New and improved Rovers are high-powered tenders with generous beams and great internal space and carrying capacity and a facility to take bigger motors for that extra performance. So seaworthy and safe, yet are packed and stowed so small for easy transportation. The Rovers are convenient and versatile, with a performance that will surprise you.

Inflatable keels (except R260) and a range of deck options make these a great performers, packed with features and now completed with a new high profile rub strake for added good looks and protection.
