Alfonso

has been designed with anglers in mind but it also makes an ideal family boat for use on lakes, calm rivers and sheltered waters in general.

DEVELOPMENT

Ever since we made the first prototype of our inflatable fishing Halibut, which we developed together with our fishing expert David Havlicek, we started thinking of a multi-seated fishing boat with maximum variability in practical use.

While designing Alfonso, we made the hull of Ruby our starting point, but this time we were not building another pleasure boat fitted with gadgets for fishing. Alfonso is built wider, with larger side tubes and a completely new bottom to increase the stability. We gained great riding characteristics, and better comfort for the crew.

Another “nut to crack” was adapting the boat for use with oars, as oars are preferable to paddles in fishing circles. So we introduced the oars and kept the boat’s size compact when packed and easy to transport.

RESULT

Alfonso is a stable three person inflatable boat, with variable positions of the seats. The boat can be paddled, rowed or driven by an outboard motor.

The boat has the load capacity of 400kg and it weighs 35kg including plywood seats and a motor mount. It can be transported in a 135l waterproof backpack, which is included with the boat. Alfonso is a real three-seat boat that needs neither trailer nor garage.

For people, who lack space, whether for storage or for transportation, Alfonso may be the perfect boat, whatever way of transport they prefer. It really doesn’t take up unnecessary space. The boat can carry ten times its own weight and its performance is inspired by the 60-year tradition of inflatable boat production at GUMOTEX.

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

Alfonso can take up to three passengers. It has three benches made of quality plywood. Two of these can be fitted with comfortable adjustable inflatable seats with fishing rod holders on the backrests. (Inflatable seats are included in the standard equipment) The third bench can serve as a “coffee table” or as a base for mounting of additional accessories. If you set out in a pair, you can use canoe paddles. If you set out fishing alone, you will prefer oars that can be mounted in oarlocks already installed on the boat.
