The main benefit of inflatable boats that use pressurised gas is their light weight. Once deflated, they fold up into much more compact forms and transport easily to any destination for recreational purposes. Bigger boats and airplanes also use such boats as life rafts.
Equip your inflatable boat with oars to get in a good work out, or install an engine to get around quicker. Invest in an inflatable dinghy or kayak to have a portable, light, and reliable vessel.
