Ultralite 290SS

The perfect combination of lightweight and usability in a small open tender

lightweight and reliable

The Ultralite 290SS "Space Saver" takes you anywhere you want to go with peace of mind and a smaller footprint

Ultralite 290SS

The UL290SS “Space Saver” is built to handle up to a 10hp engine, to take you and up to three other passengers a little further.  The SS version of the UL290 has smaller diameter tubes which makes for a smaller footprint on deck and gives more room overall inside the boat.  As their name suggests, the Ultralites’ low weight make them a real alternative for those who may have chosen a soft bottom tender in the past but would prefer the performance of a hard hull. Ultralite tenders are roomy and strong, yet light and easy to transport. These little boats can be launched and recovered by a single person, and are easily transported on a roof rack. The UL hull is built from 2.5mm thick powder coated marine grade aluminum, and the tubes feature1100 Decitex Valmex® PVC or Orca® Hypalon material, cut and assembled to exacting standards. The simple layout of the UL, with an uncluttered design and numerous standard accessories, make the UL series one of the best values in inflatable boats.
