Product Description
The Surfsea GT280-A is a 2.8 metre air deck inflatable, similar in style to the 2.3 metre, but more spacious in style and comfort. Capable of seating 3 adults and a child and can utilise a larger outboard - up to 10hp, weighing up to a maximum 38kgs. This lightweight (41kg) craft comes in light grey with a dark grey trim and is suited to a wide range of uses. Made from tough 1100 Decitex 0.9mm PVC fabric, with heavier weight 1.2mm PVC being used for the hull base. In addition to this we use 1.2mm wear strips on the rear of the two main tubes with a thick heavy duty oversize rubber keel strip running the length of the hull.

Wear strips on the keel and tube bottoms
We have added 1.2mm wear strips on the rear of the two main tubes as well as a purpose made 19.5cm ribbed pvc strip that runs the full length of keel, as this is where boats wear out first. As boats spend most of their time sitting on deck, sand or even rocks, simply by adding these features they will help increase the lifespan of your boat.

Over-pressure relief valve
Tubes expand in the sun, this auto valve simply releases the excess pressure. If your boat does not have this fitted, pressure builds up and simply works its way between the glued sections, causing the boat to have a permanent annoying leak.

Independent air chambers
These are conical in shape, fitted to ensure equal pressure in all three tube compartments. They also have the advantage that If one tube compartment is ruptured, the others remain airtight and boat retains its buoyancy, very safe!

Buoyancy - Level Flotation.
This is the safest option and means that there is enough flotation distributed in the correct way in the boat, so that people can stay in the boat if it is swamped and it won’t capsize. Even if the boat is full of water, it will stay stable and upright.

Rubbing strake with splash guard
These protection strips will prevent knocks and scrapes from damaging the tubes when along side piers, pontoons, etc.

Life lines
To hold onto whilst in the water or sitting in the boat.

Bow handle
Large stainless steel handle complete with ring for attaching mooring rope (supplied)

Towing rings
These oversize 'D' style stainless steel rings are perfect for attaching when towing, one fitted each side.

Inflatable keel
Deep 'v' style keel which results in added stability. Also helps boat ride higher in the water, plane easier and results in a drier ride!

Air deck
New technology firm and stable air floor - enables boat to be rolled up when deflated and is also completely removable.

Carry handles
Four large carry handles, conveniently placed, fitted port and starboard.

25mm Marine grade plywood, short-shaft height with fitted mounting plates for engine. Now bolted as well as glued onto transom holder for added strength.

Made from marine grade aluminium - removable & positionable.

Two aluminium removable oars bolted onto fitted rowlocks.

Inflation valves
Dependable low profile valves - one in each air chamber, and keel.

Drain valve
One way drain valve with plug. Remove the bung when underway and any water aboard will be discharged through the valve automatically!

Round tube ends
Our new design with rounded tube ends means that you'll have a more stable boat, allowing you to get up on the plane quicker, and to maintain this at lower speeds than before.

Australian boat builders plate
Legally this plate has to be fitted to all new boats sold. It also comes with a Hull Identification Number (HIN) which is unique to your boat.
