Looking for a 2.00 meter RIB tender for my RIB

Hi there,

My name is Nick and I am situated in Greece. I own a 8.55 RIB with twin Yams F150. Here in Greece our boats are mostly used for leisure, sun bathing, and generally we leave in the morning and spend almost all day on the boat or visiting several beaches depending on the weather. I am a happy guy with my RIB, but I realy need a tender, since I have two young kids which cannot stay safely on the boat and lately we (my wife and I ) realised that the only way to go when we have our kids along with us, is to stay on the beach.

So we need a RIB tender maximum 2 meter (210 actualy) to leave the roads and get back safely on board after with the kids.

Any proposals will be highly appreciated...

Thanks

Nick.

PS. A few pics of my boat -->

Beautiful boat.

At 2m, maybe a SIB is better. That way you can roll it up when not in use and you can use an electric pump from your rib batteries.

Thanks

Thanks,

Actualy I have already prepared (not in the pics above) a patent where the tender can sit sideways on my stern, something like this weaver-snap-davits . The boat is in the inox factory since Monday, and I am receiving it today.

So my idea is to put a RIB inflated on my stern sideways, not unrolled, for two reasons. One for the ease of use and two because a 2 meter RIB can hold up to 3+1 persons, where as a 2 meter SIB can hold only 2+1 persons.

Thanks again,

Nick

Zodiac Cadet is the most obvious to my mind. Possibly Quicksilver and Avon? I can't think of any others.
