Inflatable Dinghy Guide

Air Deck Inflatable Dinghies

Air deck inflatable dinghies, also known as air floor inflatable dinghies, are a type of inflatable dinghy that contains an inflatable floor consisting of a high-pressure air chamber. The air deck replaces the traditional rigid slatted floor found in many dinghies. Thanks to their V Keels, air deck dinghies are often combined with an electric outboard motor or petrol outboard from brands such as Mariner outboards.

Air Deck Dinghy Key Features:

Comfort and Shock Absorption:
The air-filled floor of an air deck dinghy offers cushioning and shock absorption, providing a more comfortable ride. The air chambers absorb impact and vibrations, making the dinghy more forgiving in rough or choppy waters.

The air deck consists of air chambers that are inflated to create a stable and buoyant floor. The chambers are typically made of durable PVC or Hypalon material and are designed to withstand the pressures and stresses encountered during boating activities.

Lightweight and Portable:
Air deck inflatable dinghies are lightweight compared to their slatted floor counterparts. This makes them highly portable and easy to transport. When deflated, they can be folded into a compact size, allowing for convenient storage and transportation.

Quick and Easy Setup:
Setting up an air deck inflatable dinghy is generally straightforward. The inflatable floor can be quickly inflated using a pump, and once inflated, it provides a stable platform for boating activities. This ease of setup is especially advantageous for those who frequently assemble and disassemble their dinghies.

Air deck inflatable dinghies are versatile and suitable for various boating activities. They can be used for leisurely cruising, fishing, transportation to and from a larger vessel, or as tender boats. Their lightweight and portable nature make them convenient for use in different water conditions.

Storage and Weight Capacity:
Air deck dinghies often feature storage compartments or bags for stowing gear and equipment. The weight capacity varies depending on the size and model of the dinghy, so it's important to choose a dinghy that can accommodate the intended load.

Air deck inflatable dinghies are popular among recreational boaters, particularly those who prioritize ease of setup, portability, and comfort. However, it's important to consider factors such as stability, durability, and the specific requirements of your boating activities when choosing an inflatable dinghy.

The dinghy is made from a robust 1100 Decitex 900g PVC fabric which offers exceptional strength and durability. There are also eight grab handles (four on each side) which not only help transport the dinghy to and from the water, but provide a secure point to hold onto whilst travelling, and can even help should someone fall overboard.

Included with the Seago dinghy is an adjustable seat with integrated storage bag, a repair kit, foot pump and aluminium oars.
