Rendova’s new XT inflatable tenders are guaranteed never to leak.
Unlike Hypalon tubes, “air is trapped in an unconventional way” with the use of a foam collar coated with polymer. The hull and other structures are a combination of Kevlar, carbon fiber and epoxy-fiberglass. XTs are offered in three sizes — 11, 12.5 and 15 feet (pictured) — and with weights from 600 to 1,000 pounds. Prices (with power) range from $21,000 to $45,000 depending on size, power and options.
