The Floor System Options
The Zodiac Classic Series offers two floor systems: the quick-fit aluminum floorboards, or the marine grade plywood floor with aluminum frame system. The latter system is available on the Mark ST models. The newer aluminum flooring system allows for quick and easy installation and maintenance, it is a sturdy platform to cast or walk on, and provides great impact resistance for pounding over waves.
Practical, Stable, and Portable
Owners who have given reviews on the Mark inflatable sport boats say they enjoy the comfortable ride and quality of these Zodiacs. The oversized air chambers not only cut down on splash, they give the boat a low center of gravity for great stability and comfort, and provide an open cockpit for a large load capacity.
The V-shaped hull of the Classic Series allows these inflatables to achieve better than average speed and maneuverability on the water. Yet with an engine capacity up to 40hp, these lightweight Zodiacs offer better fuel economy than you would get with the same engine mounted on a hard-hulled tender.
Even with a deflated weight of a rather heavy 191 pounds (on the Mark II HD), the boats are portable; they deflate and fold down to fit into two separate carrying bags to fit easily into an RV or the trunk of a car. The Zodiac Classic Series boats are good for diving, hunting, fishing, sunbathing, and tendering. These are nice inflatable sports boats and worthy of your time to take a look at.
