Our choice of dinghy and outboard AB Rider and Mercury

Our Dinghy:                                                                       

It combines safety, comfortable tender with power and speed similar to jetski in one. Construction and design are robust as the reinforced fiberglass (GRP) is molded with air tubes Orca(CSM) material (Hypalon®) one of the strongest material used to build big RIB’s. As we equipped our tender in 30HP Mercury outboard, it had reached a maximum speed of 30 kts! It is just great!

ABRider is equipped with a two-stroke 30HP outboard engine made in Japan as it was the lightest available on the market (52Kg) and as all two strokers easy to maintain, adjust and repair by anyone. This is the biggest advantage of this set, as two-stroke engines are extremely reliable, simply build with the parts available around the World. Most of the engines still used for over 15 years at fisherman’s boats, coast guards, police and military forces as they reliable and last forever…

In the past, two-stroke outboards suffered a reputation as fuel-drinkers, dirty-exhaust motors- it is not the truth anymore. Manufactures improved them a lot. However  many bigger size, conventional two-strokes have been suspended in production and replaced by state-of-the-art, direct-injected two-strokes and fuel-injected two-strokes, available in great array of horsepower ratings. Currently, produce engines present great performance for the way they preserve fuel and accelerate a boat like crazy.

DI (direct-injected) two-stroke outboard at lower rpm is stronger in performance because they use a power stroke with every turn of the crank.

Turboswing for water ski

With this tender setup, you can enjoy also water skiing. You can install the Turbo swing to make it easy and safe.

Stunning conditions as it is brand new approx 12-15 hour work only, after 10 hours of Mercury engine break-in procedure completed. 

As the engine has its own alternator we add a marine grade battery 42Ah 900A Exide Start AGM EM900 which allows trouble-free startup by turning the key, gives you the freedom to add any equipment on board. Power white light (not obligatory but increasing safety during night usage) has been installed. Additionally RPM meter was mounted.

The gasoline 25l tank is hidden in the spacious bow compartment. Total weight is 192kg + tank. 

The new AB Rider delivers the ultimate water experience. Its unsurpassed design and outstanding performance will give you many hours of safe and exhilarating fun. It is relatively lightweight, fuel-efficient and exciting 10’ inflatable has ample seating for two adults and plenty of storage to keep your cargo protected and dry at all times. It will be still a tender to your mother ship and can be lifted by its four davit lifting points for storage. The AB Rider was made with the same safety features found on other inflatable boats such as three air chambers and tough Orca(CSM) material. The AB Rider was designed for those looking for a new type of thrilling and versatile watercraft. - this is what manufacturer marketing division says but I can 100% confirm.

As we equipped our tender in 30HP Mercury outboard we had reached a maximum speed of 30 kts! It is just great!

This speed is possible in very comfortable conditions: no waves or just small, 2 persons, no other heavy equipment or luggage, as even small waves will be made us flying above the water.

Before you buy this excellent toy make sure to check carefully parameters of your Davits. 

AB Raider has different shapes then most of the standard dinghies, the distance between the outboard engine and steering wheel column must be check.

Once you lift it up dinghy should go tightly to arms of davits against air tubes. To achieve this you might need to do some adaptation of davit lifting points or davits mounting points. For those who tow their tender behind there is no problem. 

Actually,  the only reason that I am selling this wonderful set of equipment is our mistake in the installation of davits. They were prepared for a simple dinghy as the manufacture of our boat prepare reinforcement of the deck ( and under the deck) for future davits retrofit for standard rib. So we decide to farewell with such performance as there are no options on the market which could be so light and robust has a console and allow such powerful engine..
