Rocky Mountain Rafts Quickly Becoming Industry Leader

Our Rocky Mountain Rafts line has proven to be extremely tough and durable over the last several years, with constant small improvements and high customer satisfaction.  These heavy duty welded products are commercial grade, and include inflatable kayaks, cataraft tubes, whitewater river rafts from 9’ to 18’, and specialty craft. Rocky Mountain Rafts cost less per year to own than any other brand on the market with excellent potential life spans of 25+ years. The factory does not just make the boats, they also produce the material they are constructed from.  This provides the highest degree of quality control from start to finish, and every Rocky product is inspected by the importer before being boxed and shipped. Best sellers include the 10’6” Storm raft, the 14’ drop-stitch floor raft, and the 16’ CT-160 cataraft pontoon tubes. All Rocky Mountain Rafts include a five year warranty for private boaters.
