We call it "Stand up Stability"

We call it

Many of our customers choose our True Kit tenders for their incredible stability.  Where does this stability come from?  It come from a combination of large tube size and catamaran design shape.

The reason our catamaran hull shape is so stable is because such a high percentage of the buoyancy is all the way out on the outside of the platform.  Compare this to a v-shaped hull which is how more conventional tenders are designed.  These boats have most of their stability on the centreline of the hull.  Then when you stand on the edge of the tube or floor the boat tips over partly or even all the way!

This makes our True Kit boats very safe to climb into and out of.  When loading people or equipment (outboards!) this is a great feature.
