We are planning on cruising relatively soon and seeking a new dinghy for the adventure. We've been working the past 2-3 years getting our boat ready and recently got an arch with davits. Now ready to find the dinghy! Our boat is custom built 42 ft and for the dinghy to go up front on a long passage- we have limitations due to bronze vents on the forward cabin. We are thinking a 10-11 ft dinghy and must have at least 36 inches between the tubes (actual floor space in the dinghy) to clear the vents. Our initial thoughts are no more than 150 lbs (lighter the better) and considering a hard bottom either aluminum or fiberglass. Prefer not to have one that has to be blown up and stowed away due to space. Lastly considering a 10lb engine to go with it. Would love to hear suggestions.
