‘R’ Series rafts are the workhorses of the AIRE fleet. These boats are ideal for carrying people and cargo. ‘R’ stands for ‘round’, meaning a traditional round boat design. ‘R’ Series rafts have a broader beam, large tube diameters and long waterlines making them the most stable of all AIRE rafts.
The ‘D’ Series rafts evolved from the sporty design of the Puma and Super Puma. The ‘D’ refers to the diminishing tubes of the bow and stern of this model. The
‘D’ series design offers a maneuverable and responsive boat while being able to accommodate large loads.
The ‘E’ stands for the ‘elliptical’ shape. The ‘E’ Series rafts feature a high rising, pointed bow and a squared stern. The squared stern makes a nice platform for the paddle captain.
‘E’ Series rafts rise 2 inches higher in the bow than our ‘R’ series rafts. ‘E’ series boats have a slightly narrower beam and smaller diameter tubes.
