12′ Point Defiance

This versatile rowing dinghy can be upgraded to a sailboat for all-around summer fun.

In-Stock Special


This 12′ Point Defiance rowboat is brand new and ready to go! This family-friendly dinghy offers tremendous versatility. It can be rowed either tandem or solo, and is a delight to sail with the optional sailing ugprade. It can easily accept a 2hp outboard motor to make an excellent fishing boat. The hull is very forgiving and it is probably our easiest boat to sail, so it’s great for teaching kids or grandkids what sailing is all about. It’s a fun tender for a mothership, but also just big enough to be a worthy standalone boat in its own right. If you are thinking of getting into boating and are looking for your first boat, it would be hard to go wrong with a Point Defiance.

This in-stock Point Defiance includes an Endeavor Blue gelcoat stripe that looks really sharp against the white hull, with grey interior and low-maintenance rubrail trim. It has been upgraded with our unique ultralight composite construction option that reduces the boat’s weight to 130 lbs (versus the regular 150 lbs in conventional fiberglass), a stainless steel keel strip to protect the keel during beaching.
