2014 HIGHFIELD UL 290 CSM ultralight RIB

2014 HIGHFIELD UL 290 CSM ultralight dinghy. This RIB weighs 79lbs and can be carried very easily. Picture was from when new. Still in Excellent condition. CSM is same material as Hypalon(dupont). Comes with 2 oars plus a spare, pump, middle seat, towing bridle, 2 life preservers, repair kit, dry bag and a long floating painter. Planes out easily with 2 people, dog and supplies using 8hp OB. Paid $3,500 new. Located in Portland, Maine. Pickup only. $2,600

Highfield is a high quality manufacturer that makes RIBs for the Australian military. We narrowed down our choices to Highfield and AB. We chose the Highfield because it had a powder coated hull and the oars stow in a ready to use position unlike the AB where the oars stow down inside the boat.
