Gumotex Palava Inflatable Canoe


The Palava is an extremely versatile inflatable canoe suitable for lazy days on the river through to easier white water and camping expeditions. Made from super tough Nitrilon the Palava is elivered in its own 80L heavy duty drybag. This can then be used to store gear whilst paddling. Once unrolled and the two wooden padded seats installed the canoe can be pumped up in a few minutes and weighing only 17kg is easily carried to the water. Suitable for two adults the Palava has an optional centre seat which can be used for solo paddlers or for children.

The design of the Palava is a modern classic with low freeboard to reduce windage and a straight tracking super stable hull enabling the paddler to concentrate on enjoying the ride. With oodles of space for gear as well as storage bungees on the bow and stern there is a place for everything. The deck is finished off with plenty of grab handles and safety lines to make portage easy.

For those looking to venture into moving water the Palava is equipped with quick release knee straps and gear tie downs and can cope with grade 2 conditions. Being single skin the Palava is easy to dry, quick to deflate with its push push valves and then can be rolled away into the supplied rucksack dry bag for easy transport back to the get in.
The Palava is a truly great craft and one that you will keep paddling again and again due to its ease of use and versatile nature.
