The Surprising Benefits of Buying an Inflatable Boat

Are you thinking about buying an inflatable boat but aren't totally convinced yet? Check out these amazing benefits of getting an inflatable boat.

Here in Australia, we love boating. In fact, 2.6 million Australians have at least 1 type of boat in their households!

Whether you've already got one or are considering purchasing your first, it's always a good idea to get on the water with a boat of your own. So if you want to buy a boat, we highly suggest an inflatable one.

So what are the benefits you can get with an inflatable boat? Read on to find out!

They're Very Light and Compact

If you enjoy kayaking, then you'll know about the pains of dragging one around with you. Inflatable kayaks will eliminate this hassle!

For example, the DFA Colorado weighs just 16 kilograms and can be rolled up so it fits right in the boot of your car, even if it's a small hatchback. Getting to and from kayaking will be so easy with an inflatable boat!

An added benefit is that these boats are more fuel-efficient. So if you buy a motored boat, you won't have to spend as much on gas.

They're Safer

Over the last 10 years, there were 115 recreational boating incidents that were fatal. Add to this non-fatal incidents and damages to boats, and there's a lot to be accounted for.

What's great is that inflatable boats are safer. They're unsinkable for the most part and because they're made of a soft material, there's significantly less risk of damaging another boat or dock when pulling up next to them.

Plus, if your passengers get tossed around in rougher conditions on the water, there will be more cushioning should they fall.

They're More Comfortable

Because the boat is made out of softer material that's more cushioned, this results in better comfort for your passengers. Not only will the material feel nice, but it'll also provide better shock absorption, meaning the ride isn't as bumpy.

You and your family will be able to enjoy hours out on the water without waking up with aches and pains the next day.

They're Affordable

Just like with boats made from other materials, there's a wide range of prices when it comes to inflatable boats. However, if you're on a tighter budget, then you'll be pleased to know that there are quite a few you can buy for under $1,000.

So if you find the above benefits amazing but were worried about prices, know that there's basically an inflatable boat for every budget out there!
