Folbot Folding Kayak SOLD - $750 (Rigby)

123456789101112131415161718192021

length overall (LOA): 17
propulsion type: human

Bought in 1996, I have been the only owner.
It has not been used much, on average twice a year. It is in good condition.

For those unfamiliar with a Folbot:
The boat stores in two bags. The bags can be checked as luggage on an airplane, transported in a car trunk or packed to a mountain lake on a horse. Setup takes 20 minutes. It is very stable, it is almost impossible to tip over on still water. The weight capacity is 600 lbs, allowing for 2 adults and camping gear. There is storage in the front and back of the boat. Despite its stability the boat rows fast and tracks very well without a rudder but there is also an optional rudder included. A sail can be added, there are many options on the market.

This model is made from materials that will not rust or rot. There is no wood. The formers are a high strength composite, the stringers are aluminum, and all fittings and bolts are stainless or brass.

These boats are no longer made and the modern version can be hard to find. When last sold the selling price was over $3500. I am asking $800. Mine is in good shape with no damage. There are a couple scuff marks on the bottom. The bottom material is an extremely rugged, rubberized material. It has discolored in places.

A custom seat and portage cart is include. The seat is extremely comfortable and the parts for the original seat are included.
