If you're thinking 'that's crazy...an inflatable boat that attaches to the nose of a Jet Ski!?' you would be right! However, upon greater thought and inspection, the brilliance and utility of this X-Tenda Jet becomes apparent. We tested the X-Tenda Jet for performance, quality, portability and fun factor, and we can say that it passed those tests with flying colors.
As far as speeds and maneuvering are concerned, the X-Tenda Jet is highly maneuverable at low, and its max tested speeds of around 30 kts. Ride was very predictable and comfortable in varying conditions for passengers - this design is solid.
The construction and quality are top notch. These X-Tenda Jet are manufactured in Europe to very high quality standards, and it definitely reflects - double welded seam construction, multiple air chambers, high quality components all cleanly and properly secured in place, and exactly where they should be. The connecting hardware is stainless with nylon straps, and after initial installation of three eye bolts (or folding cleats) on the nose, port and starboard Jet Ski rub rail, hook-up and disconnect is a breeze.
The portability was beyond our expectation. The X-Tenda Jet comes in a canvas gear bag which was easy to handle, and all together weighs approximately 60 lbs. 12 Volt inflator is included and all four chambers inflated in approximately 7 minutes. The deflated X-Tenda Jet stores and transports easily in your trunk, lazarette, tender garage, and can also be secured on the aft portion of your Jet Ski.
Utility of the X-Tenda Jet was impressive, it functions as a Tender for Cruisers who have a jet ski only aboard, and will safely and comfortably shuttle people and gear back and forth from any landing site e.g. beach, boat, dock etc., and also allows shallow water exploring without worrying about prop / environmental damage. If you'd like to expand the utility of your existing jet ski tender, the X-Tenda Jet provides that, and a whole lot more.
Considering how well the X-Tenda Jet performs, we absolutely love and recommend it as a meaningful and very cool accessory for your jet ski tender.
