Finding the Right Tender for Your Boat, by Chris Caswell (continued)

Walker Bay Gen 450

Walker Bay Gen 450

The “gen” in the name of this deluxe tender reflects a new generation of Walker Bay tenders, and the 14-foot 9-inch sport boat has been updated and upgraded in a number of ways, including a new look, thicker fabric, a wider rear bench seat, and better leg room beneath the console. Designed to be stylishand offer high performance, the Gen 450 has room on the dashboard for GPS/chartplotter displays behind the smoked windshield, and the high-back seat has rounded sides for support on sharp turns. The L-shaped bow seating is large enough for three people and doubles as a sunpad with dual-layer foam cushioning. Two generous stowage compartments in the bow and under-seat stowage are augmented by a push-button hydraulic hatch in the stern to free the Gen 450 of clutter. With the fuel tank forward, this Walker Bay runs flat and, with a 60-horsepower outboard, tops out at better than 30 knots
