For anyone who has a yacht or motorboat on a mooring getting back and forth from land is always a subject for debate and consideration. Clearly much will depend on land access to the water, distance out to the boat, crew numbers, safety and of course cost.
Above would be my ideal, sturdy aluminum boat with a big-ish outboard, can't see from the photo but looks like a 10 or 15HP which will get there reasonably quickly. From what I've read these Scandinavian boats have a good reputation for sea keeping.
More often than not something like this is the tender of choice either rowed or sporting a Seagull or other outboard well past it's sell by date. I'm being slightly unkind as this dinghy looks to be in good condition compared to many neglected examples I've seen.
Something slightly bigger but similar, the lines of this tender suggest an attractive and efficient boat. The nice high free board should make for a dry ride. It would come up well with some TCL but none the less seems to be giving good service.
