AB inflatables builds the ABJet 380 with a six-person capacity that includes a helm bench seat for two with stowage underneath. There's seating for two more and additional stowage at the bow. Seating for another couple is just forward of the helm console.

Power for the 380 is a 150 hp Rotax 4-TEC 150 ECT motor. SeaStar steering is standard. Orca engineered fabrics are used in the tubes, a combination of polyethylene on the outside and neoprene for the middle and inner layers, to resist abrasion and weather while staying watertight. Some options for the 380 include a teak sole, ­Bimini top, GPS/chart plotter, custom upholstery and stainless-steel tie downs.

Whom It's For: The yachtsman looking for a durable, easy-to-stow tender that has a sense of style.

Picture  This: You wake up in the mooring field to gin-clear water and blue skies. The kids want to do some snorkeling. You pack them up, put together a picnic lunch, drop your coffee in the tender's cup holder and head off toward some fish-rich brain coral in the nearshore shallows. It's going to be a memorable day.
