“Dear Skip,

Since the day we received our new Skipper 10 custom dinghy I have been waiting to write this letter expressing our appreciation for the personal service and wonderful finished product we received from Tender Care Boats. We have been sending pictures and personal notes as we have enjoyed "KNOT HIS", named by your own Tera Toft, for the past few months. The reason for the delay in writing is because I wished to see if the early satisfaction carried over into daily use of the dinghy. After repeated enjoyable days of fun on the water I can report that the on water use of "our little yacht" has been a delight. She performs responsively and each time we go out people are pointing and asking where we got such a lovely little craft. When we go into a restaurant it is not uncommon to return to people on the dock admiring her.

Every aspect of building this custom product was completed with personal contacts from you and your staff to ensure that we were getting the boat just as we specified. The attention to detail was evident from the start. The receipt of pictures as construction proceeded allowed us to feel that we were involved in every stage of completion. The delivery of the boat was on a truck with a specially designed cradle and the driver was certainly knowledgable in seeing that his instructions were followed until the boat was carefully unwrapped and lifted from his truck.

I certainly encourage new owners to go for sea trials after completion. We were unable to do this, however your quick response to questions made new operation an easy process.

In summary, I can state that we are obviously satisfied with all aspects of our experience with Tender Care Boats. Please feel free to use this letter of thanks,for a well done project, to inform others of our experiences with Tender Care Boats.

Best wishes to all,“

Skipper 10' and 11' - Custom Yacht Tender

The Skipper 10' was designed with a specific market yacht owner in mind. The Skipper 10' meets and exceeds the requirements for the sport yacht owner who needs a small, light, sporty, and stylish. The Skipper 10' idea was a vision of Skip's to create such a product. The Skipper 10' and 11' were designed by Hak Soo Ha, the lead designer at Ford and Lincoln as well as Mark Fitzgerald of Fitzgerald marine architecture.

Today's yacht tender market is rapidly changing, and several characteristics have risen to the top of the list for customer expectations - Quality of Build, craftsmanship, durability, ergonomics and affordability. It's no secret why Tender Care Boats has embarked on a new journey to "design and build the highest quality yacht tender on the market today," says Skip Reisert, Owner and President of Tender Care Boats.

The Skipper 10' and Skipper 11' models are designed and crafted with the most important equipment, features and people in mind... you, the customer.
