Hypalon Rollup Dinghy - Only 8 Mo Old $1199

These Apex dinghies list for $2400 new; we bought ours late November 2012 (have receipts). Reliable, light, compact, and made to hold up in the sun (though ours is now in storage, out of the light). This Apex A-24 is 8', weighs only 56 lbs., can carry up to 860 lbs and takes up to a 6 hp motor. In good shape (see attached images). Professionally installed davit lift points.

As long-term cruisers, we just carry too much stuff to get by with less than 10.'
We're replacing the Apex with a 10' rib and keeping the 5 hp 2-stroke we used with it for our next dinghy.

We're in Jacksonville FL. Price does not include shipping; we're hoping we're nearby or on someone's way....

Good morning

Do you still have this boat?

Could you possibly have meant A-8 in your description. The Apex A-24 is auch larger boat.

Thanks

This is the boat I have
Inflatable Roll up A-24

It is referred to as an A-8 by Apex


Are you interested?

Thank you.

Yes I am.

One other question - forgive my lack of knowledge on this boat but I can't figure this out from the Apex website. Is the boat bottom inflatable and then the roll up wood slats fit on top of that inflated bottom?

Thanks

Steve,
The wood slats form the inside floor of the dinghy. There's also a keel shape formed toward the front of the bottom, underneath, to help the boat track. THe boat is so light even with the motor attached it's easy to pick up and thus avoid dragging it over rough surfaces.
