Just when we thought innovation was absent from the under-20-foot tender market, our editors discovered Rendova boats. The new, modern-looking XT 15 is built for comfort, safety, and a dry ride. A closed-cell foam collar provides cushioning and flotation, while the deep-V hull is laid up with carbon fiber, Kevlar, and vacuum-infused E-glass for strength. This Rendova design has plush seating for eight, and an innovative “beach door” opens in the bow so you can step ashore easily. The XT 15 can accommodate a 70-horsepower outboard.
Looking for a sleek express cruiser that will give you something a bit different with a top end in the mid-40s? Now that we have your attention, check out the Filippetti S55, and get a load of just what this Italian builder has in the pipeline.
