What people are saying about us



John and Lyn Martin from Sail South Pacific (clients since 2015)

“To all those thinking of upgrading to an OC Tender, go ahead, you’ll never look back! Two years ago we moved from a RHIB (Rigid Hulled Inflatable boat) to a 3.0m OCT. 

We named her OCeloT because she’s good in the water thanks to a Tohatsu 9.8hp outboard and out thanks to her light weight and a great pair of wheels. Boarding steps at the back of our OC Tender allow easy access from the water and she’s an all round great platform for everything we need to do away from mother ship Windflower.

On a scale of 1 – 10 for practicality our OCT comes in right up there, 🙂 10. For after sales service Russell, Karin and the team go above and beyond and rate the full 10.1 Since taking possession or our OCT there has been continuous development in both the small detail and large.

Well done guy’s, keep up the great work, we highly recommend your product.”

“We would like to thank you for our awesome tender! Its bloody amazing! Everyone I meet wants one and I understand why! With our 15 hp we are faster than most tenders with way way bigger motor! We can load way more “cargo” than we could with our old inflatable and this with a smaller motor! Instead of doing impossible “rubber” repairs on an inflatable we can make our new baby look like brand new with the help of a little gelcoat! We also keep the weight down on our davits with is another huge upside!Feel free to use us a reference at any time! Thanks again! And keep the good work up!”

“Hi Karin.

Just want to thank you for helping sell my fantastic OC300 2016 model via your social media. I was amazed at the response within a 48 hour period with eight cruisers all wanting to purchase my second hand tender. I highly recommend your product. It is a great example of kiwi ingenuity. They certainly hold their second hand value!

Once again thanks for your help.  All the best to the team.

Cheers Peter Nicholls”

Heartfelt Thanks for an Outstanding Experience with OC Tenders!

Dear OC Tenders Family,

I hope this email finds you all in high spirits. I wanted to take a moment to express our immense gratitude for the exceptional product and service we received during our recent purchase of a tender from your company.

First and foremost, we were blown away by the incredible product quality. The tender we acquired exceeded our expectations in every way. It’s evident that your team takes pride in delivering top-notch tenders that are not only reliable but also a joy to use on the water.

However, what truly set our experience apart was the outstanding level of friendliness and expertise demonstrated by everyone we interacted with at OC Tenders. From the very first conversation to the final stages of the process, we were met with warmth, professionalism, and a wealth of knowledge.

A special shout-out goes to Tina and Karin, who were instrumental in making the entire process a breeze. Their attentiveness and commitment to ensuring a smooth journey were remarkable. From answering our questions to guiding us through the selection process, they were on top of everything, and we couldn’t have asked for better support.

In an industry where our prior experiences have been less than satisfactory, Tina and Karin truly stood out as shining examples of professionalism and coolness. Their dedication to customer satisfaction is unparalleled, and we sincerely appreciate their efforts.

With OC Tenders, not only did we find an incredible product, but we also discovered a team that cares deeply about their customers and their boating experiences. Your company’s commitment to excellence is evident in every aspect of our interaction.

Once again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for providing us with a top-of-the-line tender and an exceptional customer experience. We are thrilled with our purchase and will undoubtedly recommend OC Tenders to fellow boating enthusiasts.

Wishing you continued success and fair winds ahead!

Warm regards,

Xavi and Kina Roig

“We think the OC is a total game changer and are very pleased to have purchased one. As any boat gets smaller, the compromises get larger. It becomes harder to get things right. You guys have manage to build the perfect yacht tender. That is something of a major achievement in such a small boat.”



Richie Rigg (client from 2015 to 2022)

Fishing out of an OCT is a dream, no worries about barracuda or big mackerel bites, gaff or other punctures, with a much faster, drier ride in rough conditions.

Go for it guys, best tender in the world !!”



Dan Deddo – 2020 Ranger R29 “Chill Awhile” – Seattle WA

…” told them I ordered mine with 2 bungholes because I wasn’t sure how it would sit on the davit and whether I’d keep the stern to port or not… they loved the wheels. I gave my reasoning for going with the carbon model. Weight of the engine and tender, with the accessories, comes in at LESS than 150 pounds. The Davit system is about 40 pounds. This is unheard of.  Every day I have people stopping to look at it. I warned them:  if you don’t want anyone to ever introduce themselves to you, then don’t buy one!!!! People will come up to you.”

“Hey Karin Just a quick thank you note. Our OC330 is everything we hoped. I’ve named her Fluffy, because I’m a Renegade;). Here are a couple photos to show how she’s getting a good workout in the Bahamas this season. The boarding ladder is VITAL when you are tired after a dive. All our gear fits easily, and we plane instantly with a 10hp. Also, the OC is a great conversion starter. Today, the opening line was “want to trade dinghies?” We are starting to meet a few people with the magic tender, so it seems your business continues to flourish, as it should. Best wishes and see u in NZ in a 2022, I hope! Julie Taylor Follow me in Instagram @SYRenegade”

“Now in Sardinia, heading West through Italy, Sicily and to Montenegro. I have this big beautiful catamaran and honestly 80% of the people who come up to gawk are looking at the OCT !! She is cool.”
