With yachts carrying so many toys aboard these days, a compact but powerful and reliable tender is a must. If you’re looking for something matching this description, you might want to consider Rendova’s line of boats. The smallest of the family is the XT 11, a RIB tender specifically designed for island hopping. A deep-V hull made of carbon fiber, Kevlar and vacuum-infused E-glass means this boat can handle choppy seas. Rendova’s exclusive beach door makes visiting the shore a breeze and a swim ladder for an easier return to the boat after a day in the waves. The XT 11 includes comfortable seating for four, a center-console helm with adjustable controls, sound system, hidden storage and a built-in system to keep the battery charged at all times, even if you’re away from the boat for months at a time.
