Incredibly sturdy inflatable boat that is ideal for fast moving rivers. This boat is ideal for folks looking to work in the tailraces of dams or on larger rivers with moving water.

The Cataraft is an innovative design using two inflatable pontoons. This allows the vessel to operate in fast running water like the tailraces of dams or fast moving rivers. It’s also outfitted with top of the line Smith-Root equipment for safety and ease of use.
