Product Description

The small and portable 8ft 10inch inflatable dinghy boat is perfect to use as a versatile tender boat, fishing boat, or small run about boat.  The Dana dinghy boat has extremely large tubes (18inches) which makes it very stable and maneuverable at high speeds.  If you're looking for speed and performance, the ideal motor paring is the 9.9 Honda outboard, Tohatsu outboard, or Evinrude outboard or any comparable motor.  You can reach speeds of 25+ mph with this set up.  The extremely high-pressure inflatable keel allows the inflatable dinghy boat to reach maximum performance while banking, turning, and accelerating. 

Dana Inflatable Dinghy Boat Comes With:
  • Dana 8ft 10inch Inflatable Boat
  • Aluminum Framed Marine Wood flooring Set
  • Included Accessories: Bench Seat, Set of Oars, Foot Pump, Repair Kit, & Carrying Bag
  • DMV Registration Paperwork

Newport Vessels inflatable dinghy boats are constructed with triple layered 1,100 denier PVC.  What's this mean?  It means we use the exact same materials used in professional White Water rafts.  In fact we use an extra layer of polyester in our boats to give the material more flexibility for when folding up and storing away.  Since our boats are made with the same materials, same construction methods, and techniques, our dinghy boats are just as indestructible as white water rafts.  Our dinghy boats are made to be dragged up on shore, run into docks, and to keep up with the wear and tear of boating.

Why Should You Buy A Newport Vessels Inflatable Dinghy Boat?

The 8ft 10inch Dana model inflatable sport tender is the ideal mix between portability and performance.  The huge 18 inch tubes make this dinghy boat one of the most stable inflatable tender boats on the market; both during times of high speed and while floating still.  The wide footprint of the 8ft 10inch Dana makes for a solid foundation for easily boarding the boat as well as loading the boat. This same very solid foundation makes for an extremely low center of gravity and stable ride platform during times of high speed and turning.   

Aside from the incredible performance of the 8ft 10inch Dana model inflatable tender boat, the materials used for the construction of the boat are even more impressive.  Newport Vessels only utilizes the highest quality imported Korean PVC which makes for long-term dependability and product performance. Be extremely cautious of cheap low-end Chinese PVC material that is constructed without flex additives and UV protectants.  These materials are notorious for becoming brittle quickly and breaking down within only months of use. Newport Vessels only uses the highest quality imported German adhesives that are specially formulated to avoid delamination, adhesion breakdowns, and chemical corrosion damage.  If brands aren't talking about their high quality German adhesives, they're not using them!  Newport Vessels uses only the highest quality PVC materials and adhesives from world class suppliers, to ensure a high quality product that customers of all types will love. 

Newport Vessels boasts a meticulous manufacturing process that includes quality control pressure tests, water leak tests, UV tests, and stretch tests throughout the manufacturing process. Designing and manufacturing boats since 2008, has provided the Newport Vessels design team with incredible inflatable boat design and manufacturing technical experiences that are constantly evolving to create better and better inflatable sport boat products.

Newport Vessels only utilizes the highest quality materials.  Selecting the best quality materials is imperative in creating a high quality boat that will last. 


Dana Boat Design & Drag Simulation:

The design work of the Newport Vessels 8ft 10inch Dana inflatable boat has gone through rigorous computer model testing and simulations.  It's this extreme level of design testing and modeling that allows Newport Vessels to design both high-performance and eye catching inflatable boat products that are sure to be loved by all types of boating enthusiasts.

  1. Great little boat for fishing on lakes. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2017

    Just don't let kids inflate it in front room . Have not gotten it to water yet. But kids and dogs love it. Remember to get life vests. Right now the water temperature is Oh my that's COLD even dogs need a vest right now. Cold is cold. Great little craft to put in your trunk. Have fun and. please Be. Safe.

  2. best value and build 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Sep 2016

    Looked at many - this is best. well manufactured in higher grade PVC than comps. keeps getting smarter design each year (drain plug, centering logo patch to accommodate davits, seat quality, style, etc.) much better build and value than WM similar at higher price. tracks well with inflatable keel. but this boat is heavy for length likely due to quality materials. pumps up easily in 10 min. floor boards easy install when deflated but heavy add on.

  3. Nice boat - issues with registration 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jun 2016

    The boat is exactly what I expected, however I have not been able to try it yet because of a small problem with the registration documents. Included in the boat is an envelope that includes a bill of sale. The sale price shown is the price of the boat including tax, but doesn't separate these out. DMV wants to charge me tax again to register it. Fortunately I have the email that does itemize the boat price and the taxes paid. This process would be a lot simpler if the bill of sale separated these out.

  4. Excellent quality!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2014

    My Dana is over 2 years old, never loses air, very well built, best bargain among inflatables! Very happy!

  5. Heavy Duty Inflatable Yacht Tenders 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Oct 2013

    These inflatable yacht tenders are great! Much sturdier than I anticipated. It's a little on the heavy side, honestly! It carries plenty of people, though, and is a great little tender. If you need to get from point A to point B on a budget, this is a great way to go.
