I bought this shirt for my wife and she loves it. It looks great on her.
The customer service is even better. Do not hesitate to do business with Swellfish
Fantastic motor. Greg quickly got me the motor I wanted and answered all questions I had. I would definitely deal with Swellfish again!
Shipped quick to USA.
Awesome unit and works like a gem!
I have needed oarlocks for my inflatable boats since I bought them. These are the perfect solution.
only used it once but seems to do the job
Great boat! I only wish there were videos about assembly on the Swellfish website.
It’s been almost a year since I’ve had the 390. I got the angler+ package. My first thoughts were skewed seeing so many different pieces coming out of different boxes - is this a boat or a set? Haha. After some challenges installing the floor correctly (with swift assistance from Greg from Swellfish over chat), I put the entire 390 together in my living room. A 12’10” it surely is - and robust as it gets. The construction was superior than I first imagined, especially the transom, keel and bow area. A solid beast. After assembling the add ons it started to look like a real mean machine. I appreciate all the affixed Scotty mounts, the sliding seat features and the construction of the entire surface and its welds.
I’m an honest angler, so when I tell you the floor is difficult to install at first I mean it. Get some practice and don’t inflate the chambers much at all.
The aluminum floor pieces are made well but IMO are a little noisy at the joints, and are hard on the knees while installing. I’ve always carpeted my aluminum stand surfaces, so I quickly made my Swellfish more comfortable and quiet by throwing some Home Depot carpeted floor mats down. A easy fix that fits perfectly!
One thing to note with the seat cover and bow bag; this material will fade quickly in the direct sun if your boat spends too much time in the elements. Take em out if you’re moored.
I’ve been running an 8Hp two stroke on my 390 and it’s just enough to get on plane. I’d recommend at least a 9.9 and above for this tank. The boat holds keel incredibly well and reacts great to steering at all speeds.
I think the 390 is the ultimate size for what I wanted it for; shooting video on lakes and having a very stable platform to do so. This is exactly what the 390 is. Stable AF.
Is it a boat size to purchase to be constantly putting it together and taking it down? Not in my opinion. I’d say the 390 should be on a small boat trailer or cargo trailer. It’s too heavy and wide to be pulling in and out of a truck box as well. I’d go with the smaller models if your plans are to be Nomadic and constantly be assembling / tearing down / using out of a hatchback. Definitely an SUV or pickup box to move around the deflated boat and floors etc.
The swellfish advantages heavily outweigh the small list of cons. There’s always cons to boats that require assembly. The safety aspect of multi chamber inflatables and the incredibly massive payload rating trump a regular tin boat in this length, and some. The team at Swellfish are incredibly helpful and to be honest, they’re just damn nice guys. I’m a happy Swellfish owner and I’m already making plans for my second boat.
Bigger or smaller - maybe both!

Great product … works well and travels well
Had no instructions which made it harder then it should have been.....other minor issues but other then that l have reccomended friends to consider buying Swellfish then other offshore or American made inflatables....kenny evans
It's hanging in our shop on display, customers love it and ask a lot of questions about it.
Has been a great portable boat option. Not too heavy and enough room for two adults
I have trailered this boat behind a motorhome from Alaska to Mexico and back twice, had it in two different oceans, countless lakes and rivers and it just keeps going. Great build quality and versatility.
Great boat all around, its a tight fit for 2 full size adults with your fishing equipment and a deep cycle battery but you can definitely make it work, good fishing for hours, first set up is a little complicated but once you do it, easy up easy down making for fast fishing! Deflates small enough to fit in a compact car, only negative i have is the carry bags have/are ripping apart so just be careful how you handle it!
Would highly reccomend
