We are boaties too, so we know that inflatable tenders are the workhorses of the boat world, and that knowledge was key to ensuring that the True Kit Navigator is purpose-designed to be the best lightweight dinghy tender on the market.
Our Navigator has been designed to do the job across all modes. It effortlessly moves people and gear from ship to shore, carries a good load, and you can step in and out of the Navigator with confidence thanks to amazing stability. Lift it onto your swim platform or haul it up the beach and marvel at how light the Navigator is; you and a child can easily carry it beyond the high tide mark. Many of our customers are also pleasantly surprised at the rowing and towing capabilities of the Navigators - we aren’t - we designed them that way!
Imagine a tender that is so light even the kids can carry or wheel it up and down the beach... let us introduce our True Kit Navigator. Through tireless design, testing and refinement our best-selling tender offers a great solution for those tired of the back-breaking effort most tenders involve. The secret is not just in the weight either, the catamaran tunnel-hull design offers 2 unique advantages over everything else - stunning performance and stand-on-the-tube stability. The oversized tubes and generous beam provides the Navigator with the stability and safety that is important when you head out on the water.
What else makes the Navigator so popular? They sit flat on the deck of your yacht (no paintwork damage) or the beach. They produce minimal wake which makes them ideal as a coach/support vessel for water sports like rowing, kayaking, sailing and swimming. With their huge carrying capacity you can really load the Navigators up with all your gear. They row well and tow well too. These folding inflatable boats pack away into a bag that will fit almost anywhere.
More About the Navigator
The Navigator handles all these tasks with ease, and the incredible stability that is immediately apparent the first time you step into the Navigator is central to this performance flexibility. With its catamaran, wide-beam design there is none of that tippy feeling you expect from a small dinghy. The Navigator sits steady on the water, so you can climb in and out with the reassuring confidence you have a secure platform under you. The catamaran design also means the boat will sit flat on your foredeck without the need to build a cradle.
Weight is a big issue when it comes to tender dinghies. Heavy boats are back-breaking work to move up the beach on an incoming tide, or to lift up onto the foredeck or swim platform. Our Navigators are firmly in the lightweight category and can be lifted by one to two people with ease. This lack of excess weight also aids great performance when you are zipping around the bay.
Our Navigators are so rigid when they are set up that many people forget that they can be packed away in minutes and stored in the smallest of spaces. This can be useful when you are heading offshore or wish to store the dinghy safely for the winter months. This also makes our Navigators a popular choice for those road-bound enthusiasts who choose to live their adventures from a caravan or RV. Don’t let the adventure end when you pull up to your favourite beach or lake, unpack your Navigator and keep exploring!
As with all True Kit boats, quality is not compromised. Premium-grade Valmex® fabric is combined with thermo-welded seams for lasting durability. The boats come with aluminium bench seats and clip-in/clip-out oars utilising top quality Raiblaza Ribport mounts. Plus, they are packed with features you will only really appreciate in use; details like the spray-shedding rubbing strip, anti-slip Valmex® floor grip, Shut-off scupper valve and lifting D-rings really come into their own when you’re out in the water.
DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THIS PRODUCT OR ANY OTHERS?
We wanted a tender for our hybrid boat that would run well with an electric outboard. True Kit found me on social media and impressed with innovation and responsive sales support. Our new navigator arrived a week after ordering and was easy to set up and inflate the first time. Looking forward to her taking us ashore.
Received new Navigator and itlooks very nice.
I haven't had time to test it yet. But it's inflated at hanging there nicely in the davits of my sailboat :-) I'll send you som photoes later. Thanks for good service!
Great tender for us and our bikes
We needed a tender with enough stability and room to get us and our electric bikes to and from shore easily. We just tried our True Kit Navigator 300 and it is perfect for this. It performed well with our Torqeedo Traveler 1003.
