Sunshine : Classic Dinghy and Yacht Tender

Purchase Sunshine »

North Brooklin Boats' dinghies are the finest in production today.  They come as an 11' rowing yacht tender or a 12' 6" sailing/rowing dinghy.  Both models are very stable and can handle plenty of weather. They are very low maintenance as they are built cold-molded (wood/epoxy/fiberglass) construction with an Awlgrip paint finish. These beautiful boats will last for generations.
