We are currently waiting for our Bénéteau 51.1 to be delivered, which should be around April next year. We've ordered this boat
in the Med during summer, and Caribbean
But with every good charter boat
comes a decent dinghy
Because we want to offer something exclusive, we're thinking about getting a powerful dinghy
so we're able to do some wakeboarding with guests.
We've been looking into 2 options.
-Highfield 340 with console + 30hp outboard
-Foldable F-Rib 375 without console + 25hp outboard
The F rib
is a foldable boat that allows us to store it away during crossings/long trips, but has its downsides. (no console, doesn't look as good, can't be used as storage
So the question is this: do you want a 3m40 tender
on your foredeck during crossings? Storing the outboard in one of the aft lockers is no problem so this will not be on deck
Bear in mind that we'll be spending 90+% of our time in calm waters and protected bays.
or experience is welcome! Am I missing something?
