Our History

Since 1959, Avon Inflatables Limited has produced over 200,000 inflatables and rigid inflatable boats (RIB). Recognised as a pioneer and a world leader, Avon has an enviable reputation for design, performance and exceptional
product quality.

Created in Bradford on Avon, Avon Inflatables moved to its current location in Dafen near the town of Llanelli, South Wales, UK in the early 1960’s. The company’s growth has been astounding, with an innovative and ever growing product range and a brand name that is recognised throughout the world.

Avon products are available globally from an international network of dealers, distributors and agents and are serviced by a comprehensive network of locally convenient service stations, providing expert after sales support for customers.

Nearly 60 years of producing first-class hand-built products have led to Avon being recognised as ‘the’ product to own in both the inflatable boating and life saving industry.

Our Values

Each product boasts unrivalled design, careful research and rigorous sea trials to guarantee exceptional on water performance and life saving capabilities.

The smallest detail is considered, from the hull design to carrying capacity, ensuring outstanding handling, buoyancy and seaworthiness.

As testament to the product quality, Avon’s Liferaft range has had more successful rescues than any other brand, including the longest Liferaft survival in history- an impressive 117 days.

Why choose Avon?

Avon has been setting the standard for quality, style and innovation for generations – the Roll Away is a prime example, and as you’re about to see, we’re still leading the way and leaving everything in our wake.

With their light weight and advanced hull designs, you can expect high performance from your Avon even with medium powered engines, providing major energy and cost savings. The seaworthiness of these inflatables is unparalleled.

With well tested, carefully designed hull shapes, raised bows, outstanding buoyancy and remarkable stability, they can withstand much rougher conditions than rigid craft of comparable size.
