Classic 420



The versatile Classic 420 design offers fitting options that create either a fabulous family cruising RIB, a luxury tender or a hard working support vessel. Whatever layout you choose, you can be assured that your Classic RIB is built to last. The Classic range is designed with tough conditions in mind. The 10.5 gallon internal fuel tank, non-slip and self-draining deck and a 20º dead rise let you take on even the toughest conditions confidently.

With the impermeable qualities of our aluminum hulls there’s no need to worry about gelcoat chips, or putting the boat on a beach or a trailer. Your Highfield Classic Console RIB won’t delaminate over time, retaining its agile performance and weighing the same in 10 years time as the day you towed it away from the showroom.

All Classic RIBs are easy to tow, easy to launch and recover and easy to lift due to their light weight and integrated davit lifting eyes.  The hull of the Classic 420 is built of 4mm thick powder coated marine grade aluminum so its also built to last.
