  Avon Inflatables has taken on the UK marketing and distribution of Bombard inflatable boats. The shift in the positioning of this range, which took effect from September 2002, follows the Zodiac International Group policy to offer Bombard craft alongside Avon products, from one network of UK dealerships.

The new arrangement means that Avon will now be able to offer its customers a comprehensive range of dual branded leisure craft from a budget PVC welded boat to a premium Hypalon hand built boat.

Avon have also launched the most impressive
addition yet to its best selling Seasport Deluxe RIB range. Following a season of success and demand, the Seasport 490 DL,with its first appearance on the water at this year’s Southampton Boat Show, enabled visitors to experience a taste of the 490’s performance.

The success of the Avon Seasport Deluxe RIBs has been quite spectacular and since they were first launched in 2000, they have brought a new standard of sophistication and style to the world of rigid inflatable boating. As the largest model, the addition of the Seasport 490 DL has undoubtedly enhanced the range and complements its three smaller siblings, the 320, 360 and 400.
