The Gumotex Palava is a 2+1 inflatable canoe which can comfortably carry two adults and a child. It is extremely tough and great when used on inland water such as rivers and lakes. The Palava can even be paddled on moving water up to Grade 2 and along sheltered coastlines.
With the hull constructed from super tough Nitrilon fabric and the seats made from laminated wood which are then bolted into metal eyelets firmly attached to the hull it is easy to see this is an inflatable built to not only last but perform reliably in a wide range of conditions.
The Palava is designed to take two adults and is supplied with two seats, however it is possible to mount an optional extra seat in the centre. This can be used by an adult to paddle the canoe solo or to carry an additional passenger. There are kneeling straps provided for moving water (the Palava can easily cope with grade 2) and plenty of tie downs for gear. Bow and stern both have substantial spray covers, a strong carry handle, bungee cords for gear and a safety grab line.
The Palava is a true multi use craft. Its perfectly at home on flat water rivers and lakes with its low freeboard cutting through the wind and with plenty of space for gear, dogs or a picnic. If you want to get adventurous the 'kneeling straps' can be used to provide extra connectivity in a kneeling position or when seated on the plywood seats.
At the end of the day, like all Gumotex boats it packs down into the dry bag / Rucksack and goes in the back of your car ready for the next adventure! Being equiped with rucksack style straps this can also be used for portaging the Palava on your back to access 'inaccessible' waterways or to travel overland between waterways.
