“I was looking for an inflatable tender repair shop and I went to a local dealer. I was disappointed at their poor service and rates. They just did not want to work with me. I googled and found Tender Care Boats on US 1. South Federal Hwy. Ft Lauderdale.
After dealing with the repair manager, Rudy, I found him very reasonable and fair with the pricing, including pickup and delivery service for my 11' AB dinghy. The hull was cleaned and bottom painted. A 100 hour engine service was done on the 25HP Honda, and a few leaks repaired on the tubes. We had a good relationship and I was a very satisfied customer!
Let's not forget the wonderful service of the front desk staff, Annerys & Carol. They treat you like family. I will highly recommend this company!
Thank You. it's been a pleasure.

Why are Yacht tenders so popular and what are the benefits of ownership?Tender Care Boats has been servicing the marine industry for over 35 years. WE have seen and experienced the rigid inflatable industry evolve since its inception. Many boats models and segments have been created, but there isn't another type of boat out there with as many uses than a rigid inflatable.
Rigid inflatable boats are most known for being versatile boats with several types of uses. Recreational, commercial, military, life boats, safety and rescue. A rigid inflatable is also good for ferrying passengers, wakeboarding, tubing, diving, snorkeling, and much more than just being a yacht tender on a much larger vessel. Here in Fort Lauderdale, we mostly see them as a tender on yachts or mega yachts.
Rigid inflatables have a reputation for cutting through the water easily because the shape of the hull makes it much better in rough water conditions to allow for a smoother, softer ride, even in the worst of conditions. If you are looking for a boat that provides stability in nearly all situations, this is the type of boat you want. And if you have kids, it is a very safe boat, and they are virtually unsinkable.
Here are 11 other benefits of rigid inflatable boats:
- It does not capsize easily
- The rigid construction makes it stable even at high speeds
- They remain buoyant even when they have taken on water
- Because the tubes are compartmentalized from each other, there is little danger of it sinking in the event that one tube section malfunctions
- Can be used in all types of water from calm lakes to rough seas
- It can be easily maneuvered, even by inexperienced drivers
- Resistant to low-impact collisions because of the PVC or Hypalon tubes surrounding the hull
- Lightweight and easy to trailer
- Fuel efficient
