Callinectes Tender

Constructed to international standards (ISO) incorporating a cored infused fiberglass hull, mahogany deck and jet pump, the Callinectes Tender provides owners with a versatile classically styled people mover and water sport platform.

Incorporating flowing curves, rich varnished mahogany and chromed deck jewels, this tender resembles the classic Chris-Craft and Riva of yesteryear. The incredibly strong and light weight infused fiberglass hull is bonded to a hand laid mahogany deck, interior, and veneered transom, surrounding the captain and up to four passengers with brilliant varnished wood. Powered by a high-output low displacement turbo-charged engine coupled to a jet drive, the Callinectes 16 Tender offers a powerful and elegant ride that combines extra safety features with high fuel efficiency and low emissions.
