16' Heavy-Duty, Extra Large Inflatable KaBoat

Customer's video of Black KaBoat Double click on video to watch in full screen.
SK487XL Extra Large KaBoats are designed to support more gear and provide more space than other smaller KaBoat models.

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.

This new SK487XL model has 4 separate air chambers for extra safety, compared to 2 standard chambers of regular KaBoats. Extra heavy-duty rub strake protectors are installed along both sides of the tubes for enhanced durability and rigidity.

SK487 KaBoats come with 2 sets of oarlocks and 2 sets of rowing oars for fast tandem rowing. With a 15HP 2-stroke outboard motor, this KaBoat was riding scary fast! The SK487XL handles sharp turns great and holds large waves without a problem.

 

New KaBoat model V2.0 is now in stock.

  • Transoms now have triangular splash guards to minimize back splash and protect the transom holders from heat and exposure to UV rays.
  • Bulky plastic handles on end tubes were replaced with sun resistant and durable soft handles for longer life span.
  • The valves were moved to the inside of the tubes and under the seat to protect them from sun and the elements, and to make inflation from inside the boat easier when on the water.
  • New models have different bench attachments to make them shorter, lighter and move slightly lower for easier rowing.
  • Grommet PVC splash guards with safety grab lines run all along the KaBoat's tubes from the front to the rear. Having grommets on PVC lines allows the attachment of additional accessories, kayak seats and custom made frames and arches for rod holders, night lights, etc.

Recent Customer Reviews of KaBoat SK487XL

"I purchased the 16’ Kaboat (SK487XL) in May of 2012. To date (Oct. 2015), I have successfully used it in various types of water, conditions and locations on the East Coast (Maine Atlantic Ocean, Chesapeake Bay, Delaware River, NJ Back Bays and various lakes in PA). Depending on the propulsion regulations, I typically use either a 9.8hp 4-stroke outboard or a 40lb 12v trolling motor. The 9.8 hp outboard easily pushes the Kaboat with my family of four at a comfortable cruising speed. Likewise, the electric trolling motor is a perfect companion for smaller lakes with engine restrictions. The Kaboat has handled well in open-ocean and bays with moderate rollers and moderate chop and has easily handled river rafting through class I/II rapids. The stability of the Kaboat has kept my family and I confident during our boating adventures. The durability of the PVC has proven itself as the Kaboat has been run across all different types of abusive surfaces during normal use and doesn’t show any more than a few minor surface scratches. Wherever I go with the Kaboat, it draws attention and questions from on-lookers. My family & I enjoy our Kaboat and look forward to many more years of reliable service. YouTube Video here" Steve P.

Inflatable KaBoat Military Style. Special Ops Edition. Click to zoom in."I have to say I love our new 16' Kaboat, we have had it out a few times and it's perfect, folds up and fits in the back of my Mini Cooper,  Easy setup takes 10 minutes with a low volume  electric air pump, finishing off with the supplied hand pump. For a family boat to take camping for river or lake excursions here in Oregon it's perfect, mind you I have already poked a hole in the air floor (fishing with kids) but it was a quick and easy repair.  I was using a 15hp engine but it was overpowered and went to a 50 LB thrust electric, more than enough power to zip you about a river and lasts all day as the boat is so light to push.. Great job Boats to go..." L.B. Oregon

"Purchased the 16Ft SK487 in July 2012. Have used it for several multi day camping trips in large mountain lakes and the Columbia River in Washington state. With my 8HP four stroke and two people top speed is 22 MPH per my GPS. I have owned several inflatables, for the money this inflatable represents tremendous value. With the floor removed and deflated I can easily by myself transport between storage in the garage and into the back of my Explorer. With this boat I can carry four people without gear, or two people and camping gear for week long trips. I built my own sun top for about $35.00 using PVC pipe and a 5x7’ tarp. Would buy this again, positively great value for the money, I can afford most any boat I desire, but hate paying monthly storage fees and waiting in long launch lines. I purchased this boat to escape the crowds, for this purpose it is perfect, love it!" Lee, Washington

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.
