So it's mid may and you and the family are heading off on a road trip, camping, caravanning etc. And you need an inflatable boat. Where do you start? Well, the internet is a good start.
The first place you should start is to find your nearest knowledgeable fire boat dealer. That way you can peruse his clothes, get some excellent advice on what exactly you need, and maybe cut your search time in half.
Now there are a myriad different inflatable boat deals out there from seemingly hundreds of manufacturers. The list is endless. You will be well advised to stick to either a well known brand. With one of these you know that you are buying as good as it gets.
Canadian built boats are some of the best in the world, of the brands that we have experience with, the best of the bunch is the Canadian built inflatable boat. They are hand built by a company who has been manufacturing inflatables for 20 years, the fabric is highest quality German stuff called Valmex, which is completely UV resistant and every bit as abrasion resistant as hypalon.
The fittings are all Italian, so you wont have oar locks falling off and D rings rusting after the first outing! But most importantly they are made by people who know how to build a boat.
In conclusion, make sure, if you can't see and feel the inflatable boat you are thinking of buying, don't buy it unless you know the name!
