Our Rafting Boats

We use "self-bailing" reinforced special production boots with high maneuverability and consisting of 7 separate sections independent from each other.

Our Rafting Boats

Rafting boats being used world-wide today are designed in accordance with Avon symmetric boat system. However, some countries have their own traditional raft designs. For example, Russians prefer rafts with double pontoons (so-called “cataraft”), while Slovenians generally use narrow rafts controlled by long wooden oars utilized only in their country.

On wide rivers having high levels of difficulty and flow rate, and during expeditions that extend over several days or even weeks, rafts that have large chambers and are controlled by the boat guide sitting at the center with the help of long “oars,” while participants mostly don’t row, are used. Besides, rafts that have small dimensions and are controlled by everybody are used on relatively narrower and technical rivers. Boats used in rafting sport may have different dimensions ranging from 3.60 to 5.80 according to the difficulty level of the river passed. Also, these boats differentiate from each other in terms of their materials. Boats are generally made of PVC, rubber, Hypalon and other special latex fabrics. The common characteristic of all is that they comprise of several layers.

We use, during our tours, custom design extra reinforced “self-bailing” Zebec boats with dimensions of 3.90 and 4.20 that have high maneuverability and consist of 7 separate independent sections. Zebec is the biggest raft manufacturer in the world and the official supplier of IRF International Rafting Federation.
