HB-AX Series

Rigid hull series

New HB-335AX Pro Commercial and Rescue RIB!

The Achilles HB-AX aluminum hull series expands again in 2019 with the addition of the HB-335AX PRO. This new model is only available in red for increased visibility and is designed for heavy duty commercial and rescue use. It has a full length splashguard with lifelines, abrasion/wear patches on top of the tubes, and has a paddle in place of oars and oarlocks. Like all Achilles HB-AX models it features a tough, powder coated marine grade aluminum hull with a full length keel guard to stand up to frequent beachings, coral, rocks, and other rough surfaces. The double heavy-duty rubbing strake on all HB-AX models offers addition protection to the tubes from rocks, docks, and pilings. All HB-AX models also come with a vented bow locker large enough to accommodate a gas tank, and the ability to run a fuel line under the deck that enables you to free up deck space that is usually taken up by the fuel tank and fuel line. It also helps distribute weight more evenly by moving the gas tank forward. The flat deck with non-skid patches also offers better traction, safety, and comfort. This unique design also allows water to flow under the deck to keep your feet dry if any water gets into the boat.

 

New Seat and Console Kits Now Available!

We are now offering the perfect solutions for you to turn the best "open" RIB's on the market into the best "Deluxe" RIB's. We are now offering three different seat and console options.

 

The "Deluxe"

The Deluxe seat and console kit (part #HB4SCKIT) package includes a bench seat with folding backrest, a console with base and steering helm, and a cushion for the forward bow locker and is very attractively priced. The unique design of the console allows the base to be mounted as shown with a side seat (in the HB315DX) or it can also be mounted fore to aft in the HB350DX and HB385DX if a console with a forward-facing seat if desired.

 

The "Basic"

The basic seat and console kit (part #HBSCBASIC) is a 2-piece kit that has a one-piece console with steering helm and a fold down seat base. This option offers you the least expensive way to turn your open Achilles into a console boat. Although it doesn't come with a bow cushion – one can be ordered as an option for this kit or for any open DX RIB (part #HBBOWCUSHION).

 

The Hula-Helm

The Hula-Helm (part #HBHULAHELM) is a unique one-piece tubular stainless-steel seat and console combination unit that has a folding steering arm and seatback which allows the unit to become very low profile. This is convenient when trailering the boat, covering the boat, and may also be beneficial when mounting the boat on davit systems. It may also enable the boat to be stored in a "garage" on a larger yacht. It has a large fiberglass storage box under the seat cushion, and a fiberglass piece on which the steering helm is mounted. This area can also be used to install gauges, switches, and your engine controls.
