Modeled after the company’s original hard Rackham fishing SUP, the inflatable BŌTE Rackham Aero is a serious rig that packs down into a bag for easy transport and storage.
Measuring 12’4” x 38” x 7” and weighing in at 45 pounds, the Rackham Aero is one very large inflatable SUP. Providing an extreme amount of stability, this board is capable of supporting up to 400 pounds of weight.
As BŌTE is well-known in the industry for, the new Rackham Aero sports a stunning design and comes in three eye-catching color options for 2019: Bug Slinger, Classic, and Verge Camo.
As far as inflatable fishing SUPs go, this board is as full-featured as they come. Positioned along the top deck of the board are Rac mounts for attaching BŌTE’s Tackle, Grab, and Bucket Racs. There are also multiple D-rings for lashing your cooler and other paddleboarding accessories.
Dual bungee storage areas at the nose and tail give you additional onboard gear storage options and the front grab handle makes it easier to manage this big SUP in and around the water.
Like the larger Rover Aero, the Rackham Aero also features BŌTE’s Paddle Sheath and Sandspear Sheath. The Paddle Sheath screws into the nose of the board and gives you a secure and out-of-the-way spot to stash your paddle while BŌTE’s Sandspear Sheath gives you an easy way to anchor your board.
Another great option to keep your board from drifting is a Power-Pole Micro wireless anchor and there are handy mounts included at the tail of the Rackham Aero.
|Max Capacity||400 pounds|
Located along both rails of the board are additional attachment points that allow you to attach 1/4:20 accessories.
The BŌTE Rackham Aero features an incredibly unique design that increases both rigidity and stability. This board has two chambers (the inflation valves are located at the nose and tail), thick rails, and a sunken cockpit that lowers the center of gravity.
As with all of BŌTE’s inflatable SUPs, the Rackham Aero is constructed with the company’s AeroBŌTE technology which utilizes a composite drop-stitch core and layers of bombproof PVC material.
The new Rackham Aero inflatable fishing SUP includes the following:
- Wheeled carrying backpack
- 3-piece travel paddle
- Repair kit
- Dual-action pump
- Rac receivers
- Paddle Sheath
- Sandspear Sheath
BŌTE also throws in a 1-year warranty which covers you in the event of a manufacturing defect.
I have had my Rackham for about a year now…
I have had my Rackham for about a year now. 48 trips, 600+ fish landed and numerous beachings on rocks, gravel and sand and no issues. I am a fly fisherman and weigh about 225 pounds. This ride is very stable and a great platform to fish from. I love this board.
An insane fishing SUP…
An insane fishing SUP that’s so much fun to customize. Lots of ways to personalize this rig and make it your own.
