Dana - new. Packed well, easily assembled, the floors are a bit tricky but not that difficult (just put a small amount of air in). Appears well made but time will tell. In terms of performance I was struck how well it turns - sharply. I am used to the “slip and slip crabbing” of most inflatables. I have a 3hp electric engine so it is not fast, 5.5 knts max but it tracks very well. The oversized tubes make it quite stable (have not had it in extreme wind though, just waves. Pretty dry ride too.
One issue: the foot pump fabric came undone as I was inflating the boat, making the pump useless halfway through. I was able to jury rig an old one I had. That said, I contacted Newport about this issue and they responded immediately and sent another one free-of-charge. Took some time for delivery but they were/are extremely responsive. Their follow-up was excellent also. Very impressive there. On another note they might be a little too responsive with all their marketing e-mails! They clearly have a zealous and good marketing department! But it seems, at this point, they also have a solid product and a great company.
