⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ K***** V***** ✔️

I bought this Zodiac and run it with a 9.9, 4 stroke Suzuki motor. I am a big man, weighting 210 lbs. The boat planes easily within 10 seconds when riding solo and with an additional 220lbs, will plane in 15- 20 seconds- with some adjustment to the trim, probably faster. Keep in mind, the motor itself is 100lbs. Now, for lighter people, the boat will likely plane with a 6-8 hp outboard (see if you can get a used 2 stroke- they are very light and power to weight ratio is terrific as compared to a 4 stroke). Once on a plane, the boat zips at 30-40 mph- it is a fantastic experience. It is also very easy to transport deflated. I can transport it in the trunk of my subcompact. Setup takes about 20 minutes.

Verified buyer

120 years of experience and inventor of the inflatable boat, Zodiac Nautic offers products with exceptional resistance and reliability thanks to the materials and processes that are always at the cutting edge of technology.


Its internal structure in rot-resistant polyester and built with a spar and floors network, guarantees a single-block linking the hull and the deck. This process brings rigidity, favorable to performance and resistance to impact endured while navigating, in all types of loading conditions.


Zodiac Nautic developed a unique industrial process to assemble its buoyancy tubes: thermobonding. This process consists of welding the pieces of Strongan™ material together to offer a perfect material that is both waterproof and durable, almost indestructible. Zodiac Nautic is the only manufacturer to master the welding of all structuring materials of an inflatable boat, thus guaranteeing exceptional longevity and security.


Zodiac Nautic selects with care the materials that build your boats. We follow strict specifications when selecting materials. Zodiac Nautic subjects its new boats to a multitude of tests to ensure safety, stability, comfort, and longevity. Your Zodiac boat will accompany you everywhere for many years to come.
