Intex Explorer Inflatable Boat Series: Reviews

Main Features

A plastic inflatable boat with 2 air chambers 

Is currently one of Intex’s more affordable inflatable boats from their inflatable boat range

Is an orange and yellow color which is reasonably visible

Comes in 3 different models – the 100 (1 person boat), 200 (2 person boat), and 300 (3 person boat) series

100 Series is 58 x 14 x 33 inches (W x H x D), and has a stated 120-pound weight capacity

200 Series is 73″ x 37″ x 16″, and has a stated weight capacity of 210 lb

300 Series is 83″ x 46″ x 16″ (211cm x 117cm x 41cm), and has a stated weight capacity of 410lbs

Designed for pools or calm waters

All models come with oar locks on the side of the boat

All models come with a grab rope on the front of the boat

Can be bought with the boat only, or there’s also an option to buy with oars and an air pump. Oars are roughly 48 inches in length


Potential Drawbacks

Might be for light use and light activities only, and casual floating/boating only. It might not be designed for moderate to heavy or intense boating activity

Might be only water environments where the boat won’t come into contact with anything sharp like rocks, sticks, etc., as it may be at risk of puncturing

May be some other potential shortcomings with this boat such as taking a reasonable amount of time to inflate, the oar holders not being overly flexible, and the weight capacity/person capacity of each model not matching who and what can be fit in the boat in real life – different users may have different experiences with the potential shortcomings though

There’s an age limit to the use of this product – check it before purchasing


Other Notes

Make sure you are aware of the warranty and return conditions of the boat before you buy through the seller you end up buying from
