Aakron Introduce new 6.6m RIB

Barry 2019-08-03

Aakron Xpress Marine, NZ distributors of Highfield RIBs, have announced they will be introducing the 6.6m Patrol model at the upcoming Auckland On-the-Water-Boat Show.

Along with the new 6.6m Patrol will be a couple of models on static display and another on the marina to provide first hand sea-trials to anyone interested. The Patrol model powered by Suzuki engines were used in large numbers as the support RIBs for the recent ‘Route du Rhum’ ocean race from France to Guadeloupe.

Highfield is the largest manufacturer of alloy hulled RIB’s in the world and their boats can be seen anywhere that sailors gather.  Many of their boats are already used around NZ as tenders, fishing or dive boats as well as general recreational use. Their range includes every conceivable form from 2.4m air-floored roll-ups to 8.6m ocean-going search and rescue RIBs.

Highfield have a strong focus on quality and innovation with numerous intelligent design features and optional accessories. The hull material is hi-tensile 5083 low corrosion alloy while the pontoon fabric is either German Mehler PVC with welded seams or Orca Hypalon for ultimate durability. All components and assembly are done in-house so quality of all parts and the final construction are carefully controlled.

Back up service is superb and available around the world with a ‘customer is always right’ attitude which is refreshingly different from many manufacturers these days.

Aakron Xpress can be contacted via a network of dealers around NZ or directly at their North Shore show-room, Auckland. 

And if you happen to be going to the Sydney Boat Show this weekend, check out the Highfield display there at Stand 403.
