The inflatable dinghy was bought new in 2014 and outfitted with a Yamaha 8 hp outboard motor with an extended control arm.  Dinghy cradle brackets were added to the Pilothouse roof for carrying the dinghy during cruising. A 120v electric winch and davit are used to lower and raise the dinghy onto its cradle. The dinghy is also outfitted with demountable navigation lights, anchor, and towing line and is covered with a purpose-made dinghy cover.

The motor has a harness that makes it easy to lift off the dinghy and there is a portable outboard motor stand that is stored in the lazaret.
