What is an open boat?
The characteristics of an open boat :
open boats are boats that have an open deck without a cabin . They are manoeuvred with a steering console or a tiller. They are generally small motor boats , easily transportable and towable.
open boats are perfect for coastal cruises , for fishing or for water sports. Because open boats have no superstructure it is very easy to move around them. RIBs are often preferred as the first boat purchase, but open boats can also be perfect for beginners . In particular, from a safety point of view, open boats offer a good freeboard height. Navigation is therefore more comfortable too. For sea trips with young children, this is a good point. Open boats have different hull designs, from very classic to very sporty and colourful.
Open boats are Dayboats which benefit from many advantages:
