Re: Tender Amel 54
Nice to hear from you. We’re in the same “boat”. Have not been at the boat since October 2019 and hopeful that 2021 season will not be affected by COVID.
Which model of the offshore cruising tender did you end up with and what do you feel are the advantages over the inflatable ones?

Hi Aty & Mohammad,
Hope you guys are doing well with this COVID situation – I am not sure when I can get back to the boat in AUSTRALIA but I don’t think it will be before Q2 2021.
Although you asked about the HIGHFIELD just wanted to share since I know you appreciate (very) high quality stuff. 😊
I had 5 tenders in 18 months – 2 of them were HIGHFIELDS; I will save you the story.
Best dinghy, bar none, is the Offshore Cruising Tenders. They are located in NZ and only custom build. Expensive but, in my opinion, well worth the extra $$$$$
Best Regards Teun

We are looking for a new tender, as our existing 12 year old Zodiac Classic foldable with aluminum floor planks that came with our Amel, is starting to have some of the glue joints fail. It has been a great stable ride that planes with a 20HP with 4 people. We have been considering the Highfield line and will not be onboard prior to ordering, Therefore, we would appreciate comments on the following issues:
Thanks in advance for all input.
