Highfield Boats - 4700 boats built in 2019 and a new plant on the program 

On the occasion of the Boot in Düsseldorf, Yachting Art Magazine offers you to learn everything about the Highfield brand of semi-rigid boats, with Julien Carussi, the managing director of Highfield Boats (Video interview in French). 

Highfield produced in 2019 more than 4700 boats - RIBs and tenders - and employs 200 people; the brand is distributed in about 40 countries around the world and has a turnover of about 12 million dollars.

Highfield RIBs are made of aluminium, a material that offers many advantages in terms of weight and durability. Julien Carussi created Highfield in 2011 with Yves Brintet, a distributor present in sailing and RIBs, and Scott Wilson in Australia, who has some twenty years of experience in the construction of aluminium RIBs.  

The yard first produced hypalon and PVC tenders, in order to offer quality tenders and work with reference suppliers.

The brand signed several partnerships, in particular with Lagoon Catamarans, becoming over the years an essential reference in the tender market, then diversifying its production on larger units.

Today, Highfield has about thirty references in its catalogue - including tenders and semi-rigid boats - with boats ranging from 2.40 m to 8.60 m.
