16' Heavy-Duty, Extra Large Inflatable KaBoat™
SK487XL KaBoats are designed to support more gear and provide more space than other 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.

"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..."
"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!"

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.
