Join our Community

We have a community of 6000 members all over the UK, Europe and other parts of the World that are sharing fishing locations, boat advice and information invaluable to anyone taking up the sport of fishing from a SIB (Soft Inflatable Boat).
Whether you call it a dinghy, a Rib or a Sib, anything small and inflatable that floats on the water, we have it covered.

Even if you’re buying a boat just to hoon around on the water with, there's something for everyone in the Facebook group community.

Quality you can rely on

Our boats are made from high quality UV stabilised PVC, all are built conforming to BS EN and CE standards.

We only stock top branded outboard engines for sale, Mercury, Suzuki and LEHR with years of trust built between the manufacturers and customers and that's including all of our accessories too. 
Top manufacturers you can trust at an affordable price. We really do have the best inflatable boats for fishing.

All under one roof

No need to go searching the internet for individual items to kit out your inflatable boat?
Here you can buy everything you need in one go and take advantage of the bundle packs we have to offer.
Different packages for different needs. 
We have something for everyone. 

If there is something you want and it's not on the site then just drop us a fishing line and we may be able to source it. 

Why pay for a charter boat?

Why pay high charter boat fees to go out fishing when you can have your own boat customized to suit your needs and it's yours to keep.
No time restrictions, you can come and go inshore fishing or river fishing whenever you like.
Packed away in the boot of a car or caravan being able to launch from any beach or slipway.
No mooring fees or the need for a trailer. 
Go from shoreline fishing to inshore fishing and increase your catch rate.

We have many different sizes and styles of boats available to choose from. 
Or you could save up to £100 opting for one of our Inflatable Boat Bundles which include the boat and a few extras like life jackets, fish finders, electric pumps, transom wheels and more.

July 2020 

After a year and a half of planning, the first batch of Hydrus II boats arrived in the UK where they were shipped out and in some cases hand delivered to their excited owners. 

 With only one or two minor delays the whole operation went according to plan despite the current pandemic the whole world seems to be facing. 

My only regret is not ordering anywhere near enough boats. 

So the Hydrus III will be on order very soon ready to arrive in the spring of 2021.

We're now taking pre-orders for the Hydrus III which will be with us in time for Spring 2021.
