SIERRARIOS RAFTS FOR SALE!!
IMPROVED SOLID DESIGN IN 2016
BACKED BY WARRANTY
SierraRios is manufacturing rafts! See PHOTO ALBUM

In order to increase appreciation of little-known rivers in Latin America and other remote locations, SierraRios has undertaken a program to provide top quality rafts and catarafts at affordable prices. We learned a lot from four generations of rafts between 2013-2016, each time making design changes so the next set of self-bailing rafts and catarafts will be tougher and longer-lasting. All rafts/catarafts have little threat of air leaks because all air seams are welded rather than glued. The 2015+ models have Leifield C7 valves, the most durable and the easiest to use. D-rings are now stitched/welded and will never come off (the main raft material will tear first). The collision band (if present) is also welded and will not delaminate. We're so confident in the product that new rafts/catarafts for personal use sold at listed rates come with a warranty of 3 years on manufacturer defects.

Some rafts are in stock in California and Peru. Older used models may also be available. If interested, please inquire.

TBD = To Be Determined

If pre-ordering a raft, several custom features are available, including:

- collision band around the outside (extra $100) - if you want that extra protection against punctures/blows from hitting sharp walls/rocks
- drop-stitch floor (extra $200) - less maintenance as no pressure-relief valve required; never have the bulging floor from blown I-beam
- D-rings and footcups (extra $30 each) - if you wish extra D-rings or foot-cups or different placement
