Model # 14272447 | Mfg # P-HP-310 HP FL
In stock online.

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.

Never again.

Comments about West Marine PHP-310 Performance Air Floor Inflatable Boat:

Bought it new 21/2 years ago. Bottom seams delaminated. Floor seams delaminated. Also one pontoon began leaking. Warranty wasn't honored because it was purchased on a commercial account.

Excellent boat but several shortcomings regarding accesories

By world cruiser

from home port, Detroit

Verified Reviewer

Comments about West Marine PHP-310 Performance Air Floor Inflatable Boat:

The boat itself is five stars, but the included accessories (or lack thereof) deserve three stars, hence my four star rating. Boat holds air, only requiring top off once a month. Very stable boarding from dock or transom and HP floor is extremely firm. Good oars and oar locks for rowing. Well designed spring loaded air fill valves. Planes with one 225 lb person and six HP. Eight would be perfect, ten too much. Now the downsides. Very poor instructions, not specific to boat. While the air valves themselves are excellent, they arrive from the factory in a locked open position so after first pumping it up, the air escapes. Would have been good to note in the instructions to close the valves first. Life line splices are very poor, three tucks in slippery (polypropylene?) which can easily pull out when moderate load applied. Foot pump only has two pressure settings, although the boat requires three different pressures ... only after purchase do you discover this. My previous WM HP floor came with a three pressure foot pump. I feel somewhat cheated, shame on you WM. WM cheaped out on the little details, but if you accept this, the boat itself is very good.

Great little boat

By Female Senior Citizen

from Northern Virginia

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Easy to store
  • Great With Electric Motor
  • Sturdy Carry Bag
  • Versatile
  • Very stable

Cons

  • 10hp Motor Too Heavy
  • Easily punctured

Best Uses

  • Lakes
  • Rivers
  • Tidal Waters

Comments about West Marine PHP-310 Performance Air Floor Inflatable Boat:

Great for boaters who can't tow a boat trailer or who have limited storage space. Easy to inflate & deflate, especially with an electric pump with a pressure gauge. I do not recommend a 10HP motor because it is way too heavy and overpowers the boat, 6HP is perfect. The hull material is easily punctured by splinters on docks and wood pilings, and I already had to patch it (had no problem patching it though). I am not 100% sold on the inflatable floor: it does make the boat lighter, easier to set up and everything fits into the bag, but there is always a lengthwise ridge along the middle, no matter how much I inflate the floor and deflate the keel. I used to have a boat with a wooden floor which required separate storage for the boards and repainting/varnishing of the boards after several years of use. All in all, I think this is a great boat for 1 or 2 people.

So Far So Good

By Ricardo

from Victoria, Canada

Pros

  • Compact
  • Fits Well In Bag Provided
  • Light Weight
  • Stows well
  • Tie On Point On Transom

Cons

  • Poor Bracket On Foot Pump

Best Uses

  • Protected Waters

Comments about West Marine PHP-310 Performance Air Floor Inflatable Boat:

We chose this dinghy to be able to quickly and easily deflate it, roll it up and stow it under our boom: we have no davits and want to keep the foredeck clear for sailing with our cutter-rigged sloop. The dinghy is priced reasonably. For getting from anchorage to dock or beach it is fine. Even with small dinghy wheels added to the transom it deflates to a small enough size to easily fit in the large bag provided for storage.

Fun in the Sun

By Teemo

from Harrison Twp, MI

Pros

  • Raise Bow Blocks Spray
  • Roomy Boat
  • Very stable ride

Cons

  • Fill Valves Leak
  • On Docks And Sea Walls
  • Tube Fabric Rips Easily

Best Uses

  • Great for short trips

Comments about West Marine PHP-310 Performance Air Floor Inflatable Boat:

I use this boat as dingy for my cruiser. I also make short trips with friends to my favorite swimming spots and restaurants on the water.

The boat is 5 years old and the inflation valves installation seals are beginning to leak.
Also, the hull material is easily punctured by splinters on docks and wood pilings. It is also easily ripped by pointed metal fittings on docks and sea walls. I would recommend this boat to friends if the hull material was stronger

  • Exploring
  • Fishing Careful W Hooks

Comments about West Marine PHP-310 Performance Air Floor Inflatable Boat:

I use it to take my kids exploring the Mystic River and lakes in the north suburban Boston area.
I bought it from West Marine in September of 2008, and she's still going strong.

GREAT product. I have a Torqeedo Travel for light trips when we go north. The 10 HP Merc is for speeding off steam- hits 20 mph on the lake. Kiddos think we have a speedboat. You cannot go wrong with this. It's like the Mrs. Treat her well and she'll stay with you and keep you happy. :)

GET ONE! YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

Good until you have a tear

By Boater

from Falmouth, MA

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Very reliable

Cons

  • Impossible To Fix A Tear
  • Tear Repair Kit Useless

Best Uses

  • Anywhere you want

Comments about West Marine PHP-310 Performance Air Floor Inflatable Boat:

This boat worked perfectly well and I was satisfied with it until:
It got a tear about 2 inches long due to contact with a metal part of the dock. I tried to repair it multiple times with the provided patch kit, it does stick well, but when I inflate the boat the air will still leak, finally I gave up and the boat sits unused.
