Designed to Make Your Life Easier

Life’s a beach when you choose practical, well-designed products that are made with the customer in mind. At Island Inflatables, we pride ourselves on designing inflatable boats that not only function flawlessly, but allow for an easy and comfortable ride. Summer is a time for rest and relaxation, so why should your summer activities be any different?

The Island (Super-Light) SL230 has a sleek appearance with a versatile white and grey colour scheme that suits all manner of tastes. Along with looks, there are many elements of our design that take comfort into account. We make sure our tubes are oversized, providing a comfortable space to sit. With large tubes, you can expect a drier and generally nicer ride. We’ve also placed the safety rope to the side of the tube rather than the top, so you can sit on the tubes without being bothered by an uncomfortable rope.

Our design also features Internal Rear Carry Handles. This unique aspect of our design was the first feature we came up with and is something of which we are especially proud. We realised that placing the handles on the outside rear tubes makes it impossible for a single person to carry the boat. It was also noted that these handles are made from a hard material that can easily scratch your cruiser or yacht. The solution was simple but effective: we moved the handles from the outside of the rear tubes to the inside.

Heavy Duty to Withstand Wear and Tear

Only the best-quality materials are used to make Island Inflatables products. Our boats are built with the toughest grade of PVC material possible before getting into the commercial grades. The rigid base of the boat is a lightweight but durable single skin aluminium floor. We also fit our boats with large, heavy-duty stainless steel tow rings that are mounted on a reinforced mounting patch.

Non-marking rubbing/wear strips are placed around the side of the boat and under the keel, while each of the oversized tubes are protected with a second layer of PVC material. Finally, Island Inflatables boats use the latest “High Frequency Thermo Welding” (HFTW) techniques on all seams, ensuring they won’t come apart in the face of harsh, hot weather conditions. The over-inflation valve fitted to all our boats will also help with hot days and increased air pressure.
