Why an Inflatable Boat?
Stability - Inflatable boats have several advantages over the conventional solid hull type boats. One of the main features is their stability. Because of their inflated tubes, they are almost impossible to overturn or to sink. They sit flat on the water’s surface and flex with the water movement. Because of their incredible buoyancy they are able to carry heavier loads safely.
Stowability - Inflatable boats offer the ease of stowability. An 8 foot inflatable can easily be stored in a two foot by three foot bag, weighing about 80 pounds. Because of its storable size, it is easy to store your inflatable in a locker area of your boat, below deck or at home in your garage, shed or closet. They are ideal for taking them along when camping next to a lake or river.
Performance – The development of inflatables have come a long way. Current designs offer greater lift and stability, creating less drag on the water. This technology requires less power and greater speeds to safely reach your destination in less time. They are highly maneuverable, making it easy to maneuver tight dock areas or landing on virtually any shore line.

V-Hull – This type of boat has either an inflated long tub or a wood keel, which is located beneath the floorboard, and allows the boat to slice through the water.
Rigid-Hull – These inflatables come with a fiberglass hull which is mated to an inflatable collar, allowing a deep V-hull shape at the bow and then flattening toward the aft of the boat. You get the buoyancy of an inflatable, coupled with the handling aspects of a conventional
