Product Description

Combining performance that approaches that of a rigid-floored sportboat, with the lighter weight of an inflatable floor, these versatile boats are lighter, faster to plane, consume less power, and absorb waves and wakes more effectively than comparable rigid floor models. The weight capacity has almost doubled from prior models and is now the best in class.

Their high-pressure roll-up floor features multiple cross layers of copolymer fabric, with thousands of drop stiches per inch, to deliver the rigidity to enable you to plane, yet still offer the easy setup and compact storage of an inflatable boat. Easy-care, German Heytex fabric, USA-made Halkey-Roberts valves, marine-grade plywood transom and a sturdy wooden bench seat round out the standard features of these boats. Includes aluminum oars, oarlocks, lifelines, towing rings, bow handle, inflation pump, carry bag and repair kit.

Comments about 2013 HP 275 High Pressure Inflatable Floor Rollup Sportboat:

After 1 year the West Marine Labels broke down and got very sticky. The goo is so bad that it ruined a cover and requires solvent to get it off your hands. Zodiac, the manufacturer, said the labels are "additions" and only have a 1 yr warrantee. Also, the boat was purchased with a motor from west marine but the two together cavatate so much that you can't go much above an idle. Also the rubber on the has also broken down so you can hold them. In addition to these problems warrantee service is hard to get. My local dealers won't service West marine products and are openly hostile to West Marine selling boats that they don't themselves service. My advice, avoid this product

Very Stable little dingy

By CT

from North Palm Beach Fl.

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Stable

Cons

  • None yet

Best Uses

  • Short runs

Comments about 2013 HP 275 High Pressure Inflatable Floor Rollup Sportboat:

I found the HP floor to make the boat very stable as compared to a hard surface floor. The 16 inch tubes make the 5 foot beam very stable also. We just use the boat for short runs from shore to local sand bars to party..Two adults and a dog are about all you have room for but that is perfect for our use. After a month of heavy use she is holding up well. The foot pump got replaced by a 12 volt compressor after the first use. It took us 45 minutes to pump up all five chambers with the foot pump and it wore us out..GET A 12 VOLT COMPRESSOR.

We put a 5HP Lehr on her and it handles very well...we are not concerned with speed, just running around in mostly idle zones. I love the fact that one man can pick-up the HP-275 and carry it to the car on your back.

Carrying bag of little use

    • Carrying Bag Of Little Us

    Best Uses

      Comments about 2013 HP 275 High Pressure Inflatable Floor Rollup Sportboat:

      Recently ordered an HP 275 finding not the advertised 4-flap bag but a zippered bag made for a much larger inflatable. The boat does not neatly tuck in and the entire package must be rope wrapped. DO NOT ORDER THIS PRODUCT UNLESS YOU DO NOT INTEND TO USE THE CARRYING BAG!
