Highfield 2021

Classic 260

The perfect combination of lightweight and usability in a small open tender

lightweight, durability and storage

The Classic 260 can handle your lifestyle. Go anywhere and relax.

Classic 260

The compact 8’ 6” model can carry 4 people, making it ideal for short trips. The high quality finish and luxury look belies the fact that this range of tenders has been designed to work hard. A durable aluminum hull coupled with a full length keel guard make these ideal for those beach-hop- ping days with friends and family. The weight savings achieved, compared to equivalent fiberglass RIBs, means you’ll enjoy impressive performance with smaller engines, and with a range of sizes, the Classic range really does offer a tender for everyone.
