A self-bailing inflatable drift boat.  Yup, you read that right.  The NRS Clearwater Drifter is the first of its kind, an inflatable drift boat that is the perfect solution for fishermen who have always wanted a drift boat, but haven't had the money or the space.  The Clearwater Drifter uses drop-stitched PVC for the hull of the boat, the same technology used in inflatable stand up paddle boards, making it extremely rigid, durable and able to handle shallow water with ease.  The modular frame uses aluminum support yolks and a LoPro equipped frame.  This means it can be easily broken down, with the hull deflated and rolled for easy transport or storage.  Fits on small aircraft, jetboats or with commercial shippers like UPS or FedEx.  Even better yet, the Clearwater Drifter is self-bailing*, making it a viable option for Class II-III whitewater, like the Lower Animas, Lower Piedra, and San Juan River stretches.
  • Made of tough drop-stitch PVC material, the Clearwater inflates to a very rigid 9 psi, creating a stout 17-foot drift boat.

  • The self-bailing* inflatable drop stitch hull and 6" floor handles rocks and shallow water like a raft while tracking with the stealth of a traditional drift boat.

  • You can easily disassemble the modular frame and roll up the deflated hull for convenient transport and storage.

  • The Clearwater stows readily in a garage, car or small aircraft, or you can ship it UPS to your next fishing destination.

  • High rocker in the bow and stern shorten the waterline for superior tracking and anchoring while helping the boat ride over waves.

  • The Clearwater's three-chamber design ensures it will keep floating and rowing even if one air chamber is compromised.

  • Casting stations in the bow and stern feature swiveling angler seats, diamond plate decks and thigh hooks with stripping baskets for secure, comfortable casting in smooth or rough water.

  • A rigid transom in the stern allows you to attach a small outboard motor.

  • A padded rowing seat and adjustable foot bar ensure all-day comfort for the oarsman.

  • An integrated pulley system lets the oarsman operate the anchor from the rowing seat.

  • A heavy-duty rub rail on the gunwales protects high-wear areas.

  • 3" stainless steel D-rings at the bow provide handy tie-off points and let you winch the Clearwater onto a trailer.

  • 5 Year retail warranty, 3 year commercial.

*This boat is self-bailing up to a point. If the boat is swamped quickly enough to where the entire 6" floor and drain hole are below the waters surface, the boat's self-bailing feature will not work and the boat will have to be manually bailed until the point that the floor can regain positive buoyancy and self-bailing capabilities. Loading more than 1,000 lbs of gear and people will also eliminate the self-bailing capabilities.*
