An Attractive Runabout
The Newport Seascape inflatable boat is made from 0.9mm/1,100-denier triple-layered PVC and polyester, which is also the choice of tough fabric used on many brands of whitewater rafts. The oversized 18" tubes give it incredible stability and make it almost impossible to tip over while carrying any size payload up to 1,100 pounds, and the high-pressure inflatable v-hull provides great maneuverability in tight banking turns. The maximum inflation pressure is 0.25 bar for the tubes, and 0.35 bar for the keel and the air mat floor.
The advantage to buying the Seascape with the air floor is mainly convenience since it will set up and take down in minutes. This type of craft is a plus if you have only limited space for storage on your larger boat or in your RV or camper, and it is quite portable, weighing just 78 pounds. If you intent to keep your inflatable set-up for long periods of time and don’t need the advantages of an air floor, you may want to consider the heavier wood floor Newport boats, such as the 8'10" Dana or the 9'6" Del Mar.
