Pelican and Sun Dolphin are two brands of plastic fishing boats with rigid hulls. Sevylor, airhead and Intex are three brands of inflatable plastic boats. Both types of boats are designed to be durable, yet economical.
Rigid plastic boats are usually made of specially formulated plastic, which make them light, yet strong enough to hold more than one person and a trolling motor. Many rigid plastic boats also have storage compartments and other features such as cup and rod holders. Inflatable plastic boats are designed to be durable and puncture-resistant. While some inflatable boats are able to be used with a motor, most are powered by rowing.
