Welcome to the YouTube Liveaboard Revolution, where tech-savvy cruisers are using social media to reach hundreds of thousands of followers, forgoing their own privacy to educate and inspire the next generation of trawler nuts. Join us behind the scenes of these trawler YouTubers, as we explore why they do it, how they do it, and what’s in it for them. Sponsored by Highfield Boats.
With 27,000 boats delivered globally since the brand’s beginning in 2011, Highfield Boats is now the world’s number one in the RIB tender sector and a global player in the 5-meter+ sector.
Performance and strength have always been at Highfield’s core. The brand has focussed on these two key values above anything else. Highfield’s hulls are dry-riding, very seaworthy and always over-built. Their reputation for durability is now world-renowned. The heavy-duty approach to design and build allows leisure and commercial owners to have the confidence needed to go that extra mile and to tackle conditions avoided by many others.
As such, Highfield has been chosen time and again as the support boat of choice for prestigious events worldwide, with fleets up to 50 strong. From Vendee Globe to the Invictus Games, Pan Am Games, Extreme Sailing Series, ORC Championships, TP52 & The Route Du Rhum. Not only is this trust shown in Highfield’s larger RIBs, but in their tenders too. Tender supply contracts to the likes of Lagoon paved the way for Highfield to become the supplier of choice for many charter operators, rental fleets and other high-end shipyards such as Fountaine Pajot, Outremer and Leopard.
Sustainability is also a huge part of Highfield’s DNA. All of the hulls and structures are built in aluminium, which is infinitely recyclable. In addition, Highfield powder coat in an enclosed area to ensure that their footprint remains low from the beginning of the manufacturing process through to the end of each product’s life.
With now over 45 distributor countries and a worldwide dealer network, you can be confident any support you need will always be on hand.
