AIRE Lion 16 Cataraft - Strong and powerful like its namesake, the Lion 16 cataraft from AIRE will make the haul. Designed to carry extra large loads for longer trips, the Lion 16 has the load capacity of many 18-foot catarafts. It's an excellent choice for extended river trips where hauling equipment and sustenance is essential. The longer waterline and larger diameter tubes not only let you bring the kitchen sink, they'll help power through waves and bust through holes.

PVC-coated tubes provide superior durability, and internal bladders provide an extra measure of strength and safety. Multiple air chamber are an added safety feature. Ergonomic carry handles ease moving the Lion to and from the water. Maximize your performance and load capacity with the AIRE Lion 16 cataraft.
