The Gibsy King Light 160 inflatable boat has the same structural rigidity and bottom strength as boats of the same size with a wooden floor. This effect is provided by a high-pressure inflatable bottom made of 3D textile - polyester with double-sided PVC coating. The floor also functions as a buoyancy chamber in addition to the hull chambers. Buy the Gibsy King Light 160 inflatable boat as a tender boat or for walking or fishing in sheltered waters.

The King Light series of Gibsy inflatable boats has 4 variations in size range, which differ in carrying capacity, diameter, number of buoyancy chambers and other parameters. The high-pressure inflatable floor remains unchanged in all models of the series, which is its main difference and advantage.

Special material called 3D textile is capable of withstanding such pressure and preventing the flat bottom from swelling into a ball. This is a layer of polyester, the cut of which is a crossing of a million fibers and is coated on both sides with PVC. Such textiles are used to make the body and bottom.

With dimensions of 1.6x1.18 and a diameter of buoyancy chambers of 30 cm Gibsy King Light 160 has following advantages thanks to the high pressure inflatable floor:

  • sufficient mechanical rigidity of the structure as a whole is ensured, since the bottom, when inflated by a high-pressure pump, becomes as rigid as a plywood bottom;
  • the floor pushes into the sides when inflated under high pressure, which also increases the rigidity of the structure when the hull chambers are inflated;
  • the inflatable bottom, although it lies in the spacer of the sides of the hull, does not abrade them, like a separately nested plywood flooring;
  • the process of assembling and disassembling the boat is made as easy as possible, since the inflatable floor does not need to be pulled out before folding, it is enough just to deflate it, having previously removed the engine and seat.

When deflated, the floor, together with the deflated buoyancy chambers, is folded, fitted into a bag and can be placed in a car trunk or in a yacht locker. But the boat is so compact and light that even when assembled it can be transported on the roof of a motorhome or car, as well as on the transom of a yacht or aft, including in suspended state.

Buy Gibsy King Light 160 and get maximum comfort and safety on the water at the right price.
