We have the Highfield 310 in Orca Hypalon. Had it about two years (full time cruising, very few marinas
, tropics and moderate latitudes). Have had to give it 1-2 pump
strokes of air about every 6 months or so. Overall we are reasonably satisfied. I’d probably rate 4 out of 5.
It does get a bit of spray from up under the bow when on a plane, even in flat water
. I also think it is a little more difficult to get on a plane than other boats I’ve used, but I’ve never tested side-by-side so that’s a very subjective observation.
