An inflatable that works as hard on the water as you do.
Our inflatable boats with aluminium floors are also classed as our Commercial series of boats. They're a cornerstone of Northern Diver's extensive range of rescue inflatables and inflatable water craft.
Built tough so they work hard for rugged private and commercial use, the Commercial series are a lightweight, utility option. Packed with high performance features, these versatile aluminium floored boats are the perfect solution for a range of uses.
Our inflatable boats are perfectly geared for shallow waters, they can be easily transported (inflated or deflated) and quickly deployed. These stable and highly manoeuvrable boats are highly responsive and are designed to aid the effective recovery of in-water casualties.
The aluminium floor of the Commercial series offers several benefits. From its heavy duty but lightweight design which makes it very portable, to the quick and easy assembly through to the superior stability and excellent manoeuvrability, our Commercial Series inflatables are great value for money. Even up to the 5.6m size, the inflatables are transportable by a two man crew when either inflated or deflated. The Commercial Series boats are fitted with 316 Stainless Steel D-rings, soft grip carry handles, grab handles, double grab handles, oar locks, a bow handle or towing eye and bench seating1. All these features provide added functionality, particularly in water rescue scenarios.
The boat's durable aluminium floor comes in full width sections that can be assembled and disassembled as required. These floor sections are easy to put together, interlocking in the base of the boat. If necessary, dismantling the floor is equally simple, you may wish to dismantle it and deflate the boat so you can store it in a small space. The inflatable boat can pack down and be stored in the supplied carry bag if required. We send your inflatable to you deflated in this bag, along with the simple aluminium floor sections, paddles, a maintenance kit3 and a manual inflation pump (either a hand or foot pump, depending on the boat size). We do also offer rapid inflation systems we recommend our Saturn reg inflation kit to inflate from a compressed air cylinder or the speedy air pumps, which are found under inflatable accessories.

What provides the stability to Northern Diver aluminium floored boats?
The inflatable boats' large buoyancy tubes provide excellent stability and are complemented by the sturdy aluminium floor. This in turn makes the boats safe as well as very reliable, even in shallow waters. Its why they're ideal in emergency situations and for the recover of a man overboard.
