“I just wanted to let you know that the boat arrived as promised on Friday. We got it rigged on Friday night/Saturday and put her in the water for her maiden voyage on Saturday afternoon. Michelle and I couldn’t be happier with the boat! She plains quickly, is dry in a nasty cross chop and handles perfectly. The placement of the lifting eyes works perfectly with our existing davit system! Thanks to you and Skip. I am a fan of Brig and Tender Care.“
What Size Yacht Tender is Right For You?Did you know both the Skipper 10’ and Skipper 11’ tenders fit on the davit, crane or swim platforms of many yachts starting at 42-feet? The most commonly used tender size is 10’ for most smaller yachts. The Skipper 10’ fits the smaller yacht size specifications nicely. However, every yacht is different, and Tender Care Boats will need to consult with you to determine if your vessel is the right size.
As you know, tenders are usually fitted in one of three places on a yacht (on the swim platform, deck or in the garage). Depending on which location is best for you, we can ensure the Skipper 10’ or Skipper 11’ are perfectly nestled in the right place to make sure your yachting experience is the best possible.
Based on a Yachting Magazine article titled “Choose the Right Tender,” some yacht owners are misinformed when they are looking to purchase a tender. In an effort to get answers, Yachting Magazine interviewed Tender Care Boats owner Skip Reisert. Here’s what Skip had to say.
“It’s a much more technical sale than people expect,” said Skip Reisert, owner of Tender Care Boats in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (www.tendercareboats.com). “Someone tells a yacht owner he can fit a 13- foot tender on his yacht, but that tender becomes 14 plus feet when the outboard is trimmed to a chock height.”
If you are in the market for a yacht tender, contact Skip Reisert at Tender Care Boats to get some great advice on what tenders will fit your yacht. There are many key components that only an expert will be able to identify and save you lots of time and struggles as you go through the purchase process.
