16' Heavy-Duty, Extra Large Inflatable KaBoat™
New Military-styled Special Ops edition of black SK487XL is now in stock!
Extra large, 16" diameter oversized tubes and an extra wide interior make the SK487XL KaBoat perfect for law enforcement, special military operations under cover of darkness, or expedition along an unexplored coast.
This model is also great for remote island explorations, fun day on a water with a family, or just simple fishing on a weekend with friends.

Quick Tip: If you are worried about the air floor being accidentally punctured by sharp gear or fishing hooks, you can get a piece of vinyl flooring from a local hardware store that can be cut out to fit inside the KaBoat over the floor.
