High performance & heavy duty salt & freshwater inflatable sport dinghy tender boat. Boat is tested and designed for both 15″ short shaft outboards and 20″ long shaft. For optimal performance we recommend a 15″ short shaft outboard. Can handle both 2 or 4 stroke motors. Comes with all original paperwork needed for easy and hassle free registration. Newport Vessels is USCG rated and registered. Unique and original Hull ID/HIN numbers with each boat Comes with Newport Vessels 2 year warranty. The small and extremely portable 10ft inflatable sport boat can be inflated and deflated in less than 5 minutes. The Santa Cruz is perfect to use as a versatile tender boat, fishing boat, or small run about boat. The Santa Cruz has extremely large tubes (18inches) which makes it very stable and maneuverable at high speeds. If you’re looking for speed and performance, the ideal motor paring is the 9.9 Honda outboard, Tohatsu outboard, or Evinrude outboard or any comparable motor. You can reach speeds of 25+ mph with this set up. The extremely high-pressure inflatable keel allows the inflatable boat to reach maximum performance while banking, turning, and accelerating. The materials used to construct the Newport Vessels Santa Cruz Model are triple layered 1,100 denier PVC. What’s this mean? It means we use the exact same materials used in professional White Water rafts. In fact we use an extra layer of polyester in our boats to give the material more flexibility for when folding up and storing away. Since our boats are made with the same materials, same construction methods, and techniques, our boats are just as indestructible as white water rafts. Our boats are made to be dragged up on shore, run into docks, and to keep up with the wear and tear of boating.
