I have said it time and again here, Achilles are awesome boats and as ob1 said, way underrated. The fact that they haven't done much in the way of marketing, updating tube size and design, valve placement, etc has made them fade away from mainstream conversation for the most part. They are likely one of the, if not the best made hypalon boats out there. They are the only ones left using double sided hypalon, they are the only hypalon boat that has 1" seams and they are fantastic cosmetically showing that their workmanship is still top notch. They did have some I-beam issues at one point, but what company hasn't. They are also the only hypalon boat I have never in 11 years had in the shop with seam or baffle failure.
I have talked with their main rep several times about a brand resurgence led by a few updates to the design and a little ad campaign and he has replied more than once that they are mainly focused on the dinghy market which is much bigger than the whitewater market. They are certainly worth consideration if you are in the market for a hypalon gear hauler.
