Twin Vee 10 Tender
Twin Vee is known for its fleet of rugged, utilitarian power cats. But the company actually got its start building a 10-foot dinghy. The boat is still popular - and available - today. The Twin Vee 10 Tender has a fiberglass-and-foam catamaran hull that's prized for its carrying capacity and stability. It can handle as many as four people, or around 800 pounds, yet the vessel weighs only 185 pounds. The dinghy is a little more than 10 feet long, with an ample beam of around 5 feet, making it a steady platform at speed or at the dock. Self-bailing under way, the dinghy is powered by a single outboard up to 18 hp. For those seeking a larger dinghy or tender, Twin Vee also offers 14- and 17-foot models, available with optional consoles.
