About the Sea Eagle Sport Runabouts Series
If you are looking to buy a Top Quality Inflatable Boat look no further than Sea Eagle Inflatable Boats. The overriding advantage of the range of Sea Eagle inflatable boats is their lightweight to size ratio. This increases stow-ability and reduces overall hull weight by nearly 25% with the inflatable drop stitch floors while reducing storage footprint by 50% because you no longer have to deal with wooden or aluminum floorboards. This makes these boats truly practical as a tender, to carry in a RV or SUV or even simply stow below deck.
These tough, rugged inflatable boats feature your choice of high pressure rigid inflatable drop stitch floors – making them lighter, easier to setup, less expensive to motor and far more portable. While the rigid molded plastic floorboards are virtually unbreakable.
Sport Runabouts are great all around boats for fishing, scuba diving or just plain running about
Key Features of Sea Eagle Rescue14 Orange Inflatable Rescue & Sport Boat
Seaworthy In All Conditions
Sea Eagle have been manufacturing Sea Eagle Sport Runabouts since 1997 during which period they have been proved in all manner of conditions around the world. They have been taken around 300 mile trips around Long Island and multiple times in seas varying from flat calm to 10ft – 12ft swell in violent thunder storms. Outside of the US they’ve been used on the Yangtze River, China and on the Indian continent for fire and flood rescue work.
Patented Outside Drop Stitch Inflatable Keel
The Sea Eagle’s outside drop stitch inflatable keel provides several unique performance benefits. Firstly, it creates the ability to turn sharply and precisely in any direction. This is a true benefit when coming to a dock or motoring in crowded harbors. The inflatable drop stitch keel also provides extra buoyancy at the bow end allowing the boat to ride over waves rather than ploughing through waves. This same feature in combination with large rear rounded tubes helps these transom boats get planing much quicker. Unlike other transom boats with an inside inflatable keel the overall performance of the Sea Eagle transom boats are far more precise, responsive, and stable in all sea conditions.
Molded Plastic Floorboards or Rigid High Pressure Inflatable Drop Stitch Floor
Sea Eagle offer two kinds of floorboards for the Sea Eagle Sport Runabouts each provide unique benefits. The molded plastic floorboards are virtually unbreakable and will not be harmed by the sun, saltwater or other chemicals while provide tremendous structural strength for motoring and standing ability for anglers and yachtsmen.
Sea Eagle’s high pressure rigid inflatable drop stitch floors provide excellent rigidity and very good structural strength at a fraction of the weight. If you opt for the drop stitch floor there is a considerable weight saving. This is very important if you are a yacht owner looking for a super lightweight and easy to handle inflatable tender. This same feature is equally important to motorhome owners, fishermen and recreational boaters who want less weight and faster set up times.
