16' KaBoat Motor Canoe Description

SK487XL KaBoats are designed to support more gear and provide more space than other KaBoat models. Extra large, 16" diameter oversized tubes and an extra wide interior make the SK487XL KaBoat perfect for law enforcement, special military operations under cover of darkness, or expedition along an unexplored coast. This model is also great for remote island explorations, fun day on a water with a family, or just simple fishing on a weekend with friends.

This new SK487XL model has 4 separate air chambers for extra safety, compared to 2 standard chambers of regular KaBoats. Extra heavy-duty rub strake protectors are installed along both sides of the tubes for enhanced durability and rigidity.

SK487 KaBoats come with 2 sets of oarlocks and 2 sets of rowing oars for fast tandem rowing. With a 15HP 2-stroke outboard motor, this KaBoat was riding scary fast! The SK487XL handles sharp turns great and holds large waves without a problem.

I have the AK version of the the 13' and it is a well made solid inflatable,very stable and adequate for 2 folks but if I had it to do again I would go for the 15' model. Have used a 3.3 hp and electric 50 lb thrust and both push it very well. It handles 1' to 2' waves well and have never had a concern about the boat tipping. Only complaint is the inflation valves...can't get them to hold for more that 2 or 3 days without needing a pump. Not a big issue but I wish they didn't leak that much. Otherwise...fine boat.
