Black dingy??

I am looking for a black dingy, and I haven't had any luck finding one through my local dealers.

Anyone know of a company that does them??

Zodiac used to do some years ago called Serie 1 (was about 1992-shows i'm nearly 30 )

they were black with 2 narrow yellow stripes on the rubbing strakes. Ours was a 134 which was 3.4m long.

Not sure if they are still around. i'll have a search and see if anything appears

Well the Bombard Commando is no dingy but it is a black inflatable. They start at 12 ft I believe. And are available in models c3, c4, and c5.

I have seen the bombards, but they are far too big. I'm just looking for a small one to keep on my rib, only needs to be a 1 man.

thanks for any info

Well my new boat will be totally black, and I wanted a black dingy to match it as I reckon it would look the part, especially with a matching suzi on it.

I know what you mean, but I doubt it'll get used very much anyway.

New Boat

Hows the Prosport build going ? When you hoping to be on the water ??

Maybe try to arrange something mid march weather permitting. Did you go to the Guernsey Boat show at the weekend. The Prosports on display looked pretty nice!!!

It going well, the boat should be out of the mould by the end of the week/monday. Engine is on its way, as are the tubes soon. They have made all of the seats and the console, so looking good.

As long as there aren't any problems I think it should be on course to be launched at the end of next month, I just have to decide on what electronics to go for.

Can't wait to get out in it! Look forward to going out for a spin
