300 Tuff Tender | Polycraft

The little boat with big boat stability!

The 3.00 Tuff Tender was originally designed for use as a tender for larger craft and is a popular choice in this category as polyethylene is not abrasive against gel coated and painted surfaces.

The ever popular 3M Tuff Tender is the first model in the Polycraft range to receive the Aquathene treatment and has shed an amazing 18kg.

This great little dinghy now weighs just 87kg, can still accept a 15hp outboard and comes with a four year warranty. In comparison the Quintrex 3.1m Dart weighs 61kg but can only accept an 8hp outboard and is only covered by a three year warranty.

Due to the Tuff Tender’s awesome stability and safety attributes born from its dual skin and tri hull design, it has become an increasingly accepted option as a small fishing boat for protected waterways and freshwater impoundments.

The recessed stainless steel handles make it easy for two people to carry, while also providing lifting points for davits.

The moulded anchor well, cleat and stainless steel shackle ensure easy towing, anchoring and mooring.

Video Overview

Hear from our customers

Hamilton Island, in beautiful Whitsunday Islands and Great Barrier Reef, requires a sturdy, stable and somewhat bulletproof vessel for our Hire Fleet, and the Polycraft range has certainly fulfilled that requirement.

Hamilton Island has been running a fleet of 10 Polycraft hire boats for over 11 years and will continue using these stable operational vessels for many years to come. The life span, ease of use and repair have certainly influenced the decision to stick with Polycraft, they are easily the best choice for hire and drive applications.
