Intex Excursion 5 Inflatable boat set review

The Intex Excursion 5 is a 5 person inflatable boat set that comes with Aluminum Oars and High Output Air Pump. Most of the boats that are designed are usually a one or two seater, but the Intex Excursion 5 is designed especially for 5 people. The Intex Excursion 5 has 3 air chambers which includes an auxiliary air chamber.

It has a Boston valve on the two main hull chambers which allows quick filling as well as fast deflating. The Intex Excursion 5 is an inflatable I-Beam which allows for greater comfort as well as great rigidity. Moreover, it contains 2 welded oarlocks on each side, which guarantees safety and convenience.

The Intex Excursion 5 is made of Super-tough vinyl construction, which makes it extremely durable. The boat is US Coast guard approved. Additionally, the boat also contains two fishing rod holders, a gear pouch, two spacious inflatable seats which have backrests, oar holders and also motor mount fittings.

The Intex Excursion 5 uninflated is 24 x 12 x 22 inches and weighs 58 pounds. The boat is known to be very strong, as well as comfortable. The boat is suitable for large as well as small rivers given the fact that it is very sturdy. Since the boat is large and heavy, it takes some time to inflate but it is totally worth it given its space and sturdiness if you have a large group going fishing or sightseeing.

The Intex Excursion 5 is extremely spacious. However given the size and strong build of the boat, it might be hard to paddle but once you get going it is much eaisser. Moreover, it can be used on a river with a strong current as well.

Compared to a kayak it is cheaper and you can have a great experience if you can paddle well. The best thing that rowing lovers like about the Intex Excursion 5 is that it comes with oars and a pump and that you can add a motor to it if you wish to do so.

Another very important and attractive feature of the Intex Excursion 5 is that it comes with a bag for easy storage and carrying thus making it easier to carry, fold or store. This will help you maintain the durability of the boat.

If you love rowing alone or with family, then Intex Excursion 5 is the ultimate choice for you. It is quite spacious and has great speed. Furthermore, it is not only sturdy but appears quite strong which gives it a nice look.
