Achilles Aluminum Hull.Achilles Boats has introduced an aluminum-hulled inflatable boat into its model lineup for the first time in 2015. In addition to a high-tensile, marine grade aluminum hull, the new HB-310AL features the same durable, high quality Achilles CSM fabric used in all Achilles boats.

“We’ve incorporated all the best features of our pacesetting HB fiberglass hull inflatable boats into the new HB-310AL,” says Achilles Sales Manager Jeff Frank. “So we now have a great option for boaters who prefer RIBs and want a fuel-efficient option that can also handle rocky coastlines, coral and frequent beachings.”
