"A rugged, unsinkable dinghy
you can row, motor
, sail, and even use as a lifeboat. The Portland Pudgy safety dinghy
even more fun, by making it safer.
Pudgy (7′ 8″, 128 lb., USCG-approved as a rowboat and motorboat for 4 people) is designed and manufactured (in the USA) to be an exceptionally rugged, stable, unsinkable boat
. Its pram shape allows it to fit on the deck
of many cruising sailboats."
is my beloved pudgy. I love this trusty, stable & sturdy little boat.
As a 5'2" female and first time boat owner, I looked far & wide for a dinghy that was super stable, light enough for me to physically handle when stowing, yet big enough for me, the dog & my bicycle or a couple of guests. This little boat met all of my expectations and more. She's bombproof.
This roto-molded boat is unsinkable. The hull
is extremely tough - I regularly hauled it onshore and never had to worry about deep gouges affecting its longevity or durability.
Pudgy is easy to handle. She's lightweight and there's a small wheel
on the center stern which makes maneuvering this boat on land or deck
The Pudgy also tows very, very well and the bridle
I had made is included with purchase
For short distances I would row the pudgy, but I also purchased a longshaft Torqueedo electric motor
(not included) which provided excellent & quiet propulsion
BTW, all of the pics are of me & my friends having a blast with Pudgy. We've set shrimp & crab pots, rowed, sailed and towed each other around from Puget Sound
up into Desolation. This boat has been generously used but is in great condition.
- 4 lifting eyes installed
- Towing bridle
- Qars included
- Sunbrella cover included - designed for davits
but I used it for a deck secured setup
- Bailing pump

Info from the website:
dinghy is ideal to row, motor
, and tow. It tracks perfectly and moves along nicely with a small motor.
The Pudgy is extremely buoyant and has huge carrying capacity, both in the roomy cockpit
and inside the storage
compartments in the double hull
The oars pull apart and stow through the transom hatch
. There's 12 cubic feet of interior storage
within the walls of the hull. The Portland Pudgy (7′ 8″, 128 lb., USCG-approved for 4 people) is designed and manufactured to be an exceptionally rugged, stable, unsinkable boat.
"We put the Torqeedo motor on it yesterday and tooled around in a 5 knot current
and 20knot winds...We were able to cruise
at 5mph with two adults wide open, 4 mph at half throttle. Amazingly, cruising through white caps, we remained dry." Jeff G., Nottingham, NH.
While the Portland Pudgy safety dinghy is a self-rescue boat, with its sail kit, the Pudgy is a fun sailing dinghy!
boats, the Portland Pudgy safety dinghy is a joy to row. Because the Portland Pudgy is so stable, rugged, and tracks so well when rowed or motored, it's also a great boat for fishing
All of the accessories, oars, sail kit (including telescoping mast
and boom), safety equipment
, fishing gear
, lunch, beverages, camera
and tripod, and more, can be stowed inside the double hull, via the five watertight hatches.
