Luxury Rib Tender Spacious for Four, Yet Only 10

Too many small inflatable tenders today are purely utilitarian in design, lacking in any kind of style or panache. And RIBs are often too large and difficult to stow to be practical on many yachts. Enter the Argos Nautic 305 Yachting. It's a luxurious, center console rigid inflatable boat that's a mere 10' in length with only a 5.7' beam.

The 305 model weighs only 750 lbs., so it's effortlessly brought up onto davits or a deck. And because of its small size, it slides easily into most mid-sized yacht garages. Due to its straked, fiberglass hull and Orca Hypalon inflatable tubes, it also tows smoothly with little resistance.

The 305's small size doesn't mean it's cramped, however. It was designed to maximize storage and legroom. Spacious, it comfortably carries four passengers. Their supplies and belongings are neatly stowed in a myriad of dry and secure on board locations.
