Gumotex Palava


The Palava is a great alternative to a hard shell canoe and is often recommended by experienced canoeists as the “go to” inflatable.  Easily paddled solo or tandem by beginners or experts alike the superior Nitrilon material used in its construction makes it robust and hard wearing as well as enabling it to dry out faster after use than nylon covered inflatable’s.


The Palava can easily tackle relaxing rivers, canals and lakes while carrying your camping or picnic equipment but, if you are of a more adventurous nature, is also capable of taking moderate white water rapids in its stride. The max load for the palava is 240kg ensuring that you can take all the gear you need and the boat will still perform.


The Palava has two padded wooden bench seats which can be completely removed if required and there is also a third seat mounting position near the centre of the boat which is ideal for paddling solo.  All this along with integrated thigh straps to keep you connected to the boat for better control in rougher or faster flowing waters complete the package.
