The Sportyak 245 is the result of 50 years of experience and development! This mid sized dinghy combines the best features of those other legendary boats that are the BIC 252 and the Sportyak 213.

Used as tenders for boats and for fishing, the Sportyak 245 is the ideal dinghy: more stable, more durable and lighter than the classical dinghies thanks to her particular hull and the technology used to make it.

Light weight, easy to transport, giving you excellent glide when you row, it can also be fitted with either a thermal or electric motor. From carrying men 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!

More than 150 000 Sportyaks have so far been manufactured, they are 
100% recyclable at the end of their life-cycle and have become a standard feature in the yachting world.

The double hull gives added safety to passengers. Even if a very violent impact made a hole on the outside hull, the inner hull would provide sufficient flotation to get back to shore.


"As the supposed true king of dinghies/tenders, the best all-round performer on the market, the 245 lived up to its billing...."
