Our inflatable boats are sold in the US and Canada under the Seamax brand and these boats have been proven in the market now for many years as sea worthy, very strong, well designed economical inflatable pontoon boats. Our inflatable boats are a proven Italian design used by Italian Special Forces and built from superior Korean-made PVC materials that are popular with coast guard rescue boats all around the world.
At Ocean Inflatable’s we are fisherman, divers and have plenty of experience on the water. In our recreational fishing we need boats that can handle our conditions to get us to those hard to get places. This is where an inflatable boat comes into it’s own. They are so easy to transport and you can drive to a beautiful location, inflate your boat and within minutes be in a great fishing spot hauling in the big one. Or strap it to you roof rack and drive to the beach. Either way you will have a great experience.
The result for the New Zealand consumer is a quality inflatable watercraft product at a very reasonable price and built to ISO 9001:2000 certified manufacturer’s standard rating.
We have chosen the brand Ocean inflatable boats for New Zealand which we think fits in with the rugged coastline and beautiful sandy beaches we all enjoy.
Our manufacturing factory is internationally recognized and has excellent standards of quality: their production line has an ISO 9001:2000 certified manufacturer’s standard rating.
Why Buy Ocean Inflatable Boats?
Our V hull design gives you the lift required to make the ride more comfortable in a short chop. Coupled with that we have a keel built in to the hull to give more direction and a more accurate steering experience.
Our Ocean inflatable boats have oversized buoyancy tubes (pontoons) which provide the best level of stability out of all the boats we tested. This makes it almost impossible to capsize the inflatable. Our boats have a low center of gravity which means people who are unsure about the safety of an inflatable boat get an immediate sense of security when in the boat. You can not help but feel safe in an Ocean Inflatable Boat.
There are two main safety features to point out: the V-hull bottom and inflatable keel are protected by a special patch called Hull Double Layer Protection. This design has been shown to reduce repairs by 30% compared to other brands. Lastly, there is an inter baffle on the tube that keeps the air bladder safely sealed, and its flexible design works to equalize air pressure between the cone parts.
Convenient and easy to Transport
Our boats are very strong but also a very light design, which means they are easy to transport and up to 3 times lighter than competitor boats of the same size. This means handling your Oceans Inflatable boat is easier and more convenient particularly when launching it, putting it away, and transporting the boat to yor favourite destination.
The most appealing aspect of Ocean inflatable boats, however, is the low price. Ranging from $1000 to $2000 for 270 up to 420 models, these are some of the most attractive, economical, and well-made boats on the market today.
All of the boats are made with 1100 denier polyester fabric, which has been coated on each side with PVC, keeping the inflatable resistant to tears and abrasions. Each Ocean boat is manmade, including hand gluing the seams using a polyurethane-based glue for added protection against salt water and heat. The PVC material is backed by a 5-year warranty; the seams have a 3-year warranty
Our Ocean Inflatable Boats range from the small craft, the Ocean270 with a load capacity of 480kg, to the largest craft, the Ocean600 that can hold up to 12 people or 1400kg. The boats can easily be rowed or powered by a small outboard from 4hp on the Ocean270, up to 50hp on the Ocean600.
In New Zealand we have tested rigorously our inflatable boats and found the Ocean Series Inflatables to be the most suited to our rugged New Zealand conditions.
We use only the best aluminum and marine ply in our floors to ensure extra stability and to make the boats stronger to support more horsepower.
These are rugged yet lightweight designs, which can be up to 3 times lighter than competitor boats of the same size. That makes storing, assembly, and launching from a beach or larger boat deck much easier. The most appealing aspect of Ocean inflatable boats, however, is the low price. Ranging from $1000 to $2000 for 270 up to 420 models, these are some of the most attractive, economical, and well-made boats on the market today.
Ocean Series – Our inflatable boats feature a 45-degree sharp nose design and a V-hull bottom created by the rigid floor and inflatable keel which in turn improves stability and tracking. Aluminum floor is a favorite of divers as the dive bottles do not cause damage and stability is important when handling heavy objects.
Inflatable Advantages -
What makes inflatable’s a good choice for recreational boaters?
Inflatable’s and RIBs are user-friendly, they are designed for safety, speed, comfort and durability – and they look stylish. Here are the top “inflatable advantages”:
Safety - The large, shock-absorbing pontoons give a very stable experience to the user and this design makes the boat impossible to capsize under normal conditions. With each independent air compartments being separated by robust PVC walls , the boat is stable and unsinkable, even with one of the air sections deflated.
Buoyancy - Because of the large pontoons filled with air, the load capacity of an inflatable is far greater than that of a traditional aluminion or fibreglass boat of a similar size.
Fuel Efficiency/Power Ratio – Because of their light weight construction, inflatable’s and RIBs achieve excellent performance with smaller engines than would be required on traditional boats of similar size. That means greater fuel efficiency and lower purchase cost for engines, at a time when fuel prices are soaring.
The Ocean Series inflatable boats offer large cockpit space, aluminum flooring, and more color choices than just the traditional light gray. Please ask if you want a paticular colours
