Alpacka Gnu Rental

Alpacka Gnu- Open Boat

From: $35.00

This page is under construction- details will be updated shortly.

One of our most versatile craft! The Alpacka Gnu is the first and only canoe-style packraft.  Designed for two, our longest and widest packraft, The Gnu is incredibly fast with a hull speed almost double the regular boats. This versatile boat is great for long expeditions, hunting, adventure racing, flat-water cruising, and can comfortably ferry three people across flat-water. The Gnu handles great in whitewater and is available with a two person removable Spray-deck.

The Gnu is a fabulous fishing craft for two people.  The person in the bow kneels and casts, while the person in the rear sits on the stern, using a kayak paddle or optional oar-frame to navigate.  Just like a drift boat, they can sneak into all kinds of holes along the riverbank.

With a long inflatable saddle, the Gnu is designed primarily for two people kneeling, using canoe paddles. It can also be paddled solo with a kayak paddle, or rowed with an optional oar-frame. The inflatable saddle can be rolled up to create a single seat for paddling in seated position.

The boat comes standard with a cargo fly in the center inflatable saddle.  This is a great storage space for day gear.  It also includes a cargo fly which gives it a tremendous amount of interior storage space.

Please be advised, the price above does not include shipping.  Round trip shipping is $40/1 raft, $50/2 rafts, $60/ 3 rafts and $70/4 rafts.  Shipping covers the cost to ship a paddle for each raft as well (pfds may add to the shipping cost).  Shipping can be added as an item in your cart or charged off the credit card you list in your waiver.  Flat rate shipping is only valid for the lower-48.  Please call for shipping rates of 5 or more rafts.

Also, our booking system isn’t working perfectly, so if the days you want are unavailable, it doesn’t hurt to call or email us to double check that it isn’t an error on our website!  406-272-6468

Please be sure to leave 3 open days before and after your reservation so we have time to ship it to you. Thanks!
