The spacious but portable 8ft 10in Dana inflatable dinghy boat has over-sized 18 inch tubes, making it the perfect inflatable tender, fishing boat, or small runabout dinghy boat. These over-sized tubes make the Dana dinghy boat very stable and maneuverable at high speeds. If you're looking for speed and performance, the ideal motor paring is the 15" short shaft 9.9 Honda outboard, Tohatsu outboard, or Evinrude outboard or any comparable motor. You can reach speeds of 15-20 mph with this set up. The high-pressure inflatable keel allows the inflatable dinghy boat to reach maximum performance while banking, turning, and accelerating. Recent updates also include additional D-Rings for Bimini attachments and other accessories!
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 whitewater 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 Boat?
The 8ft 10in 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 10in 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 10in Dana model inflatable dinghy 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.
