• 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.

From $3,495

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.
