|AUSTRALIAN MADE GRP DINGHY.
TENDER BOAT CO. Dinghies are professionally hand laid in a dedicated factory situated on Sydney's Northern Beaches.
Light and strong, they are designed to remain dry and stable in most inshore conditions.
As they only weight 34 kilograms they can easily be carried by one person, and are safe to stow on the bow of your boat, mount on Davits or carry on roof racks.
Unlike inflatable dinghies, which can be very wet in rough weather, our dinghie's hard shines, bow shape and high freeboard help minimise 'splashing' effect in a seaway.
Bench width has been increased, which as well as provide extra buoyancy (our dinghies are unsinkable), they provide added structural strength and rigid sides that will not flex when rowing.
The 8' can sit 4 adults or 2 adults and 3 children.
Strong towing point have been through-mounted on the bow for towing or lifting.
The reinforced transom can accommodate up to 5HP engine.
The gunwales are protected with a rubber coaming, which will also insure you do not scratch your boat when bumping against it.
In addition, your dinghy can be fully customised according to your needs.
Optionals extras include:
-Built-in dry box with lockable hatch (perfect for protecting items such as computers, mobile phones, etc, in wet weather)
-Fishing rod holders
-Through bench hole for chain
-Extra strong points for Davits stowage
-Rope handles for carrying
-Dinghy wheels (retractable)
-Choice of internal paint color
