As you can see the Beachmaster wheels are on our Purdon dinghy. Previously it has been a real effort to get the dinghy out of the water and up this steep wooden boat ramp but not any more. We chose the detachable wheels as we leave the dinghy on the bank upside down. Next time, the wheels are on in seconds and we can be back in the water with little effort heading back to our yacht.
Your wheels were highly recommended by our friend Chris Brearley of Barnes Bay Tasmania and we couldn't be happier.
Congratulations on a great product.

Enclosed are pictures of our two dinghies with Beachmaster Wheels.
Our first set are on an old dinghy. We use it as a means to get to our yacht, on it’s mooring.
The wheels are terrific as it enables easy movement of the dinghy over the very rocky shoreline.
The latest pair we purchased have been fitted to our new tender, a Highfield rigid inflatable dinghy.
We purchased the dinghy with the proviso that we fitted Beachmaster wheels. Whilst we haven’t used the tender much,
we are very pleased with how manageable it is to move the dinghy, especially in the shed!!!
Thanks very much,
Thanks for the wheels
They make it possible to get to my house.

Thanks for the parts, sorry it took so long to get a photo.
I will do some more when I can.
I have put the wheels on my 2.7 meter mac dingy. We live in Rangitane and have our own jetty and boatramp. In the past I had to pull the boat up on a beach trailer which required two people to do it. Now with the beachmaster wheels I can easy to do it on my own. The wheels are easy to use even through the mud and rock. I fully recommend beachmaster wheels for the ease of use, installation and overall quality.
We absolutely love our Beachmaster wheels!
They installed effortlessly onto our Highfield Classic 340 dinghy and stay clear from our outboard. It’s nice having these easily tuck up and out of the way. Beaching our dinghy is now a one man job which is great! Thank you for a great product that works!

Tried our new wheels out at Lake Lyndon.
Fantastic product nice and easy to fit.

I am attaching photos of my removable Beachmaster wheels in action in south Fiordland last summer. They worked well on the 3.2 m inflatable. They made it really easy and safe to launch and retrieve the boat on sand and gravel beaches, without having to remove the outboard and tank.
Warm greetings from Bodtedt/Germany to New Zeeland.
Finally got the inflatable crafted together,the Slip Wheels are off.
Thats the absolute best thing l've ever had in my Hands.
Thanks for the exellent quality to the manufacturer...
Happy to say I received my Beachmaster Removable Mount Set of wheels and installed them on my 14’ Aluminum Boat that I use to get to my cottage North of Vancouver Canada. Gotta say I love them! I could easily pull my boat out of the water on rocky terrain without dragging the hull. Excellent design and function. I found the blu-tac methed of hole alignment made the first mount difficult to fit over the installed studs (hole accuracy is critical), so for the second wheel I just drilled 1/4” holes through the hull using the clamped-in eyelets as drill guides and installed one bolt after each hole drilled. That seemed to work better for alignment.
Considering doing the same for my inflatable boat next.
Really enjoying the mobility here in KY/USA!
Painless installation (well, all but drilling holes in a brand new boat...I got over it) and full range of tiller motion with a simply great design. Well done!

I have just Received my boat, and Beachmaster wheels , and have just finished fitting them, I propped the boat up and used
your blutak method with a few blocks of wood to hold the weight of the wheels, once I had one set level etc I drilled one
hole and bolted it on with sealer under it, I then drilled and fitted the rest allowing the weight of the boat onto the wheel.
once checks the rest were sealed and tightened. I used big washers as others have done,
other folding wheels may be a bit cheaper but these are the best , I'm very happy with your product, and would totally
recommend to others who are considering wheels for their dingy,
again many thanks and here's a few pics,
I purchased a set of your wheels a couple of months ago for my 3.5 mtr inflatable. I’d had another type of wheel but they
got stuck in sand and were just not satisfactory.
I’m certainly impressed with the performance of the Beachmaster wheels.
We camp on the edge of a beach and I designed a system to attach the boat to the car.
We simply drive down onto the beach, unhook the boat and push it into the water.
Please Note: Beachmaster do not recommend vehicle towing.
The wheels are designed to be towed by hand at walking speed only.
Thanks for sending the wheels all the way from NZ to Scotland. The wheels were fitted and have been fully tested this past cruising summer; a really good product which transforms handling the dinghy out of the water. Highly recommended.
Picture taken in Tarbert Harbour, Loch Fyne, Scotland. The picture of our dinghy ashore is on the Isle of Bute, Scotland.
Attached are a couple of pictures taken last winter while we were in Fiji. The photos were taken on an isolated beach in Falaga, a remote island at the extreme southern end of the Fiji Lau Group. I can't extol enough how Beachmaster wheels made our life so much easier when beaching our 3.12mtr Avon dingy with a 15hp motor, petrol and anchor, all weighing about 108kg. Why anyone would buy the small plastic wheels when they can have Beachmasters is beyond me. The pneumatic tires don't dig into soft sand, so pulling the dingy onto a beach is truly a one-person job. The easy up & down mechanism is really great engineering. I highly recommend Beachmasters to anyone wanting dingy wheels.
I am very satisfied with the design, with the quality, I have never had of wheel so brilliant. I navigate in south Brittany in France, photo were taken in the Ile de Groix, I practise especially the fairground anchorage.
Just wanted to say thank you for great service and an even better product.
I've had a lot of interested people having a look.
Attached two photos.
Just wanted to say that your product is faultless. It's easy to fit and is so simple to use.
The engineering is great and I expect it will last for years to come.
Our maiden voyage was to Castle Sween on the west coast of Scotland where the wheels proved their worth.
Many thanks for supplying a brilliant product.
I am very impressed with the build quality of these wheels.
They are excellent and everything I had hoped for from a set of dinghy wheels.
Please Note: Beachmaster do not recommend vehicle towing.
The wheels are designed to be towed by hand at walking speed only.
Photos of our kids loving the beachmaster wheels!
I received the wheels and extra mounting studs for the removable bracket option, thanks great product.
The beach we are dealing with is rocky, small rocks, barnacles, very rough sand.
I had encouraged my grumpy elderly father to get some wheels several years ago, they did not hold up, too flimsy cheap real POS. Hence they broke and Dad gave up on the wheel idea.
I saw your product and could see that it was a real product not a disposable piece of junk.
Installed mounting pins on two dinghies in one short day moving pretty slow during a heat wave of 95 degrees F here in Puget Sound, this did require about 6 beers during the install as well. Also a run to the hardware store for some larger washers etc.
One dingy is FRP the other is marine grade plywood w/ penetrating epoxy finish and paint.
Instructions were great, Beachmaster is a very high quality product. Thanks.
BTW- I seldom write reviews, but am impressed with your product. Shipping to Seattle was only one week from time of order to delivery.
Just wanted to say thank you for manufacturing such an incredible product. Your product has made getting my dingy from the motorhome to the water a breeze. There are not any manufacturers making wheels for boats in the United States, that even come close to the ease of operation and installation as your product does. These Beachmaster wheels are truly unique and very light for the sturdiness that they are. I'm so glad I was able to find and order your product from California, United States. Attached are two pictures of your product being used on a 10 1/2 foot dingy with a 6 hp motor on Little Grass Valley Reservoir in the Sierra Mountains of California.
Thanks again for your exceptional service and product

Just dropping you a line to say how very much I am impressed with your retractable dinghy launch wheels.
I bought a set earlier on in the year. After much searching through the internet I was unable to
find any detachable launch wheels of comparable quality and although yours may not be the cheapest the engineering and operation put these into a league of their own.
I enclose photos of the wheels fitted to my SIB a Mercury 365 HD which with the outboard weighs approx 150 Kg.
Thanks for making a truly remarkable product.
We wanted to let you know how happy we are with your product. They are high quality, easy to install, easy to use, fantastic! I have enclosed a couple pictures and a short video of us rolling it down and into the water. Also we wanted to say how pleased and amazed we were that it only took from Monday to Thursday to have them delivered and in our hands! Your wheels are awesome.

Thank you for you very prompt & efficient despatch of my order.
I installed the Beachmaster Removable Dinghy Wheels on my brand new 3m inflatable air deck dinghy last week and have spent most of the weekend out on the beautiful Gippsland Lakes, running in my 9.8HP O/Board and ensuring that I had no leaks after installing the wheel mounts. All good - no leaks.
The dinghy wheels are fantastic and enable me ( or anyone) to manage and move the dinghy - complete with outboard motor, fuel and other stuff - with very little effort.
Without the wheels, I could not manage all this by myself and it would require a lot more effort.
They are a dream come true and brought a smile to my face every time I activated the mechanism to launch or retrieve the dinghy.
Everyone who has noticed the wheels attached to the transom has said what a great concept they are and I can only agree - brilliant.
I cannot say that installing the removable wheels was the easiest thing I have done - although I didn't have any serious problems. I found the installation instructions somewhat confusing as their seemed to be bits of information in various locations;
1. Written instructions that came with the kit
2. Templates and photographic installation instructions on the website.
I didn't use the bluetack method of prefit- but used clamps, square and tape measure to determine the best position for the wheels.
One of the things that I was mindful of was ensuring that the wheels would not interfere with the operation of the outboard motor - something I would recommend everyone bear in mind. I also tried to position the wheel brackets as far apart as possible on the transom - but not so far that the dinghys pontoon rubber seals would cause the four mounting studs to be uneven and not easily create a watertight seal on the back of the transom.
Your installation instructions and photos seem to relate to a hard shell dinghy rather than an inflatable. I think it would be helpful to add additional points to consider when installing onto an inflatable. Inflatables are ideally suited to the removable wheel model - thereby enabling the dinghy to be deflated and rolled up for transportation and storage.
This photo was taken after I had installed the wheels and outboard motor onto my inflatable air deck dinghy. They certainly take the hassle out of moving the dinghy about and make launching and retrieving a breeze.
I installed the removable wheel model so that I can deflate the dinghy for transportation and storage.
My grandson can now launch his tinny through the mangroves by himself. Photo attached.
I thought you might like a picture of your product on the shores of Lake Tahoe, California. These wheels do just the trick on the rocky shoreline of Lake Tahoe. I couldn't manage without them. They're terrific!
Photos attached - appreciate the prompt service……
Nice piece of engineering, very impressed and they work as promised. I am looking forward to a long service life.
We love our new beachmaster wheels easy to assemble & super easy to use.
Callaga Bay NSW Australia.
Here is a picture of our dinghy with it's new wheels. They work well on most of the beaches we are visiting here in the Northern Territory. So easy to pop on, and would highly recommend them. Takes the worry out of a high and dry heavy dinghy.
Just to let you know these wheels work great,used normally or with the inflatable upside down. It is a 3.2mtr Mercury with a 15hp Mercury motor and it is quite easy to launch and retrieve by one person.
Just sorting through pictures from our summer adventures on our sailboat, and would like to share this picture of my wife Anna and our inflatable tender with your Beachmaster boat wheels, at Mistake Island in downeast Maine. Our first season with the wheels installed and they proved to be a great asset! Especially with the 14 foot tidal range of downeast Maine, we need to be able to roll the dingy up quite far on the beach to prepare for an incoming tide. Thank you for a great design and ease of use!

Now after using your product for half a year I can say that it is the best wheels on the market. I had no problems launching my 4m honwave with engine and gear on a sandy beach. It saves time and money when the closest boat slip is far away. The design is fantastic! I love the way they retract and that always attracts attention of fellow boaters. Totally worth the money it costs!

I just wanted to pass on my thanks for your great product. We recently bought the removable wheel set to fit to our 3.4m Zodiac. They work really well, the photos below were taken at Osprey bay in the Ningaloo Reef area in North Western Australia. As my boat is foldable, having a sturdy lightweight set or removable wheels was necessary. Your wheels performed very well both in the soft sand with two people lifting the boat and the wheels providing additional support when launching and landing. When on the hard surfaces they were also fantastic enabling me to manoeuvre the boat inclusive of motor and fuel tank by my self. I was particularly impressed with the engineering and sturdiness of the wheels given their light weight. When it came time to pack up they are very easily removed and stored, allowing me to fold the boat.
All the best
I'm very happy to say the Beachmaster wheels work great on our 12.5' Zodiac with 30hp Yamaha. Excellent design, solid construction, easy deployment and unobtrusive when retracted. The ordering and delivery process was fast and easy. I highly recommend these wheels.
Here's a photo from Big Majors Spot, Bahamas. Too much fun is almost enough.
Your wheels are Awesome.
I can finally move my 250 lbs dinghy by myself.
We normally need 3 people to move this dinghy.
Dinghy is a HighField CL 340 HYP.
Herewith some pics of the Beachmaster wheels now installed on my AB10.
32mm solid white nylon bar was cut to 25mm in length to space the wheels away from the transom to clear the hull and they work fine.
I was so impressed with your Beachmaster wheels, I purchased a second set of wheels for my other tender.
I own a Perry 43 catamaran & have two tenders that fit on the targa bar. The fibreglass cat tender I use on Lake Macquarie & the Naiad inflatable tender with a metal bottom I use when I'm cruising up & down the coast.
I have used other beach wheels with little success. The Beachmaster wheels are extremely easy to operate & have solved the problem of moving the tenders on dry land.
The recent purchase of your wheels was on the 2/5/16.
I have attached a couple of photos.
Hi, I would like to say that we are very happy with your dinghy wheels, they are so well manufactured and work extremely well on my 3.8m Beachmaster Aakron inflatable.
They make such a difference when beaching and launching. Just amazing!
Warren and Toni
I have attached a couple of photos that I thought you might be interested in viewing.
The photos were taken at property that we own in the federal Kootznoowoo wilderness on northern Admiralty Island in Alaska. Our property borders a very productive salmon stream (Wheeler Creek) and as a result, during the mid-summer and late-summer months we have a substantial amount of brown bear activity in and around our property who feed on the salmon. We use the Zodiac shown in the photo to navigate up and down the stream, and often go out on the nearby ocean. Wheeler Creek drains into Southeast Alaska’s ocean waters.
However, due to the bear activity in the area, we are not able to leave the Zodiac out overnight near the edge of the Creek as the bears would like “play” with the Zodiac and would probably puncture it. Before buying and installing the Beachmaster tire set, we had to deflate the Zodiac every time that we used it and haul about 200-yards to store it safely in a shed near our cabin. It was a big hassle. Now with the Beachmaster tire set I can simply pull the Zodiac (inflated) to our cabin using a Rokon that I have on the property, store it overnight, and then the next day haul it down to the Creek to use that day. It avoids having to inflate, and deflate the Zodiac. This inflating and deflating the Zodiac sounds like a simple process but this process took a lot of time and effort—with the Beachmaster boat wheels all of that hassle is avoided.
I really like your product and am installing on another Zodiac that I have on another cabin that we have about 30 miles from our Wheeler Creek property.
