Born A Classic
Developed From Innovation
The Pacific Northwest is widely regarded for its stunning waterways and some of the most treacherous and inspiring coastlines. These waterways, with their constantly changing conditions, drove the Classic's design.
The boat's hull is made from the same material as the rest of the boat, but with increased thickness and abrasion resistance. With this as our starting point, we added additional protection on any high wear or impact zones. With an attentive focus on every aspect of how the Classic was designed, you can beach your boat in even the toughest terrain. The Classic is at home in the ocean or the most pristine lake.
Tougher Than Tough
With the use of the highest quality PVC Material, thermally welded seams, ample reinforcement and protection on all high wear and impact areas, the Swellfish Classic line is tough enough to take on any extreme adventure.The bottom of the hull has a strategically placed rub strake and added material. This helps the boat avoid any punctures while it remains as light as possible.Inside the boat, extra material was added to any spots that see extra wear. This includes the seat and floor areas
Safety At Its Core
A Workhorse At Heart
When you compare a 14 foot Jon Boat with an average payload of 700lbs to our Classic 430 with a max payload of 2600lbs you can see why this boat is not only popular with the coast guard. Our boats are equipped with 3 to 5 air chambers depending on the size, and there is an over-inflation valve. In addition to inflatable boats having a much higher weight capacity, the design makes them far more stable than a Jon boat. No more shifting to balance the boat.
Made To Go Anywhere
When it comes to boats, many options can get you on the water. The advantages found in an inflatable boat are what drives our customers to the Classic line. Inflatable boat buoyancy comes from both the air chambers and the deep V-hull rather than just the hull displacing water. This is where safety and stability come from.
Explore Without Limitations
Only a boat that is over-engineered can prepare you for any adventure you might find yourself on. Compact and light enough to be flown in on a floatplane or helicopter, we genuinely believe that your gear should not limit your explorations or adventures. With this in mind, we have overbuilt our boats to give you a product that you can use for years and the ability to upgrade it to suit all of the adventures you are going on.

Find The Right Classic
We say max 4 people, but if you're fishing with 2 adults the 270 can be a little cozy. This is truly for those who need to pack light.
We know we say max 7 people, but realistically 2 adults with their fishing and camping gear will leave just a bit of room to lounge.
Perfect for a small family or you and your dog on a multi-night adventure through the Pacific North West
The same increased stability of the 470 but a little less room. 3 adults, cooler and crab traps still feels roomy
The extra room means you can take 6 adults, the dog and all the gear you need for your hunting or fishing adventure in one trip
