Our 8 1/2′ rowing boat with bow makes for the perfect boat tender, It’s depth and high free board means that it’s both stable and seaworthy, it will take up to 3 adults and has 3 seats as standard, it has a white rubber fender, rail hardwood transom mount and aluminium grip plate to take a small petrol or electric outboard motor.


We can supply good quality aluminium or wooden oars and can add a decorative name on the stern or side of the boat. The stainless steel rubbing strake is a strip of metal running down the main and both side keels, this is sometimes required if the dinghy is to be going aground on hard surfaces, concrete slipways, etc. Dolly wheels are useful if the dinghy is to be moved any great distance on hard ground, it can be carried by two people very easily but wheels may be useful in some circumstances, (this style of wheels are not ideal in soft sand or mud.


Made from robust Lloyds approved GRP fibreglass, the centre and bow seat are airtight making the dinghy unsinkable the stern seat is a bench giving a little more space, included are galvanized steel row locks and stainless steel eyelet. There isn’t anything that can rot or perish on this dinghy.
