More Detailed Info
The Sea Eagle Frameless Pontoon Boat is a fantastic inflatable boat that is uniquely designed specifically for those who love the sport of fishing.
Pontoon boats have long been popular but what makes this one special is that it is frameless. This allows for it to be easily deflated, packed away into its storage bag and thrown in the trunk of a car, into an RV or even taken on an airplane.
It is the ultimate in convenience and is highly portable. This particular model was designed to either be powered with an electric or gas motor or else even paddled by hand.
It is really nice to have the option… you can use the motor to get you to remote places then simply use the oars to quietly maneuver yourself to where you need to be.
- It is highly stable. Even without a frame, the unique design of this boat allows for a very stable ride. You will have no problem standing to cast your line. There is a wooden floor board to stand-up on so there is absolutely no concerns with stability.
- It has two integrated rod holders. This is an excellent and well thought out feature that is sure to please any angler.
- It has the option of a swivel seat that allows you to turn 360 degrees as well as sit up higher. Although the standard inflatable seat that it comes with is much more comfortable than one would expect, the swivel seat is simply that much better and offers more versatility in movement.
Quality of Construction
Sea Eagle has been around for more than 40 years. They are the leaders in manufacturing quality inflatable boats and although there may be other boats on the market that perform faster or have more high tech features, no one can complain about the quality of construction of any of their inflatables.
This frameless pontoon boat is rugged and very solid. Sea Eagle has tested it by hitting it with the sharp end of a claw hammer over and over to no effect. Do not worry about bouncing off rocks or hitting a dock, this boat will hold up very well.
It offers the security of a 3 year warranty as well as a 180 day money back guarantee. Sea Eagle is a great company to purchase from. They know their stuff and stand behind their products. I have always been extremely pleased with their level of integrity and the service they provide.
Final ThoughtsIf you love to fish and you want an inflatable boat that is convenient, light weight and easy to use than the Sea Eagle frameless pontoon boat is a great choice. It has been extremely popular since it arrived on the market and I feel the only drawback is that it is really only for solo fishermen.
If you like to go with a buddy then you should take a look at the Sea Eagle FoldCat which is totally geared for two people.
It is the convenience of this inflatable boat that makes it so special. It is not that big so set up time is really quick. Sea Eagle says it takes 4 minutes but I think that is actually a bit optimistic. I would say 5 – 8 minutes… especially the first couple of times setting up.
However it is easy for one person to inflate and not overly heavy that you couldn’t carry it by yourself if you needed to, although I would recommend setting it up as close to the water as you can.
This is a very well thought out and affordable one person fishing inflatable boat that with a little care could likely last a lifetime. It is a lot of fun to use and when not in use can easily be stored away in a closet. There are 4 main packages to choose from depending on what will suit your needs.
