Designed for Speed
With an engine capacity of up to 15hp, the Sea Eagle 10.6 SR RIK Sport Runabout is not only zippy on the water, it is designed to set up and launch in a matter of minutes. It’s lightweight and no-frills, yet has several advanced navigational design features that you won’t find on cheap inflatable sports boats.
The 6" rigid inflatable keel makes this a fun little speedboat. The RIK allows for good stability when at rest or planing, and assists the boat to respond quickly to direction changes, either with a tiller or with the optional Steering System
that can be hooked up to any outboard motor. The large 15.5" pontoon tubes provide for buoyancy and greater overall rigidity, and are round in shape at the rear to assist in rapid planing. When you throttle up, they keep the bow down to get the boat on a plane as fast as possible.
The Sea Eagle 10.6 SR RIK features a high-pressure drop stitch floor that is made up of a thick weave of short threads. Inflated to 7 psi, the floor is incredibly lightweight yet is extremely firm to stand on, and it will hold up for years against direct sunlight, high heat, salt water, gasoline, and engine oil.
The unique design of this Sport Runabout allows the craft to be rolled up and stored with the floor system still inside the boat. It sets up in about 10 minutes, or half the time of the 10.6 SR model (which comes with Polyethelene floorboards). To set up the runabout, simply unfold, pump up the air chambers, and attach the seat and motor. Load your gear and you’ll be in the water in a matter of minutes, while traditional boaters are queued up for an hour waiting for their turn to launch at the boat ramp.
This little boat is a snap for two people to carry, or one person can handle it by using the bow lift handle and dolly wheels to roll it to the water’s edge. The Sea Eagle 10.6 SR RIK Sport Runabout is well-priced for what you get and will give you years of rugged use. This is a great package when matched with a 15 hp outboard.
