Yacht Tenders / Dinghies
You may call them tenders, yacht tenders, dinghies, launches or dinks but by any name Duroboats make excellent service boats for larger vessels.
A Duroboat will look very smart at on the deck or transom of your yacht. When room is scarce a Duroboat is an easy tow along for sail or powerboats.

We have had good reports of performance in our 10T with electric trolling motors and recently tested a 10T with a Torqeedo 801 This is a 2HP equivalent motor that utilizes a self contained lithium battery head. The whole unit fits in a gym bag size travel case. Our 10T made 5.3MPH with this motor and was fun to operate. Searching Google video for Duroboat will show you the performance.
Michele, Dylan and Enza (the dog) enjoy summer fun at Miles Inlet along central coast of British Columbia. When the big boat is at anchor the Duroboat is great for getting to the rocky beaches and shoreline as well as exploring the islands and coves. Dylan loves to go fast in "Little Boat".

Sam Craft's Jolly Ole Shakey Marina, Moss Point, Mississippi.
Sam is an avid sailor who uses his 72 ft schooner "Jolly Fisherman" in battle re-creations. Don't mess with Sam he keeps a cannon on Deck.
Sam bought a whole bunch of Duroboats to replace "Dinks" lost in the Hurricane
When dink delivery day came the Pascagoula River had again flooded Sam's place. The Duro Dinks were pushed off the trailer and bobbed happily around until the river receded. Jolly Ole Shakey Marina will soon sport a fancy new eatery, built on stilts to keep the customers feet dry. Take a look at Sam's web site http://www.jollyfisherman.net
