Kevin Tinto from Tiburon, CA United States
Love the Aleko 10.5 (320) inflatable boat. I've had several inflatables, and this by far is the best.
Tough as nails: 1.2mm PVC. Most inflatables in this price range offer .9mm. Double bottom, strong glued seams, well fit aluminum floor and treated transom.
Design: Fantastic design. With just me aboard, with a 6hp Tohatsu, the boat will run close to 20mph. As a comparison, my 14' inflatable from Sinotor, with a 25 Tohatsu could barely eek out 23 at wide open. Hull shape design, when inflated is rigid! As close to an RIB as you will get on a inflatable hull. No floor buckling under throttle. You can always tell a poorly designed inflatable boat, by how it reacts getting on plane. If the floor buckles, regardless of pressure, it's not a good design. The Aleko, with just 4 pounds in the keel is rock sold rigid.
