Tenders and Dinghies or little boats for bigger boats.

Dighies, Tenders, Pram dinghies, little boat, sandpit boats.... call them what you may but John Crawford Marine’s range of quality, lightweight fibreglass tenders and dinghies offer excellent value! Thousands of these popular Australian made tender / dinghies have been sold since the factory was established in 1983. And not only for the obvious reasons.

They have been used by:

Caravanners and campers chasing RedClaw and fishing in smooth water, make an ideal car topper.
Families and Kindergartons who’ve turned them into sand pits for the kids.
Restaurants who fill them with ice and seafood for smorgasboards.
Truckies who use them for aerofoil - really!
TV and movie producers who use them as props in TV shows and movies.
And, as strange as this may sound, sometimes by boaties who use them as a cost effective way of getting to and from their moored boat!!!

Reasons to own a Crawford tender/ dinghy:

Good stability for fishing compared with some kayaks.
No deflation problems which are so prevalent with inflatable style boats.
Easy to repair if they get damaged
Very affordable prices!
Built to Australian standards AS1799 unlike most of the small boats on the market
They don’t mark the side of your boat like aluminium boats do !
Attractive nautical blue and white colour.
Best of all they proudly Australian made and distrubuted.
