Dinghies are small boats, (inflatables, rowboats, sailboats, etc.), that can be carried or towed by larger vessels such as houseboats, cruisers or motor yachts. Dinghies are used when the mother ship cannot venture into the shallows or in ports where it can be difficult to maneuver a larger vessel. They also make good companion boats for camping trips or for fishing smaller waters.

Most modern dinghies have either a rigid hull, made of fiberglass, aluminum, or marine plywood or an inflatable hull made from rugged, coated fabrics. Oars and small outboard engines are the principle methods of propulsion.
