Strong and powerful like its namesake, the AIRE Lion Catarafts will make the haul with style and ease. These boats have a load capacity comparable to catarafts with 2 more feet of length, thanks to their large diameter tubes and snub noses. The Lion 14' was designed to carry lots of gear on a variety of whitewater, especially smaller, tighter rivers where boat length is a factor. The Lion 16' is an excellent choice for extended river trips where hauling equipment and sustenance (beer) is essential. This boat is incredibly stable and has a very shallow draft for low water trips. The Lion 16' carries a huge load, comparable to the 18' Leopard. The Lion 18' is the big daddy, meant for hauling huge loads for multi-week trips like the Grand Canyon.
