About this HBI 30


The HBI 30 is not just a RIB, designed by the renowned C. Raymond Hunt Associates and built by HBI (Hard Bottom Inflatables) she is stylish and performs like very few others.  TRUANT was highly optioned out when ordered to be his quick trip boat when not using a larger custom 55' yacht.  She is an ideal day boat for a couple or small group with the ability to to make longer trips than others can thanks to soft dry ride.  She could also serve as an exceptional tender to a much larger yacht. These seldom come on the market and we doubt she will be available for long.

The Hunt designed HBI 30 is a beautifully detailed and beautiful running boat.  On a day with wind velocities at 12-15 knots out of the NW with an 18" chop and 4' ground swell from the SW while running at all possible angles and speeds I could not get one drop of spray on the windshield.  We were dealers for HBI for several years and I had a lot of hours running the smaller 22' sister but the performance of this HBI 30 is especially impressive!
