The more you
know about inflatable boats the more you will appreciate the commitment to quality at
Achilles. This commitment can be seen in the meticulous attention to detail given to every
feature on every Achilles boat. Once you have the chance to compare inflatables you'll
will be impressed with all the little "extra steps" we take to insure the
highest level of quality in all our features. From convenience features like our unique
fold-down oar system, to safety features such as double-taped seam construction, no detail
has been overlooked in fitting our boats with the standard features that make them the
best in their class.
Our Confidence in the quality of Achilles boats is back by a full Five Year Warranty on
both the fabric and the seams. And this applies to all our boats, not just our
top-of-the-line models. That's because every one of our boats is designed to be the best.
QUALITY MEANS THE BEST FABRIC
The fabric is the single
most important factor in an inflatable boat, and no one makes a tougher, more durable
fabric than Achilles. We manufacture our own fabric, since this is the only way to
guarantee consistent quality.
Every Achilles boat is made with a durable DuPont Hypalon® reinforced fabric for the best
possible resistance to damage from abrasions, oil, gasoline, nylon or polyester core. Our
standard line boats and heavy-duty line boats are distinguished by the relative weight and
thickness (denier) of the core fabric. The inside of our core fabric is coated with two
layers of Neoprene because this elastomer iss extremely flexible and airtight. This
guarantees that Achilles boats will remain fully inflated longer, even in extreme.
QUALITY MEANS SAFETY
Safety and quality go
hand-in-hand, so we are always building more and better safety features into Achilles
boats. This is why we overlap our seams a full inch and add seam tape both outside and
inside for extra safety. No one reinforces their seams more thoroughly than Achilles.
More air chambers mean more safety; so you won't fine a competing inflatable with more
chambers than a comparable Achilles model. More often, you'll even discover that the
Achilles will have at least one more air chamber.
The list of safety features on Achilles boats goes on and on. Our fiberglass and wood
transoms are made to last. Our extra bow rings, safety grip handles, fuel tank fasteners
and full-length rubbing strakes are standard on most models because they make for a more
complete, safer boat. The Achilles bulkhead baffle system keeps our multiple air chambers
completely sealed off from one another, while working to equalize air pressure between
compartments. And the non-corrosive valves on all our boats are double-sealed for safety.
