Tender Type

If you had to describe the benefits for a liveaboard for 6 pax - say ~

RIB
Aluminium Dinghy + Boat Collar
Inflatable Cat (TakaCat)
OC Tender / Other hard tender - About 3.2-3.5M

Any comments from people who have tried more than one?

Thanks
Paul

Re: Tender Type

They all present their own pros and cons for sure.

RIBS seem very popular on other cruisers boats lately, I imagine for weight. I have no experience with them.

We had an achilles hypalon inflatable for awhile, but age caught up with it and it wasn’t worth patching anymore. Great inflatable, but for what we use our dinghy specifically, an inflatable does not suit us.

We researched into a Stryker, which was apperently a Canadian brand. After inspecting them In the showroom, we passed on them. Chinese made.

We now carry a 8.5 fibreglass rigid tender and couldn’t be any happier. Simuliar to the walker bay boats which are pretty neat on their own. Not sure who the builder is as we bought is used for $400 cad.

Re: Tender Type

OC probably our next. Friends have one. Lust at first sight.

Presently, we have a Caribe 9.5. It’s wet and heavy. Good service, no problems. Hard to plane with two and groceries.

Re: Tender Type

If I was doing it again the oc would be for me . Light and does not need a big engine. As for the six passengers you would need a very big dingy to keep everyone dry 12 feet perhaps .

Re: Tender Type

The 3.30m OC Tender would be at it's limit with 6 people and their belongings. It's payload is only 373kg. The 3.5m version can carry an extra 100kg, but both recommend a 15hp engine, which isn't going to be quick with 6 people.
