Lammina AL


Key Features

  • Aluminum hull open tender
  • Light weight yet rugged construction
  • Perfect for limited capacity davits
  • Ideal sailboat tender
  • Durable enough for rocky shores & coral reefs
  • Special rubber non skid material
  • Rubber keel protector on full length of keel

World-renowned, innovative design created to fit your needs.

This light-weight, hard-bottomed open tender is perfect for boats with lighter capacity davits. Featuring a tough aluminum hull for weight reduction and durability, this solidly constructed hull provides years of reliable use.

The Lammina AL easily cuts through wakes and chop with a lower horsepower than fiberglass tenders. A full-length rubber keel protector enables you to cruise through unknown areas without worry, and its double layer floor guarantee a dry deck and a stable ride. The bow locker serves as a convenient boarding step and comfortable seat for guests. You can also use it to store a portable fuel tank where the fuel line passes underneath the floor, leaving the deck free of obstructions. As an important key feature, the models from 8 to 10ft come with an 820 CSM Orca® Coated Fabric, it offers the thickest and strongest fabric in their segment which brings extra protection. The versatile full-sized Lammina AL has a modular design with customizable seating and console choices.

Our chrome-free Pretreatment and Powder Coating Technology offers a superior coating adherence. The Lammina AL line also can be requested uncoated. These include lifting and towing eyes vertically positioned to avoid these from bending and reinforced transom knees.

Ten models available from 8 to 16 feet.

The best little dinghy we’ve ever had

After over 40,000 miles of cruising we now have the very best little dinghy. With aluminium rib hull it is very light for walking up beaches or actually just pulling it as it is so robust. It tows like a dream even in a bit of bouncy weather, rig a halter, perfect for 4no, we run it with either a 3hp 2stroke or 5hp 4stroke or actually it rows extremely well. So much better than an inflatable bottom. For long passages we deflate the sides, put it in a bag and stow it on top of the coachroof. A joy to use and own.

Brilliant boat - very efficient service

9.5 AB Lammina AL with Bow Locker

We purchased this RIB/ Tender at the Southampton Boat show in 2021. Firstly a big thank you to Julie Newens and her team for great after sales support. We purchased the RIB with Beachcaster style launching wheels to replace our aging Plastic.o 2.4 wooden slats tender. To get these to clear the external towing eyes I bought 4 no 200 x 100 x 50 mm aluminium box xextion to act as spacers and bolted Reese to the transom with 8 no. 75 mm m6 nuts and bolt I 316 stainless Steel. At present er are awaiting delivery of our new 15hp Tojatsu and in the meantime are icing our 2 stroke 4 hp mariner.
Generally the AB has a similar speed as the Plastimo with the 4 hp butis much drier and more stable. I will submit a further review with the new engine but so far I am e tremely impressed with the AB

AB ribs are the best, this is my 4th(all on different boats as tenders)! They are really dry boats due to the bow rise and hull shape, very well made, last forever with the hypalon tubes. Great service and prices from Chas Newens Marine.
