Highfield TV – Ep. 17 – Split Boat Show

In this Highfield TV episode number 17, Steve takes us behind the scenes of the wet Split Boat Show in Croatia that took place from 26th the 30th of April 2022.

I’ve published before about Highfield RIBs and recently I discovered the the All new Adventure Hardtop Patrol 760 RIB. Definitely worth watching.

I’ve been there before as a journalist and photographer (check out some of my work).
