Highfields Sport vs Patrol

Hi Yall!

I am looking to purchase either the 460 Sport or Patrol, and I was hoping someone could shed some light on the differences.

How does the Hypalon compare?
How does hull construction compare?
What are the other big differences?

Thanks in advanced!

Hi - I know that the hull is the same on the two, its the configuration on top that changes.

Apart from that I'm not aware of any real differences, but hopefully some one with the Sport (mine's a Patrol) will be along to fill the gaps.

Hull is the same its just the layout on top that differs.
I previously had a 5m patrol and currently have a Sport 700, great hull and build quality and would happily have another Highfield tomorrow.

Yeah, that's what I am thinking. Price-wise the Patrol is only 500 more expensive, so I can't imagine it's anything more than a different deck layout.

Thanks
