The 12 ft. 6 inch long Sport Runabout is a mid-sized inflatable sport boat with plenty of room. Large enough to be considered a serious transom boat yet light enough to be placed inside or on top of an average vehicle. Best of all there's no trailer required.
The rounded bow shape increases cargo space, buoyancy, fuel economy and makes for a softer ride.
The inflatable Drop Stitch Floor Package keeps the overall hull weight at just 108 lbs. verses 147 lbs. with plastic floorboards. That's over 25% lighter while still able to carry up to 6 adults or 1600 lbs.

UNBELIEVABLY Rugged: HIGH-PRESSURE FABRIC FOR OUR HIGH-PERFORMANCE BOATS
We use high-pressure fabric for our high-performance Explorer Kayaks, FastTrack Kayaks, PaddleSkis, Frameless Pontoon Boat, FoldCats, SailCat, Yacht Tender, and Sport Runabouts. The 1,000 denier woven base cloth gives tremendous strength and the PVC coating on both sides creates a waterproof, air-tight seal.
The triple-layer POWER of 1,000 Denier, Reinforced, High-Pressure Fabric:
Tough-as-nails Supported Fabric – Our tightly-woven base cloth is coated with several layers of a special polymer then fed through rollers under great pressure to force the coatings into the fabric creating a solid, waterproof, very tough material.
Omnidirectional Strength – Our high-performance boats can endure severe impact with sharp objects without puncturing. The fabric isn’t just tough; it has equal tear-resistance in all directions.
Quadruple Overlap Seams – We overlap all main seams with an additional layer of material above AND below for a total of 4 layers. At 36 mil each, the 4 layers together are nearly 144 mil thick — thicker than most other inflatables.
Long life additives – Our 1,000 denier high performance fabric is formulated with special additives to guarantee long term resistance to ultraviolet (UV) rays, gasoline, oil, and other chemicals.
I'm so freakin' happy with my 12.6SR that if could be a sales man for you, I would! I put it in my 1999 2-door Grand Am with the back seat out for transporting it, and I'm out there, enjoying it...even if it's cold. This sunday I went out again and had a fantastic day - I stayed out there over 7 hrs.
