Onne Van der Wal - Nautical Photographer
"I have used my 9'8" aluminum hull North Atlantic Inflatables tender on my sailboat Snoek for 4 summers. I am now on my 2nd season on my GB32 Snow Goose and 3/4 of the way down the ICW. On the Goose we have the tender hanging in a pair of davits off the stern. I can run ashore for dinner or provisions with two folding bikes and two adults in the tender and still get on the plane with our 9.9 hp Tohatsu. The NAI tender has been an absolute joy to use, so dry, maneuverable and it runs so well and gets on the plane with two adults and all the junk you can pile in to it. Easy to haul ashore on a pebble beach or concrete ramp (I added folding wheels) and as far as the weight of the boat with outboard on the transom is unnoticed in the handling of the Goose underway.”

Tom has bought two boats & several motors from us in support of his Portland, Maine-based amazing seaweed business.
The Friends of Sequin were looking for a rugged inflatable boat with an aluminum bottom and, after much careful research, they decided on a North Atlantic Inflatable. "We love Atlantic Inflatables! Rob and Bridget are always helpful and their dog is adorable. We are very tough on inflatables, most of the time landfing on a rocky beach and then pulling the boat over those rocks to tie her up. We have carried everything imaginable in the boat and it holds up well. Whenever we have a problem, which is not too often, Rob and Bridget are there to help us. They even gave us a "loaner" when we were in a pickle last year!"
Ford was looking for a strong inflatable to withstand the cold of a Maine winter and being dragged up and down a cement ramp to get to his lighthouse all year round.
John and Tadji were looking for a light weight, Hypalon dinghy, at a good price, that would cut through the water nicely to support their ocean sailing training trips. "I am still using the NA Inflatable, it's been the best inflatable dinghy I have ever had, without doubt, and I have a lot of them. I have given a few shout outs on instagram..." Take a look at their gorgeous Kaufman 47, Quetzal, where their North Atlantic Inflatable 9'8" RIB lives.
North Atlantic Inflatables can be found in many Fire Departments across New England! We have both larger RIBs and inflatable keel rescue boats in action. Call for references.
"I love both the boat and the engine. Best inflatable I’ve ever had!" - C. Anthony, owner of a 8'8" RIB with a 9.8h Tohatsu motor.
"I would like to share that we continue to be super happy with our 8'8" boat from 2019! It is remarkably robust, perfect for the Maine coast, and very forgiving :)
Thanks!" - Tom, owner of an inflatable keel, roll up inflatable.
"We are absolutely LOVING our new inflatable!!! We are so impressed with the speed and handling - it's even more than we'd hoped for. We've been using it to explore the nearby islands and even had an island picnic last week. So much fun.
We also really appreciate the way we were treated during the entire process. It was truly an enjoyable experience. " - Bill & Cristine with their new 12'8" RIB
