Hi

I have been a grey nomads for 10 years and have had a roof topper, a tandem canoe and now have a crossover inflatable kayak/boat.

Mine is a Swell boat but the most common brand is Nifti Boats.  They are out of NZ but you can get them in Aus. Basically they are a long skinny inflatable tender style boat with an inflatable tube down each side and an inflatable floor.

Great little boat. Stable and dry. Light at 25-35kg depending on size and fold up into a catty bag that fits on your back seat. You can even stand and fish!

I run mine with a 24lb electric which gives me a solid walking pace speed but they will plane with a 5hp.

In my view these are the best option although no good in croc country.

Look them up on Google. A 12 ft model is around $1500 plus motor etc.

I am selling my 10ft model with elec motor and battery withn all the boats goodies, pump, bag, seats for $750 ono. It is suitable for one up to fish, crab etc or 2 up for a cruise

I have included a photo from the swell boat website. Mine is the same without the kayak seat but is blue.

Send me a pm if interested. I am located in Capalaba

Happy travels

BB

More info

It has an air floor that blows up to 14lb and becomes hard enough to easily stand up and fish if you want. Sides blow up to 5 lb each. The foot pump can be set to cut off at these pressures. Also has a slide drain bung to drain as required.

Takes less than 10 min to set up or pack up.

Comes complete with travel bag, 2xbench seats 1 of which is padded and a gear bag that gets suspended under the padded seat.
