The new 2021 SPORT 560 is the next generation of Highfield boats. Highfield is celebrating its 10th year in the market this year and in this relatively short period of time has now delivered over 30,000 boats to happy customers in 38 countries. Highfield is already the largest aluminum hull RIB builder in the World and for 2021 they are introducing 11 new RIB models including the SP560 which uniquely combine luxury high-end features with a high-performance heavy-duty aluminum hull to give you the best of both worlds.

The new 2021 Highfield SPORT 560 is a perfect boat for . Its heavy-duty deadrise hull combined with a 115hp outboard rating provide a smooth ride to the closest beach and can get you home safe when conditions get rough. All Highfield hulls are light but built to be durable and are chromated before powder-coating paint is applied to avoid any chance of corrosion. The SPORT 560 also features a built-in 28-gallon fuel tank that is tucked away under the deck, keeping the cockpit clean and further contributing to the smooth ride.

The helm offers more than one driving position, thanks to the flip-up standing bolster. The upright console with tall tinted windscreen and grabrail accommodates a 9” chartplotter for navigation and there is an extra-wide bow boarding step with roller and cleat for easy anchoring. While at anchor, there is lots of room to hang out in the wide comfortable bow seating area, which can be easily converted to a lounging sundeck. Aft is another seating area with folding table and cup holders for lunch on the water. Watersports lovers will want to add the optional removable ski pole or towing arch and getting out of the water is easy due to the large, flat rear transom area with telescopic boarding ladder. All deck surfaces have comfortable teak pattern EVA which is soft on the feet and won’t get hot. The SPORT 560 also offers four dry storage compartments including an extra-deep rear seat storage area, all with hydraulic pistons to hold up lids for easy stowing.

The Highfield Boats warranty is the best in the industry offering registered owners an extension to 5 years on the hull and either 5 years on the Valmex® PVC tubes or 10 years for ORCA® Hypalon. This includes the warranty on the seams as well as the fabric which is unprecedented in this category. Rated for 12 persons and 115hp, the New SPORT 560 has everything you need for a great day on the water.
