"What Is The BEST Inflatable Boat To Buy?"



That is a question I have asked as well.

When I first decided to buy an inflatable boat, I knew almost nothing about them.

I bought a 30 year old Zodiac from our neighbor for cheap, and a nice new 20hp motor. my inflatable boat in paradise

It was great! The kids loved it! Camping, fishing, tubing, exploring...... the possibilities were limitless!

On closer inspection a few seams were coming apart, the material around the transom was peeling off, and shoe goo sealed up a few holes..... but it held air!

We all dreamed of great adventures!

Then a friend told me a story about what happened to him in an old inflatable while boating with his wife one day.

I realized I needed to learn more about inflatables.

So began my passion for inflatable boats.

What is the best boat to buy?

There is no single "best boat" but there may be a "best boat for you". You need to know a few things like .....

  • what types of inflatables are available?

  • what materials are inflatable boats made of .... and which ones are better?

  • how can you tell a good brand from a poor quality brand?

  • what to look for if buying used (things the used boat seller doesn't want you to know, and might not know themselves!)

  • what accessories do you want for your inflatable (the must haves and the can't be with outs)

  • how to customize your boat for your needs (ideas, tips and cautions)

  • how to haul your inflatable on a trailer.

So many places to explore by inflatable boat

I could go on and on about the benefits of inflatables!

Safe, fun, portable, durable, economical to operate, the four wheel drive of the sea!

Don't run out and buy one yet. Slow down.....

.....not all inflatables are created equal. These boats range from very durable to very fragile. You don’t want to be stuck with one that is not going to do what you want it to do.

So take some time to learn about what to look for and what to avoid.

I wish I had! It would have saved us a lot of time and money!.

You want a safe and enjoyable experience with your boat.

Motor through some of these pages and gather information to help you make an informed boat purchase decision.

Most information on the web and from dealers is slanted toward the boat brands they sell. There seems to be very little information to simply help people make a smart choice when buying an inflatable boat.

I want to change that.

So go ahead, cruise through this site, and happy fishing:)
