Hello Mohammed & Any,
We’ve seen and rode in an OCT tender. A very sound dinghy with many desirable features sailors appreciate.
We did a long comparative ride in varying sea state conditions; both had identical Yamaha 15 HP Enduro 2 stroke engines. Our AB was faster if loaded with 2 adults but due to the high deadrise bottom, she did not plane with 4 people aboard.
The OCT is a bit slower but will plane with 4 due to its lesser hull deadrise. However, the AB could maintain a higher speed in rougher conditions. The OCT rode well but had to slow down a bit.
Undoubtedly, the OCT was far dryer ride. I have no anything with these people. https://octenders.co.nz/
Hope this helps.
