Alpacka Gnu- Open Boat

From: $35.00

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.  Please note: does not include in-tube cargo fly.

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 western, continental US (west of the Mississippi and not Alaska or Hawaii).  Please call for shipping rates of 5 or more rafts and shipping on rafts to other locations not covered in the flat rate.

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
