Inflatable Boat Comparison Charts – Compare Boat & Kayak Brands, Models
What should you know about boats before buying one? Our inflatable boat comparison charts make narrowing your choices easy. With a quick navigation feature, you can find styles, lengths, and price at a glance, and follow a link to read a review.
How They Are Presented
The inflatable boat comparison charts are in two general categories: Boats and Kayaks. When you find a boat or kayak in your price range, click on the model’s link to read the review.
What the Charts Show
Where we compare inflatable boats (kayaks, catamarans) head-to-head on our charts, we list on each model:
- Our rating of the boat (from 1 to 5 stars)
- Starting Price in US$
- Weight of boat/kayak (deflated)
- Maximum wt. capacity
- Engine capacity
- Speed estimate (motorized boats)
- Hull material
- Floor material
- No. of air chambers
- Type of valves used
- Inflation/assembly time
- Trial Period (if any)
Once you have found a boat you would like to learn more about, click on the link and go to the model review page. There you will find a description of the boat, weight, capacity in weight and number of persons, dimensions inflated/deflated, water ratings (class I-V whitewater if applicable), assembly time, package details, sales price and discount offers.
Note: We make every attempt to list the current best price, but they are subject to change.
The Brands We Review
There are too many companies that sell inflatable boats in North America to review or list all of them on our inflatable boat comparison charts, so we have chosen to review only the best-quality, top-selling boats and manufacturers.
- For Sports Boats, Runabouts, Tenders, and Dinghies, we review models made by Aqualine, Intex, Outcast, Sea Eagle, and Sevylor.
For Motormount Boats, the brands include Saturn, Sea Eagle, and Zodiac.
- For Pontoon Boats and Catamarans, we compare and review Sea Eagle models.
- For Kayaks, we review models from Advanced Elements, Aire, Innova, Intex, Sea Eagle, Sevylor, Stearns, and Walker Bay.
- For Sail Boats, Sailing Catamarans, and Multi-Purpose Inflatable Boats, we review Sea Eagle models.
Where to Start
Selecting an inflatable boat is a matter of determining what you will be using the boat for, or at least, what you will use it for most of the time. For example, if you camp and plan to be going down Class III-IV rapids, you are better off with an inflatable kayak. If you are buying a boat primarily for lake fishing, read reviews on pontoon boats and catamarans. For a yacht tender, compare the dinghies or perhaps the Sport Runabouts. For all-around general use requiring boats with heavier motors, we recommend you start with the Motormount boats or Sport Runabouts lists. We hope our inflatable boat comparison charts are of great help to you in your research.
