In the world of inflatable boats, beauty is indeed skin deep. If the skin of the boat is stretchy, the boat will be soft and squishy no matter how much air you put into it. But if the skin resists stretching, then the air pressure inside makes the boat firm and rigid, so it feels and moves more like a boat made of solid materials and less like a water bed.
At SailboatsToGo, we make sail kits for inflatable kayaks
, canoes and dinghies. We try out every inflatable boat we can get our hands on, so we can design and test sail kits for them. Even if you don't plan to sail, our experience can help you understand your inflatable boat options. Our sail kits make inflatable kayaks and boats into real sailboats, with a big enough sail for some rip-roaring fun, leeboards for tacking upwind, and a steering unit to give you good one-handed steering control.

We don't make inflatable boats; we enable you to sail them. Since we make the sail kits and not the boats, we can give unbiased guidance on choosing a boat, whether you intend to sail, motor, paddle or row.
