Why buy a porta-bote?

Fold the porta-bote and travel on cartop. No trailer.

There are a number of reasons to own a Porta-Bote. If you have been thinking about purchasing one, read through this post and we’ll outline some of the reasons we have sold over 100,000 world wide and have been in business for over 40 years.

  • Easy to Store and Transport
  • Durable and reliable
  • Stable for fishing and diving
  • High performance, requiring smaller motors and less rowing effort.

Porta-Bote is a boat that’s easy to store and transport. It’s amazing, the Porta-Bote will actually fold up to 4 inches, making very convenient to transport and store. You don’t need space to store a boat, simply fold up the Porta-Bote and store it on your garage wall the same way you would store a surfboard. Transporting is just as easy, mount the Porta-Bote on a roof rack or trailer. No more need to tow a boat, it’s a boat that doesn’t need towing.

Durable and more reliable than an inflatable. We’ve used inflatables for years, and there are flaws with inflatable boat design which have been solved with the Porta-Bote. Inflatables take time to inflate and deflate, while the Porta-Bote is easily unfolded and assembled in minutes. You can get out on the water and out as quickly, giving you more time to enjoy the water. Porta-Bote is made of a space age polymer so it’s extremely durable and won’t puncture or leak like an inflatable.

Stability for fishing and diving. The design of the hull makes the Porta-Bote very stable for casting or climbing in and out for diving. For additional convince accessories are available, like the porta-deck, which adds a ladder and chair assembly. You won’t have to worry about tipping or rocking during casting or climbing in and out.

High performance for rowing and motors. Porta-Botes hull is designed to to require smaller motors than similar size boats. Because the Porta-bote doesn’t sit so deep in the water it almost glides and requires a lot less effort for rowing and you need a smaller motor. Instead of a 25 or 30 HP motor all you’ll need is around 4 HP.
