We review 10 inflatable dinghies on the market to see which one would make the ultimate tender
This has a slatted floor and only two hull compartments, which gives you little reserve if you get a puncture. But on the plus side it only takes five minutes to inflate.
The slats are close together, held by webbing straps, which form a reasonably firm floor, but it isn’t as solid as Zodiac’s Air Deck.
Otherwise, its features are the same. Good adjustable oars allowing you to feather them when rowing.
With a 4hp maximum rating, we only tested the dinghy with our 2.5hp. It would plane with one crewmember, but not two.
A good weight of 32kg, and small packed dimensions.
At £825 it is priced in the middle of the pack but it has five-year tube and two-year seal warranties.
