This is what Zodiac Int'l is building now. Same fabric, probably, as the post-98/99' Avons, which is about when Zodiac bought out the line. Good boats but they dropped the Avon name a couple years ago. As for fabrics, only pre-98/99' Avon boats have the original double-sided hypalon that Avon was known for. Hyside, also, uses double-sided hypalon. The current fabric from Zodiac (USB) is similar to NRS and is good stuff buy IMHO only double-sided hypalon will last as long as the original Avons are (still) lasting.
