WEST MARINE 8' Sportyak 245 Dinghy
Exceptionally light, solidly built, incredibly long-lasting and stable, these boats have built a solid reputation in the world of leisure boating. The new Sportyak 245 is the result of 35 years of experience and development!
Light weight, easy to transport, giving you excellent glide when you row, it can also be fitted with a motor up to 2hp. From carrying up to 3 people and equipment to an anchored boat, to getting out to the best fishing spots, to being a great toy for the kids… There are almost no limits for this super safe and versatile boat!
Safety was the top priority for the 245’s designers. The relatively low cockpit rim and numerous carry handles make climbing back in after falling/jumping out simple and safe. When empty, the cockpit float line is below the level of the floor, allowing the cockpit to self-bail. One, two or three people can fit comfortably in a 245.
The catamaran hull gives the best possible stability. It means you can load up on one side of the boat without fear of capsizing. This shape with flat lateral sections gives also an exceptional glide, with an efficient anti-drift. The wheels are integrated into the design of the hull. The Sportyak 245 is fitted with two wide rollers for easy handling over beaches, banks and jetties. The wheels are integrated into the design of the hull and don’t in any way affect its performance on water. You can load all your equipment in the boat and take it easily down to the water’s edge.
The rowing seat is fitted with integral “glove compartments”, and the carry handles and other openings make it easy to fit an anti-theft cable around the boat. The flat rear design was also designed for simple, safe upright storage, taking up less floor area. The BIC Sport Sportyak 245 is the ultimate, durable, safe, mid-size dinghy for a variety of on-water activity.
