All SOTAR Inflatables are designed and manufactured one at a time. No other Inflatables are made with such personal care and attention. You are a name, not a number; each employee knows your name and stands behind their workmanship.
Over the years we have vetted most of the industry engineering techniques for inflatables. What we have pioneered and championed is a material that will slip over rocks, hold up to decades of abuse, and quite possibly never require a patch. Our rafts are made from Lexatron, our 40 oz. 100% urethane material with a 3000 denier base fabric that is arguably the toughest in the industry.
How many Inflatable Kayaks have you owned in your lifetime? I know when I was a young I went through one each and every season. It wasn’t uncommon to have more patches than original material; NOT anymore! SOTAR’s meticulous engineering and design focusing on durability and performance combine to create a whitewater inflatable kayak like no other.
There's a reason why you see more SOTAR catarafts on the river than any other manufacture; our relentless pursuit for perfection. Building boats since 1980 has allowed our research and design to develop whitewater rafting cats for each and every use. Whether you're looking for a fishing vessel or an R1 to launch off waterfalls we have what you're looking for.
