fiberglass boats, don’t get this type of efficiency or speed.
The helm and nice built-in drip edge help keep things in place and provide some relief for drainage. Some notable features include two swim platforms, two swim ladders, a cockpit table with dedicated storage for it, and a standard drawer-style refrigerator that slides out of the bench. The deep V-hull allows it to be stiff and light, and boy is this light! With twin 150 Mercury, it weighed 3600 pounds, which is half the weight of a competitively-sized fiberglass boat.
