iBoat 160 – Generation 5 Superlight – carbon black – the original
All iBoats come with black paddle and solid aluminum seatbanks in black!
Already on the exhibitions our extremely robust car trunk boat has caused a sensation and aroused a lot of interest- it seems that it is what many missed in their Garage and on the water.
Here not the „size“ is essential but the extreme stability and robustness that are responsible for the final price of 449 € including lots of accessories.
With a length of 160 cm and a width of 95 cm, you can put it in almost every car trunk!
• Just going to pre-bait without annoying inflate or deflate
• Quick echo-sounder investigations
• Safety boat for a lot of carp fishing situations
• For long walks, clever ones convert it into a trolley
• Spare boat on bigger trips
• Unhooking mat
The iBoat 160 is made of the 3 layered Dezitex 1100 material and a rock hard high pressure floor (0.6bar) – no-holds-barred.

Also take a look at the product presentation of the iboat exclusively on www.carpzilla.de
Mark Dörner: “The iboats of Imperial Fishing enjoy great popularity. It is no wonder because Imperial Fishing was the first company that developed rubber boats for carp fisher. Also in our rubber boat comparison they had the highest score and the newest version of iboats, the iboat 2.0, is furnished with another innovation: oarlock with metal roller- unbreakable. The iboats are real carp fisher boats; it is about time to pay attention to them!”
