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.  

The Navigator is equally happy being rowed or powered by a small outboard.  While a firm favourite for use as a tender, the Navigator is also ideal as a motorhome accessory or a fishing or dive boat.  Wheels can be fitted to the transom to make it effortless to go from motorhome to 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.

Every Navigator comes with oars that lock into the standard fitted Railblaza RibPorts.  When the oars aren't in use they can be securely stowed away on the inside of the tubes and rod holders can be fitted to the ports.  These RibPorts are low profile and unobtrusive and not uncomfortable to sit on like most tenders.  The aluminium seats lock in to the tubes and are ideal for securing padded seat bags and under-seat cooler bags.

Every True Kit is produced using state of the art inflatable technology.  Premium German-made Mehler Valmex® is bonded using the latest thermo-welded seam technology.  Mehler have been producing the highest quality textiles for over 60 years, that's why we use their fabric.  What does this mean for you?  It's not the cheapest fabric, but it means you can head out on the water knowing we have your safety in mind.  Our high pressure AirDecks are extremely rigid and light, yet have fold-away convenience when stored.

Wheels can be fitted to the transom of the Navigator to make it effortless to get from the carpark to the water.
