Sunset Cruises: A sunset cruise is a beautiful way to end the day. The colours of the sunset reflecting off the water can be stunning, and the tranquility of the water is the perfect place to unwind. You can even bring a bottle of wine and some snacks to enjoy while watching the sunset.
Picnic on a sandbar: A sandbar is a perfect place to anchor your boat and enjoy a picnic. You can pack a lunch or bring a grill and cook up some burgers and hot dogs. Make sure to bring plenty of water and sunscreen, and don't forget to clean up after yourself!
Party on a boat: Boats are great venues for parties. You can decorate the boat, bring music, and even hire a caterer to provide food and drinks. Whether it's a birthday party, bachelor/bachelorette party, or just a fun get-together, a boat party is a unique way to celebrate.
Visit waterfront restaurants: Many waterfront restaurants have boat docks, so you can park your boat and enjoy a delicious meal. It's a great way to explore new restaurants and enjoy the beauty of the water at the same time.
Watch wildlife: Many bodies of water are home to various types of wildlife, including dolphins, whales, seals, and birds. Take your boat to areas where you can spot wildlife and enjoy watching them in their natural habitat. Just be sure to keep a safe distance so as not to disturb them.
Explore Historic Sites: Many historic sites and landmarks are located along the waterways. You can explore these sites from a unique perspective by taking your boat. Learn about the history and significance of these sites while enjoying the beauty of the water. Just be sure to follow any rules or guidelines in place for visiting these sites by boat.
BOATS For the Summer
High quality, high performance boats since 2018
Being avid boaters & having years of industry experience, we know what makes the perfect inflatable boat. We created Great Lakes boats to provide a premium choice. Every boat is made with top quality materials, smart design for improved experiences and extra safety features you will love, and all at a fair price.
An inflatable boat is a lightweight boat constructed with its sides and bow made of flexible tubes containing pressurised gas. For smaller boats, the floor and hull is often flexible, while for boats longer than 3 metres (9.8 ft), the floor typically consists of three to five rigid plywoodor aluminium sheets fixed between the tubes, but not joined rigidly together. Often the transom is rigid, providing a location and structure for mounting an outboard motor.
Some inflatable boats can be disassembled and packed into a small volume, so that they can be easily stored and transported. The boat, when inflated, is kept rigid cross-ways by a foldable removable thwart. This feature makes these boats suitable for liferafts for larger boats or aircraft, and for travel or recreational purposes.
INFLATABLE BOATS SUPERIOR MATERIALS & DESIGN
Our inflatable boat tubes are constructed with the world-leading Mahler Industries PVC in Germany and Achilles Hypalon from Japan
We use double-welded reinforced seams on all our inflatable boat tubes, ensuring a long and durable life.
Our marine-grade aluminum is powder coated and baked at 390°F to ensure a long-lasting durable finish.
Our inflatable boats have fully aluminum floorboards/hull and aluminum transoms so you never need to worry about rot.
Before leaving the factory, each Great Lakes Inflatable Boat meets quality standards to ensure customer satisfaction.
Contemporary inflatable boats are manufactured using supported fabric. They are made of rubberized synthetic fabrics, PVC and polyurethane, providing light-weight and airtight sponsons. Depending on fabric choice, the fabric panels are assembled using either hot or cold manufacturing processes. Different styles of one-way valves are used to add or remove air, and some brands include inter-communicating valves that reduce the effect of a puncture.
Inflatable boats with transoms have an inflatable keel that creates a slight V-bottom along the line of the hull to improve the hull's seakeeping and directional stability. These vessels are very light, so if powered with an engine, it is best to put weight in the bow area to keep the bow from rising while the boat is going up on plane.
People increasingly use inflatables for personal recreational use on lakes, rivers, and oceans—and for white water rafting and kayaking, and for scuba divers to reach dive sites. Users can deflate, fold, and store fabric bottom inflatable boats in compact bags, making them ideal for limited storage and quick, easy access.
Sail rigs are available for inflatable dinghies, kayaks, and catamarans. In keeping with the portability of the inflatable hull, sail attachments fold or disassemble to fit in a compact bundle. Leeboards on the sides perform the same function as a centerboard, so users can tack these boats into the wind.
