US builder will offer its Highfield Classic and Classic Deluxe models branded for the Leopard line of 40ft-58ft boats

Highfield Boats USA has entered a strategic partnership to supply custom tenders for Leopard Catamarans sailing and power vessels.

Highfield, which manufactures aluminium rigid-hull inflatable boats (RIBs), will offer its Highfield Classic and Classic Deluxe models branded for the Leopard line of 40ft-58ft boats.

“We are delighted to enter into this strategic partnership with Leopard Catamarans, a world leader in the luxury catamaran market,” said Tom Watson, general manager, Highfield Boats USA, in a statement. “Leopard Catamaran owners will be able to rest assured that their boat is matched with a high-quality, aluminium-hull RIB that will fit their yacht and serve all their tender needs.”

Leopard Catamaran buyers can now order their new yacht packaged with a lightweight yet rugged and durable Highfield RIB that has been pre-selected to fit their catamaran’s specific requirements for tender size, weight and storage, according to the statement.

Based on yacht size, owners may choose a customized 10’2”, 11’10” or 12’6” custom RIB available with an open configuration or low-profile helm console, powered by Yamaha outboard options ranging from 15hp to 40hp.

Both companies will cross-promote the alliance at the Miami International Boats Show (MIBS) in February.
