Sierra South, eBay and The Boat People are three places that sell affordable used whitewater rafts. Sierra South and The Boat People each sell product at its brick-and-mortar locations and on corresponding retail websites, PaddleSportsOnline.com and TheBoatPeople.com.
Sierra South is the largest, oldest whitewater kayaking school in Southern California. Its associated retail inventory includes standard floor rafts that sell for roughly $1,500. Similarly, the assortment of used whitewater rafts on eBay ranges from $350 to $2,000. Some are self-bailing and tend to be more expensive even when previously owned, ranging from about $2,000 to $4,000.
The Boat Store occasionally carries used inflatable whitewater rafts online, but all used models are sold out as of 2015. However, the website is a good source of potential sales. The company also buys used whitewater rafts and intermittently has them in stock at its brick-and-mortar store in Danville, California.
