The Boats

Highfield RIBs are trusted partners to the Vendee Globe and Extreme 40s

Our fleet of Highfield Patrol 760s, powered by Honda 250hp outboards, are a commercial-quality RIB designed and hand built to withstand tough conditions yet still offer comfort and luxury.

With their super deep V hull and large diameter tube, the Patrol 760s offer high manoeuvrability, high safety and a soft dry ride! And with a top speed in excess of 45 knots you’re guaranteed to get where you want to go - fast!

Enough room for everyone

Our fleet of 7.6m RIBs are each licensed to carry up to 12 people (including the driver), so you’ll have plenty of room for family and friends. The Patrol boats carry large loads and plane quickly and easily. With safety, toughness and reliability, the Patrol range is a natural choice for the Premier RIB Club.
