Mantus Dinghy

For cruisers in the Pacific Northwest, finding a dinghy that can be dragged up on rocky, barnacle laden beaches without being damaged has long been a difficult task. Now, coming in 2024, Mantus Marine is set to launch their rotomolded rigid dinghy, which offers the stability and convenience of a rigid inflatable but provides a durable, efficient, and low maintenance hull. Model 104 is 190 lbs, 10.4 feet long, and 5.7 feet wide, providing 30% more interior space to a comparable rigid inflatable and copious amounts of storage space. Thick foam bumpers along the sides of the dinghy create a cushion when coming alongside a boat or dock. The boat is easy to get on plane and can take up to a 15 hp long or short shaft outboard of your choice. Rowing from the middle seat is fun and easy and the standard package includes oars, seats, and convenient storage bags. Wheels are optional.

Torqeedo Travel Family

Torqeedo has taken their original “Travel” electric outboard to the next level. The new Travel Family is a next generation lineup that serves an even broader range of boating applications. The Travel Family’s modular design starts with four packages to choose from: the Adventure Package pairs an 1,100 W Travel and a 1,080 Wh battery with an innovative mounting and steering system that gets kayak anglers quickly and stealthily to their secret spots. The Essential Package is the original Travel, redefined. It pairs an ultra-efficient 1,100 W outboard motor with a 1,080 Wh battery. The Range Package substitutes a higher-capacity battery (1,425 Wh) for when you want to spend all day on the water. And the Power Package easily propels sailboats, larger boats, boats on coastal waters, or vessels that routinely experience windy, wavy conditions with its heavy-duty 1,600 W direct-drive motor and 1,425 Wh battery. Once the package is selected, a multitude of charging, propeller, and accessory options allow boaters to build their perfect electric Travel companion.
