This is our new dinghy, a brand-new Highfield CL 260! Boy, are we proud 🤗

Since our old one gave up this summer (R.I.P.), it was clear we needed to buy a new one. The brand didn’t matter so much, but it had to have an aluminium bottom. Plus the price should be reasonable. Plus it had to be mint-green…haha, just kidding (would have been nice, though…). Even a good second hand one would have been OK. But no luck there, as it turned out.

Anyway, after searching for a while and trying to get offers from different distributors in Europa (mainly from Italy), we were positively surprised to find a company in Switzerland, Kohler Nautec in Riazzino.

Apparently, they are the exclusive importer for Highfield, so we hit the right place! ⚓

I wrote to them, asking if they had a CL 260 in white on stock. If not, how long the lead time would be. And if they could ship it to us.

The answer came immediately: They had a new Highfield CL260 in light grey from 2018 on stock, and we would get a discount of 15%! And yes, it could be shipped through a freight forwarder for a fair price.

Well, light grey or white………. so what! The brand is well-known and it convinced us totally. Not cheap, but high quality! So we placed the order and a week later we had it in our garage!

Cool, it is a great dinghy indeed, with even a bow locker. Four metal loops to hang it on the davits are placed in the aluminium bottom, which is perfect! No weight on the rubber hulls.

So, Summer 2022, we’re more than ready for you 😎

    1. Den är nog tillräckligt stor. Aluminium botten är 170cm långt och bredden är 80cm. Ute dimensioner är 260cm lång och bredd 170cm. Där är plats för 3 plus 1 personer. Lite beroende vad varje person väger så klart om det är 4 eller 3. Man kan lasta 300kg sedan plats mässigt är det inget problem. Man sitter på gummi pontonerna normalt.
      Kramar
