They’re coming, they’re coming!

The 2023 Royal Nautiq lineup has been released.

It’s the moment you all have been waiting for. Royal Nautiq finally has our own lineup of dinghies for your consumption. We’ve been working hard over the winter with our manufacturer, building the best tender design from our perspective, and it will be coming soon to a Royal Nautiq dealer near you.

We are using the simplified is the best approach methodology when it came to our model range. Our goal was to take the guesswork out of choosing an appropriate dinghy for the dock that offers the best performance, value, durability, and modular design. We took the most advanced boat building materials and design with proven construction methods to build our dinghies. Bonus, it is mostly recyclable to reduce its footprint when the time comes.

We’re starting off with two sizes, 2.9m (9ft 6in) and 3.1m (10ft 2in) long. All hulls are made of powder coated aluminum with a double hull configuration, allowing for a bow box large enough for a 3gal gas tank and fuel line rigged below the deck. All tube sets are made of Achilles T10 fabric in light grey with EPDM flat rub rail for maximum durability and long service life. The tubes will be naked, as in no handles, oar locks, graphics, etc., thus allowing a custom look based on individual requirements.

Three models will be available for purchase. CL290 Open, CL310 Open, and CL310 Power Ready which includes the FCT7 console. The console is a factory option for all Open models, as is the Safety Handle package, a Royal Nautiq exclusive. We know you’re going to love our tenders as much as we do, and we wanted to make one for all the people out there that have come to visit us bearing their design notes. Here it is, and we hope it will live up to your high standards.
