We have recently changed to a Talamex lightweight inflatable
German made material, only 14 kilos weight, folds up small and can row or take a 5hp motor
We have a 12 metre motorsailer
but the dinghy, like the previous one, is stored upside down on the pilothouse roof. First Mate and I are mid 70's so the new Talamex at only 14 kilos is a big plus. I can pull it up by hand, first mate guides the sticky out bits away from the guard rails and roof edge while I am on the pilothouse roof.
It folds up really small and performs well.
