Highfield Boats, one of the leading manufacturers of aluminium RIBs, has just added two models to its advanced Sport range.
The new Sport 560 (SP560) and Sport 800 (SP800) are making their autumn 2023 debut, showing off their cutting-edge styling and performance capability.
The New Sport 560 from Highfield Boats
The Sport 560 is based on the proven pedigree of its predecessor’s acclaimed hull form, while boasting a sleek look that will turn heads, including a newly designed A-frame and carbon console, plus a host of onboard features to provide a smooth ride and a comfortable watersports platform for a family day out.

The Sport 800, meanwhile, echoes all the superior detailing of Highfield’s flagship Sport 900, but at a size which can easily be towed or launched from a drystack. The Sport 800 demonstrates great sea-keeping abilities. There is plenty of seating for family and friends, with a choice of configurations. The easily accessed bathing platform and massive entertainment area, plus space for under-console toilet makes the Sport 800 a natural choice for a great day on the water. The added reassurance of a proven offshore hull design can let you explore far and wide in a range of conditions.
Both models feature standing-out details – brushed foam teak flooring throughout provides barefoot comfort, while superb diamond stitched upholstery finishes off the stylish interior. Highfield’s aluminium hulls are impermeable so there’s no chipping of gelcoat or worries about bringing the boat up a beach or onto a trailer. Nothing is left to chance with a huge list of standard features, including the platform ladder and the Sport 800’s fridge-table and shower kit plus the practical considerations such as the lifting points and towing eyes and newly styled optional roll-bar on both models.
Mathilde Delfour, Managing Director Europe for Highfield Boats, comments “We are proud of both these new models in the Sport range which have moved into the future of onboard styling and with a packed choice of features for comfort. Combined with the all-weather hull design the SP560 and SP800 both provide a versatile ride for crunching the miles as well as a great living space at anchor.”
