until recently I didn't know Walker Bay made larger tenders, I had always thought they made smaller models only. Couple of months ago, I came across their 15' model while researching tenders for the 84 Lazzara we started running. Looked at nautica, Novurania, ab, etc....all the usual suspects, and decided on the 15' Walker Bay Generation 450 as it had the most roomy seating layout. We ve been using it non stop for a week in the Exumas now and it's an impressive little boat. When lightly loaded the 75hp Honda is almost too much power but with 8 to 10 adults it will get on plane without effort. Nice V hull with good sheer that cuts well thru the chop and keeps the boat very dry The layout is far better than any other tenders in that size range with a wider bow seat and a huge storage area under and aft of the helm bench. The helm bench is set fairly low so stuff you may put down on the bench will not fall overboard unlike others tenders with high seats. Good storage under the bow seats as well. One great feature is the twin insulated coolers built in the stern area, easy to reach and perfect when exploring beaches and sandbars for a while! Ours also has upgraded upholstery, courtesy lights, stereo, VHF and a Simrad touch screen sounder/GPS. Three minor gripes ... Cable steering instead of hydraulic , the smim ladder geometry makes it completely useless and at night you have to stick the removable pole light instead of having a stern light on the motor. Easy fix though So, if you re in need of a 13 to 17' RIB, take a look at the Walker Bays. We got ours from the dealer in Naples Florida (Inflatable boats of Florida), they deliver and service south Florida too.
