The much-anticipated globally OC400 is a a full carbon four metre tender with an expected nett weight of 85kgs will be unique in its category.
The team at Offshore Tenders will also release another great innovative collaboration with the guys of ZeroJet; the first electric jet tender. The unique, early-planing design and lightness of the Offshore Cruising Tender range, combined with New Zealand’s leading jet technology is bound to turn some heads and blow everyone’s expectations.

Offshore Cruising Tenders has been responsible for reintroducing hard tenders to the boating industry, and proving it to be as a strong concept as it was 30 years ago. Up-cycling the dinghy concept with modern composite technology, delivers a light, dry, stable, efficient and durable ride for all boat users. The company has attracted clients worldwide and is exporting 80 per cent of its production directly from the Bay of Islands workshop to all major yachting centres in the world.
“This year we celebrate our fifth year at Auckland Boat Show with our first model release in two years: the OC400FC. Made in full carbon, the OC400 will be the lightest tender in its category and have the much-anticipated, side mounted console as an option. Alongside our four metre tender we will have another ground-breaking prototype: a fully-electric jet tender made in collaboration with ZeroJet. Come celebrate Kiwi ingenuity at its best with us! ”
