“A big thank you for delivering us our new and amazing 10' Skipper.  Needless to say, your Skipper is the talk of our marina. Our marina is full of a ton of moorings, therefore there are a lot of tenders that live on the tender dock here in South Dartmouth MA. I can't begin to tell you how proud I/we feel as we cruise around the waterways, we always notice boaters of all kinds checking our Skipper Tender. Not only is our Skipper 10 beautifully styled, extremely well equipped, super comfortable, fast and well tested prior to delivery. Our Skipper was delivered spotlessly and a whole ton more Denna and I are extremely happy with your/our new tender.

Thank you again for all your attention to detail and for delivering us a beautiful tender. We absolutely love it and love how you exactly matched our Skipper canvas cover to our boat canvas, one more added touch that truly makes a really nice difference.  

Sincerely and grateful,
Happy Skipper 10' Customers - Cambridge, MA “

What you need to know before buying a yacht tender

The first topic to address is the fact that if you are going to be installing a tender on your vessel, make sure you spec out the proper weight tender and the fit with a reputable dealer prior to the tender purchase. Many buyers over tender their vessel and find that they have made a very expensive mistake. Fitting a tender on a yacht is both an emotional and technical purchase.
 
The first thing I tell customers that walk into my dealership is look around but "don't fall in love with a tender" until I look at your big boat, to check for the optimum fit. Once you have done this you can then proceed with your search to find out what is available in your particular area or on the Internet. We specialize in shipping tenders world wide to our customers, to your door or marina. If you are able to consider a console tender, most console tenders are manufactured with hypalon material for the tube set, this is a very durable long lasting fabric which will last a long time if cared for properly. The next important item to consider is seating capacity and your family size, as well as the comfort of the seating in the tender. Tender storage is another feature that is important, due to the small size of these boats, make sure you have ample amounts of storage to store all of your belongings. Once you have decided on the tender that best fits your needs, then you need to consider what options that don't come standard on the tender would you like to have ex: cover, bimini top, VHF, GPS, stereo, deck lights, underwater lights, trailer, chocks, etc.
 
In closing make sure you are in good hands with the dealer that you choose, remember you are not only buying a tender you are buying the dealer as well both pre-purchase and post sale. If you have questions on what fits your vessel, go to our website and reach out to us we can assist you with that.
 
Good Luck!
