The Newport Inflatable Dinghy Boat is designed to be used with a motor, and at 10 ft 6 in long, is incredibly stable. This dinghy is big enough to use as a dive boat or 4 person tender boat, yet small enough to use as a quick roll-up for use on the go. The Newport has extra large tubes (18 inches), which makes it very stable and maneuverable at high speeds. With a max 15" short shaft 15hp outboard motor, you can reach 15-20 mph with this set up or a 9.9hp motor that will still give you a smooth ride. This dinghy boat can function great as a simple tender with any smaller motor and even an electric trolling motor. Recent updates also include additional D-Rings for Bimini attachments and other accessories!
All of Newport Vessels inflatable boats have 18 inch high-pressure tubes that allow your ride to be smooth and steady. The Newport model dinghy boat is constructed with triple layered 1,100 denier PVC that is one of the thickest materials out there. White water rafts used this same material so it can withstand the constant bumping, scraping, and rubbing of rocks and other elements. We actually add an extra layer of polyester that makes them virtually indestructible and can be run, dragged, or bumped against the shore, rocks, or sand. The high-pressure inflatable keel allows the inflatable boat to reach maximum performance while banking, turning, and accelerating.
Why Should You Buy A Newport Vessels Inflatable Dinghy Boat?
The Newport 10ft 6in dinghy boat offers the perfect mix of size and portability, making it one of our most popular models. The 18 inch tubes create a stable and comfortable ride at speeds of up to 20 mph. The aluminum framed, wood flooring system makes the Newport dinghy steady while moving across the water or just floating around. Our design It does not take much effort or speed to get on a plane with this 10ft 6in boat.
Along with all the great features this dinghy boat offers, what really sets it apart are materials used to make it. We use only the highest quality materials when designing and constructing our boats. We import high quality Korean PVC, which is significantly more durable than the Chinese made PVC used on most other inflatable boats. State-of-the-art additives provide Korean PVC more protection against the sun’s UV rays than Chinese PVC, which is notorious for breaking down in a matter of months. To provide maximum durability, our boats use high quality German made adhesives, one of the strongest on the market today. Using these adhesives protects our boats from adhesion breakdowns and corrosion damage.
