There hadn't been anything new on the slat floor market for 50 years - until we took it up as a topic! (08/22/2017)
Also with motors in use a top stable thing.
First of all, the special feature of the premium slatted floor
The premium slatted floor for iBoats is completely covered with thick inflatable boat material, so that there are no longer any dangerous and extremely impractical gaps in which you could injure yourself or through which, almost without exception, all the dirt under the floor gets into the keel ect. reached. Day or night, you simply step aboard like a continuous bottom boat.
It has at least one more panel to push the keel down properly and give the boat even more stability.
More details on batten and keel:
A slatted floor has never been used without problems in connection with an inflatable V-keel, which is extremely important for the good handling characteristics of boats. Now, for the first time in inflatable boat history, it is possible to use a slatted floor in conjunction with inflatable V-keels. The premium slatted floor is tailored to our latest Generation 4 iBoats. The panels are automatically clamped when the tubes are inflated, allowing them to withstand the upward pressure of the keel.

Slatted or high-pressure air floor?
With our iBoats 260 and 320 we still rely on high-pressure air floors in the initial scope of delivery. The quick installation and the enormous weight savings compared to aluminum or wooden floors as well as the high stability are ideal for our carp fishing needs. In the meantime, hardly anyone doubts high-pressure air floors - more than 10 years was also a sufficiently long introductory phase
Air robs space - that's probably the altitude!
However, the high-pressure air floor also takes up a lot of space - namely in height! So when it comes to loading the iBoats at maximum height, the new “slats” have a clear advantage. Here there are differences of up to 10 cm on the length of a 3.20 m long iBoat a significant increase in volume of no less than 200 liters! The comfort of the seating position is also improved enormously.
The sizes 160 and 210 will be delivered directly with the premium slatted floor from the upcoming Generation 5. The high-pressure air floor is then optionally available as an accessory.
The main advantage of slatted floors is the height gained in the interior and the strong increase in volume - a great advantage, especially for small boats!
In addition, the somewhat stiffer version of the high-pressure air floor is not required on the 160 and 210, as large engines and tackle are not used far here. You don't go to the supermarket with luggage either... so adapt everything to the requirements and then, as we know, it's the best way to go!
And here it comes out!
Difference in height of the air and slatted floor using the iBoat 260 as an example at the level of the rudder mount!
Height between lower edge of seat and
– High pressure air floor: 27.5 cm
– Premium slatted floor: 35.5 cm
Tip for all XXL movers for even more space in the boat!
In connection with the premium slatted floor, simply let the air out of the keel when moving -
you will be amazed!
