Transporter 1 – Includes one passenger compartment, nose cone with padded seat, two pontoons with padded seats, two pontoon end guides. Coast Guard approved for up to 4 people.
Transporter 1 folds into a single compartment of 3'x4'x20". If you only have a group of 4 people or less, this size works great!
Transporter 2: 9 Foot Modular Boat – Includes two passenger compartments, center padded seat, nose cone with padded seat, four pontoons with padded seats, two pontoon end guides.
Transporter 2 is great for a group of more people. This boat is Coast Guard approved for up to 7 people! There is always plenty of room since you can store all the lifejackets, equipment, and personal belongings in the pontoons.
The pontoons and nose of this boat fit inside the passenger campartments. And the motor, battery, paddles - even the life jackets all fit inside the pontoons, under the padded seats. The result is that everything becomes a single transportable box.
It is very light weight - lighter than aluminum boats, and lighter than the durable rubber inflatable boats. Light weight, with everything included, in a compact package makes it more transportable than any other boat.
The boat is also modular. The nose and two of the pontoons can be attached to just one of the passenger compartments, to make a smaller boat out of the larger one. This small boat will fit on the back of a four-wheeler, and can be transported into the most remote locations.
The Transporter will fit on the top of a car with a top rack. It will fit on the back of a vehicle with a trailer hitch receiver rack. It will fit in the back of a pick-up truck and leave plenty of room for all your camping gear. It is simply more transportable than even inflatable boats which may roll up, but which have additional packages to include the floorboards, motor, battery, life jackets, paddles - even the seats all separately. Inflatable boats also require maintenance when they puncture and no longer inflate!
What if your car is smaller? The Transporter 1 will strap to the top carrier rack. The boat in the picture rode fine at 70 mph on the freeway to a lake 80 miles away. The Transporter 1 is one passenger compartment complete with nose cone, pontoons, motor, battery, paddles, etc.
The Transporter can even have a wheel added to the box, and the paddles attached as handles - transforming it into a "wheel barrow" that a single person can wheel down a narrow path to a lake; that is transportablility!
On most small boats, everything you take onto the lake with you must be placed on the floor of the boat - under foot. With the Transporter, all those things fit inside the pontoons. On most small boats, you sit on hard seats. With the Transporter, you sit on nice padded seats. On most small boats, if you sit on the outside edge, you will tip the boat over and fall into the lake. With the Transporter, you can sit all around the edges on the padded seats on the pontoons - meaning there is more usable room in the same size boat for the passengers.
The durable urethane material that coats the entire boat is not only tough and durable, but it dissipates heat. You won't burn yourself on a hot day as you might by touching aluminum, or even hot rubber.
The Transporter is the most functional boat in its class. It is more comfortable with padded seats around the whole boat, more stable with side pontoons that keep it from tipping, more spacious because all your gear will fit inside the pontoons instead of being underfoot in the bottom of the boat, more fun because you can get back in the boat from swimming without it capsizing, or stand up in the boat to cast without taking an unwanted swim, more impervious to weather because it won't lose air pressure in the cold like an inflatable, nor freeze you or burn you like an aluminum boat in very cold or very hot weather, due to its temperature dissipation urethane coating.
With inflatable boats, you can get leaks and lose air. Even overnight, the cold air can cause the inflatable to deflate. The Transporter goes together much faster than an inflatable, and it holds its shape always.
The Transporter is a great boat for scuba divers. Scuba divers can sit on the side of this boat and drop into the water with no fear of tipping the boat or drenching the passengers. And they can climp back into this boat, using the attached ladder - safely. The Transporter boat is just more functional.
The fun of owning a boat and using it a few weeks per year, is counter-balanced by what you must do to store it the rest of the year. The small complete box of the Transporter will fit in the corner of a garage or a storage shed or under the awning, or behind the house. It can even have other things stacked on top of it - such as the rest of your camping gear.
(Note that Transporter 1 boat uses the modules from the full size boat. That means that if you purchase it and later want to "grow" the Transporter 1 boat, you can purchase the extra passenger compartment and pontoons, and your Transporter 1 becomes a full-sized Transporter 2 boat. It also means that anyone who buys a Transporter 2 boat, already owns a Transporter 1 as well, for those times when you want to just take a small boat into a remote place.)
Minn Kota C2 trolling motor
(This motor exactly fits inside one of the pontoons for transporting and storage. Other models may not fit.)
Light Weight Lithium Deep Cycle Battery
This small lithium battery weighs less than 5 pounds, but will operate the trolling motor for a day on the lake at trolling speeds. Then it will recharge much faster than a lead acid battery. It is hard to overstate just how nice it is to have such a light weight battery when transporting this boat.(Requires a special battery charger)
(Note: You can purchase a normal deep cycle AGM or lead acid battery for much less at your local stores. However, they weigh over 50 pounds, and therefore make the transportability of this boat much heavier. The pontoons will accommodate a battery width of 7 inches, so most standard batteries will fit.)
Lithium Battery Charger
Required to charge your Deep Cycle Lithium Battery.
These paddles have collapsible handles which make them ideal to store in the pontoons. But they extend out to 21”. They are strong enough to be used as handles, when you buy the optional front wheel for the boat, so that you can transport it wheel barrel style on a path to a lake. $29 set of 2. (Note: you can purchase a cheaper set of collapsible paddles at Walmart. We tried those. They use thinner aluminum in the handles, and the plastic rings on the handle cracked on our first use. So we chose the higher quality paddles at a little higher price.)
Tie-Up and Anchor Rope
The nose cone of the Transporter has a D ring on the front. This rope snaps to the ring, and gives you just what you need to tie the boat up to the shore or a dock. It can also double as a line for an anchor, when you want to tie up in the middle of the lake.
The boat won’t sink, even when it is full of water. But it is still nice to be able to bail out any water that splashes on board. The special feature of this bail bucket is its square design with the flat front. With a flat front, you can “scrape” out even very thin amounts of water, even in the corners. And of course, this bucket was designed to fit inside the pontoons.
Women love this boat because of its stability:
