A Lightweight Sailboat Tender

The Seascape makes a great 2 person fishing boat, 3 person runabout, or 4 person ship to shore tender boat. The dropstitch air floor allows the boat to easily be rolled up for storage or transport for car trunks, RV storage lockers, and sailboat lockers. Capable of carrying everything from a trolling motor to a 10hp outboard, the boat has plenty of performance potential. It features an inflatable keel, dropstitch air floor, a 180° splash guard & grab rope, rub strakes, grab handles, Bimini attachment D-Rings, towing D-rings, and wear patches underneath the tubes.

The small and portable 9ft Seascape inflatable dinghy boat can be inflated and deflated in less than 10 minutes. The Seascape is perfect to use as a versatile tender boat, yacht tender, fishing boat, or small runabout boat. The Seascape has extra-large tubes (18 inches) that make it very stable and maneuverable at high speeds. The high-pressure air floor is the key feature of the 9ft Seascape and when fully inflated creates a sturdy floor that keeps the boat lightweight. This dinghy is the ideal small tender boat that can handle up to a 15" short shaft 10hp motor and up to 3 people. Recent updates also include additional D-Rings for Bimini attachments and other accessories!

The 9ft Seascape comes with a high-pressure drop stitch air floor that can handle up to 8 psi air pressure. This allows it to become extremely stiff once inflatable and feels just like a hardwood floor but easier to install and much lighter on the water. When deflated this inflatable boat is much more compact and takes up a lot less space to store. The Seascape 9ft model dinghy like all our inflatable boats is constructed with triple-layered 1,100 denier PVC. One of the most durable materials on the market and a much more heavy-duty PVC than many other inflatable boats, the Seascape is virtually indestructible to rocks, sand, and other natural elements you encounter on the water. This lightweight inflatable boat can easily be carried by one person and does not take up much space. This boat is great as a tender and It can be matched easily with any Newport Vessels electric trolling motor.


The 9ft Seascape inflatable boat is the perfect small size dinghy. Its size makes it the perfect boat to be used as a tender or to cruise around a bay or lake. It handles great because of the 18-inch tubes that give it a stable and smooth ride at high speeds. The high-pressure drop stitch air mat floor when inflated to the proper PSI becomes very rigid and firm. The air floor also provides a softer footing which is easy on the back. The 9ft Seascape is easy to inflate and deflate because of the air floor compared to the wood floor models. It also is easy to store when not in use because the air floor can simply be deflated and wrapped up like the boat itself.

Apart from the performance of the 9ft Seascape model inflatable boat the materials and construction used to create is boat is even more remarkable. At Newport Vessels, we only use the highest quality imported PVC which makes for longer-lasting and durable boats. Many other PVC boats use Chinese PVC while the Seascape and all other Newport Vessels inflatables use Korean PVC material. The Korean PVC has UV protectants and flex additives that other cheaper-made PVC does not have. To go along with our materials, our dinghies also use imported German adhesives that are specially made to avoid delamination, chemical corrosion damage, and adhesion breakdowns. Our inflatable boats only use the highest quality PVC materials and adhesives from top-notch suppliers to ensure we have great performance and long-lasting boats.

How do I assemble my inflatable boat?

Assembly of your Newport Vessels inflatable boat will take about 15-20 minutes (especially the first time). Please view the detailed Owner's Manual for Wood Floor Inflatable Boat and Owner's Manual for Air Floor Inflatable Boat for the best most clear step by step directions. You can also view the brief assembly instruction video below of how to assemble your inflatable boat.

Hardwood floor

Air floor

Assembly of your Newport Vessels inflatable boat will take about 15-20 minutes (especially the first time). Please view the above video and the below steps to aid in the assembly and installation of the aluminum framed wooden floor boards. This part of the process will take about 5 minutes by using the following steps.

STEP A: Properly place Newport Vessels inflatable boat floor boards inside the boat in the correct order and attach the inflatable boat floor boards at the joint locations. Watch video above for proper technique & floorboard alignment instructions.

STEP B: Conjoin each individual floor together by inserting each floor boat (in the correct order) into the appropriate bracket. Once again, watch the above video for proper technique & inflatable boat floor board alignment instructions.

STEP C: Now that the inflatable boat floor board panels are properly and even placed within the boat (and the joints are properly connected) grab all the stringers and prepare for the aluminum stringer insertion. The longer side of the stinger is to be placed against the floor of the inflatable boat (leaving the more narrow/thin portion of the stringer facing upward. The motion to set the stingers in place is a rolling motion (not a sliding motion). The stingers are designed to roll into place and to secure snugly and not move. Watch video above for proper Newport Vessels inflatable boat stringer installation.

STEP D: Repeat the above steps for each individual aluminum stringer so that each joint of the wood panel floors are properly secured in place. The aluminum framed wood panel flooring provides an extremely rigid and secure flooring system for your boat. Wood flooring is recommended for multi passenger uses, dogs, standing, fishing, and all versatile inflatable boating applications. Watch the video above for proper technique & floor board alignment instructions.

My new Seascape arrived within 1 week of ordering, including accessory kit. All looks good and works well after a couple of sea trials with my electric outboard. Love the launch wheels, although I eliminated the thick rubber pad, as that seems to have no purpose whatsoever. My only complaint is the location of the fill port for the forward section - it is located near the bottom of the tube such that the only way to attach the pump to it is to completely deflate the air floor. Not sure if this is a design flaw, or a manufacturing flaw. If it were located the same as the fill ports for the side sections, all would be good. Please consider.
