These hydrodynamic tapered ends make easy work of punching through waves. Cataraft tip rise is enhanced to 5” above the tubes for improved performance on waves and in hydraulics.
Pick your Cataraft size to match your needs and anticipated loads. The first number in each name indicates the length of the tubes and the second number indicates the center tube diameter. The smallest Maravia Cat is the light and lively 12x22 with a 575 pound load capacity.
Weight capacity for Cats is useful only for comparing the capacity of one model versus another. Heavy loads significantly affect cataraft maneuverability. In that condition, they will not be as "cat-like" as you may desire, but they will be very stable.
In any Cat, there is a trade- off between load and performance. Each Maravia Cat has two chambers per tube. The 12x22 has 3 d-rings on each tube side, and 1 on each end (8 per tube, 16 per set).
