Our Venture Series 1500 boat is extremely popular among outfitters offering day trips. This 15ft raft allows space for a 4th thwart and a 9 crew members. It’s also perfect for long trips on big rivers.
Vanguard rafts use a strong polyester base fabric in all our boats. The fabric doesn’t stretch when inflated and provides a rigid tube for decreased drag. The 3600 denier floor fabric is some of the thickest in the industry and the floor is also double wrapped halfway up the sides of the tubes.
Our boat fabric is then coated in PVC to provide a perfect combination of lasting durability, and abrasion resistance. The PVC coating also adds another layer of improvement on the boat’s performance and helps decrease the drag and improve the rigidity of the boat.
Finally, our boats are glued to provide a superior chemical bond. Glued seams on a PVC boat are fundamentally different than glued seams on a hypalon boat. A glued seams maintains the integrity of the fabric and makes repairs simple.
