Newport Vessels most popular inflatable dinghy boat model, the “Newport”. This 10.5ft inflatable sport boat is the ultimate boat for versatile users who have changing needs. 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 in), which makes it very stable and maneuverable at high speeds. With a max 15hp outboard motor, you can reach 20 mph with this set up or a 9.9hp motor that will still give you a smooth ride. This boat can function great as a simple tender with any smaller motor and even an electric trolling motor.
Inflatable Dinghy Boat Comes With:
Newport 10ft 6in Inflatable Boat
Aluminum Framed Marine Wood Floor Set
Included Accessories: Bench Seat, Set of Oars, Foot Pump, Repair Kit, & Carrying Bag

All of Newport Vessels inflatable boats have 18inch high-pressure tubes that allow your ride to be smooth and steady. The Newport model 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.

Along with all the great features this boat offers, what really sets it apart are materials used to make this inflatable boat. 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.
Newport Vessels detailed design and manufacturing process includes quality control tests, water leak tests, UV tests, and stretch tests.

Overall this boat is a good value. It's a bit heavy for it's size.
The seat in the aft position is too far aft for use with a tiller. The handle will keep hitting you in the side when you try to turn. Looks like they placed it so far aft to give you the option for the second seat. I bought the extra second seat but a single seat position a little further forward might work better.
The company's customer service is excellent! I called them before I bought the boat to talk about which model to buy, and after to discuss the seat.
Overall, I recommend this boat and brand.
Exactly what it said it was - Lively, bouyant, and clever. Delivered quickly,

Newport Vessels delivered exactly what they described - an inexpensive, well-designed, seemingly well-built roll-up inflatable. The package arrived FAST and included everything it was supposed to (and everything we needed to get in the water, except the engine, gas tank, safety gear, and state registration). The registration documents were complete and accurate and the boat was everything it was promised to be - a sturdy, lightweight, buoyant, and cleverly-packaged tender that is agile enough to be fun on calm water. After a week, my impression is that it is well-constructed, but we'll see.
I bought this is a boat for my kids (12 and 14) to learn on, for use in a large (17x3 mile) lake. During calm mornings, the boat was fast, nimble, and fun with a 10hp motor, quick to plane and extremely stable with 2 passengers. It would not easily plane with 550lbs / 3 passengers, but with two adults it planes all day. My wife and I took it 2-3 miles across the lake in breezy, choppy conditions as a test and while it wasn't a whole lot of fun, the boat was utterly unflappable. It exhibited no leaks or other physical failures during its first week.
It assembled very easily, except for the stringers (side rails), and while deflating and rolling it up neatly took a bit longer, it wasn't too bad. It's a handsome boat and the accessories and components like the pump, ropes, valves, and handles seem clever and well-built. The oars are a little flimsy but they are extremely light; hopefully they will hold up OK. The floorboards do not seem very tough - they were scratched fairly easily by an anchor - and they could be a tiny bit thicker. I will look into giving them a coat of marine polyurethane or something similar.
All in all I am very impressed for the price. It might not give off that aura of indestructibility that a new Achilles or Zodiac does, but it's no toy - it is obviously an actual boat that was thoughtfully engineered and made from nice materials. I would advise potential buyers to definitely consider this product as a serious contender when evaluating 10-foot wood-floor roll-ups.

Floor is a bit challenging but once together nice solid boat.
Love this Inflatable Craft
Posted by Ron West on 28th Aug 2015
Ive used this boat (Newort) all summer both trailerd and out of bag, and have had zero problems. Very sturdy for two recently retired grandparents. I have both wood floor and inflatable but use the inflatable a lot more because its easy and lighter.
Have a 6hp Tohatsu 4 cycle that moves it very well. I also bought the salt water 62lb electric motor and its great too.
If I was starting all over again in searching for a inflatable craft Id purchase it again.
Believe me if your doing due diligence on purchasing an inflatable thats priced very well, stop the effort and order one of these. You won't regret it!
Great Heavy Duty Inflatable Boat

Really happy with the quality of this boat for the price! We use it for fishing and beat it up--it's held up like a champ. Easy to inflate and store, just fits in the back of the truck or on a shelf in the garage. Great deal on an inflatable boat.
