A Larger Payload Capacity
The Zoom by Zodiac 350S Solid Floor inflatable boat features an easy to assemble marine plywood floor and two aluminum stringers for maximum stability and payload capacity. Should you plan to moor or tie up your dinghy most of the time, this solid floor model makes the most sense. The combination of the hard floor, cone-shaped ends on the bow, and the inflatable V-shaped keel will result in rapid planing abilities and better maneuverability on the water.
Other features on the Zodiac 350S include an engine support plate, bow handle, 2 carry handles, all-round ribbed rubbing strake, 2 stainless steel towing rings, and a safety line. The tube material is a Duotex™ 1100 Decitex fabric which is puncture and abrasion resistant. The air chambers are filled via Bravo-type semi-recessed valves.
According to current owners, most feel that the payload and capacity is a bit overstated. To be comfortable (and safe), they recommend only 2 or 3 adults should be onboard, especially if you hope to achieve optimum planing abilities with a 15 hp motor.
What We Say
At $1,570, the Zoom by Zodiac 350S Solid Floor inflatable boat is a good choice carrying diving gear where stability and the ability to handle a larger payload are required. The inflatable v-shaped hull provides for better speed while the large tube buoyancy provides increased stability. The 350S has the same outstanding features and workmanship as you’ll find on the higher priced Cadet series, but the Zooms are designed to be the perfect match of affordability with quality features.
