After eight years of use as a tender
for my catamaran
during two circumnavigations I had to buy a new tender
and bought a Highfield with Aluminium double hull
, length 2.9m at Island Waterworld in St. Marteen. Reason: The Valiant was in need of costly repair after some locals used their Machetes when trying to burglar my cat w/o succes. Reason for Highfield: this was lighter than my previous tender and was sold for a good price
After one year of use I have to say that that Valiant was much more comfortable than the Highfield as this one is (to say so) very nervous in its mouvements it also rides the strongly battering.
The Highfield is far away from the behavior of the Valiant (about the same price
in Europe) and the Carib, but the latter one is much more expensive and needs a stronger motor
I never used a WM Tender but have seen some under way.
