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.

How do I assemble my inflatable boat?

Assembly of your Newport Vessels inflatable boat will take about 15-20 minutes (especially the first time). Please view the detailed Owner's Manual for Wood Floor Inflatable Boat and Owner's Manual for Air Floor Inflatable Boat for the best most clear step by step directions. You can also view the brief assembly instruction video below of how to assemble your inflatable boat.

Hardwood floor

Air floor

Assembly of your Newport Vessels inflatable boat will take about 15-20 minutes (especially the first time). Please view the above video and the below steps to aid in the assembly and installation of the aluminum framed wooden floor boards. This part of the process will take about 5 minutes by using the following steps.

STEP A: Properly place Newport Vessels inflatable boat floor boards inside the boat in the correct order and attach the inflatable boat floor boards at the joint locations. Watch video above for proper technique & floorboard alignment instructions.

STEP B: Conjoin each individual floor together by inserting each floor boat (in the correct order) into the appropriate bracket. Once again, watch the above video for proper technique & inflatable boat floor board alignment instructions.

STEP C: Now that the inflatable boat floor board panels are properly and even placed within the boat (and the joints are properly connected) grab all the stringers and prepare for the aluminum stringer insertion. The longer side of the stinger is to be placed against the floor of the inflatable boat (leaving the more narrow/thin portion of the stringer facing upward. The motion to set the stingers in place is a rolling motion (not a sliding motion). The stingers are designed to roll into place and to secure snugly and not move. Watch video above for proper Newport Vessels inflatable boat stringer installation.

STEP D: Repeat the above steps for each individual aluminum stringer so that each joint of the wood panel floors are properly secured in place. The aluminum framed wood panel flooring provides an extremely rigid and secure flooring system for your boat. Wood flooring is recommended for multi passenger uses, dogs, standing, fishing, and all versatile inflatable boating applications. Watch the video above for proper technique & floor board alignment instructions.

Great service and quality

Placed my order directly with Newport and was helped by Jameson. We got the boat in less than 5 days and everything worked great. One tip is to very very lightly lube the bottom of the stringers with olive oil with a paper towel so they install easier so the rubber allows it to slide in.

Excellent Customer Service from Sales to Support

I love my dinghy. Took it out to the bay every other weekend. Boat is really stable. I bought the one for 5 people, but personally, 4 people are perfect. One minor issue: breaker was dead in the middle of the bay on the first day I took it out. I have to by pass the breaker for the rest of the day. Called support and received replacement one in couple of days. Customer service from sale and support is above and beyond my expectation. I would recommend to give Newport Vessels a chance to show their knowledges and skills.

Perfect for fishing and leisure crusing

The boat is perfect size for all my gear and a passenger to go fishing or just have a leisure day on the water. Steers really nice and handles wind and chop nicely. Stays really white!!
