Tinnie 10 Vessel

TINNIE 10 is the latest project by Joey Ruiter, a designer we have featured several times before, with innovative products such as the Growler City Bike, the Inner City Bike, and the Lo-Ruiter Longboard. Built from thick lightweight aluminum, the small portable vessel weighs only 173 lbs (79kg) and features white oak plank flooring, xorel upholstered seating, a 6hp 4-stroke motor (electric option available) and has room for 2 adults. The long range goal for this dingy is to create a race class with this boat. Small power, very tight, edge to edge racing.
