Smooth curved bow and stern profiles on this highly maneuverable cataraft cut the water more like a hard hull and gives better handling characteristics. Made of Maravia’s tough Class VI material, coated with durable urethane, and a full 10-year warranty.
The 18′ will comfortably haul four with gear (1,374 lbs.). Load capacities are calculated with a quarter of the tube under the water. Lighter loads will make them handle better; with heavy loads over the rated capacities these catarafts, like all others, will be sluggish. Color choices are royal blue, yellow, red, orange, emerald, purple, and teal, with “2 Cool Color” options of yellow on one end changing to red at the other, yellow to teal, or blue to purple available for $600 extra.
