Bainbridge announces a full range of AquaMarine branded inflatable tenders with an extensive range of engine package options at Southampton International Boat Show.
The range of tenders has been designed to meet all boat owners’ needs by providing a full line of inflatable dinghies, tenders and RIBs for getting to and from their vessel.
Starting from the compact 1.85m & 2.4m Slatted Floor designs, ideal for easy stowing and fast set-up, AquaMarine tenders also incorporate popular Air Deck and Aluminium Floor designs, in sizes ranging from 2.1m through to 3.7m.
The top of the line AquaMarine RIBs offer a select range of Italian designed hulls, meticulously manufactured in a low volume, quality-controlled environment in Italy.
The RIBs are offered in 2.7, 3.2 and 3.6m sizes – all designed to cater for owners who want to suspend their tender on davits from the back of their boat.
AquaMarine has incorporated an impressive specification on its tenders as standard fit – not extra cost options – which includes davit lifting points and a comprehensive, quality accessory kit.
In addition to this, the boats also feature multiple air chambers for extra safety in the event of a tube being punctured and larger diameter tubes which inspire greater confidence in operation and give better protection to those aboard.
Another area where the AquaMarine range scores very highly is the use of hot air welding for the seams of the tubes – this is a far more durable and reliable method of building the tubing for an inflatable than the use of glued seams which are in evidence in the majority of tenders.
The benefits of hot air welding are three-fold:
- Permanent Air-Tight Sealing – a uniform welded seam melds the two parts of the tube together
- No degradation of the seam over time – glued seams degrade due to water ingress and air pressure, and temperature changes trying to pull the glue apart
- No yellowing to the seam over time – UV and weathering ages glued seams, resulting in unattractive brown/yellow colouring to the seam from the glue after one or two seasons
The range is further enhanced for the Southampton International Boat Show thanks to a full range of Tender & Outboard Engine packages offering great value for the boat owner.
These added value deals combine a high specification AquaMarine tender with the quality of a Mariner Outboard Engine, and offer as much as £950 OFF the combined engine and boat prices.
All engines are supplied with full pre-delivery inspection with no hidden ‘extras’ and make the whole package a simple and easy way to get on the water.
Commenting on these new offers, Boris Webber, Sales Manager for Bainbridge commented: “We are very pleased to be offering realistically priced, high quality tenders with a full line of engine packages – we are sure these will be very well received at the Boat Show.”
