For years, customers have been asking us for a lightweight 8’ boat that has good rowing qualities, sails like a champ, motors 8 knots with a 2 h.p. outboard, and safely carries 3 people and a dog. In addition, they wanted it to look like a boat, not a barge. That is a lot to ask of a very small boat, but we have the answer.

The Nisqually tender does all of the above. Its heritage comes from the lines of our 12’ Point Defiance, and it offers remarkable versatility.
