The larger of the two RT (or ‘Round Tail’) models the VARIANE RT260 is an excellent all-round inflatable dinghy and is suitable as a tender or as an emergency / auxiliary boat for larger craft. The VARIANE RT260 has 360 degree tubing, in a similar fashion to ‘SAS’ or commando-style dinghies, giving it a more compact profile with the absence of a transom and rear cones.
An outboard engine is easily mounted on a bracket (supplied) that fits to the tube, up to 3.5hp in size, and the RT260 can also be easily rowed ashore. The VARIANE RT260 uses professional grade 1100 Hytex Fabric throughout its construction, making it lightweight yet rigid when inflated, with the patented air deck affording extra buoyancy and cutting weight and bulk – it can be simply rolled up and packed away in the supplied carry case for easy transport and deployment.
