The Tender 8.5 may be the smallest and lightest of the fleet but it is not light on features or value. The dinghy was designed to tow easily or to be stowed on deck, davits, or with snap davits on your swim platform. The Tender line is truly is a replacement for inflatable boats and is U.S. Coast Guard Certified.

The dinghy comes standard with port and starboard stainless steel safety handles, three lifting rings, and bow eye. A removable, floating rowing seat as well as a large forward storage locker add to the features of the boat. The rub rail is non-marring. All deck surfaces are molded-in, non-skid surfaces. Positive closed cell foam cell floatation in the upper sections of the tubes keep the boat floating upright even if completely filled with water. The tube size has been increased which improves stability.

The Tender also features newly designed, molded-in steps in the aft sections of the tubes. This reduces drag and allows the yachtsman to easily plane with a smaller motor. The large tube diameter allows this boat to achieve incredible stability. The dinghy also comes with a 5-year limited warranty from the manufacturer.
