The Rackham


The Rackham

BOTE has once again redefined the stand-up paddle board. We did it with the BOTE Board, the HD and AHAB and we are doing it once again with the Rackham!

RACKHAM: from BOTE from Color Earth on Vimeo.


Combining our best selling 12' HD with the advanced features of our 14' Ahab, the 12' Rackham is the most versatile paddle board we have ever offered. Featuring displacement hull technology, the Rackham paddles effortlessly. The recessed standing platform and thick bow keep the paddler and gear high and dry...And speaking of gear, the Rackham sports a capacity of near 400 pounds. Stow your paddle in the Paddlesheath®, your fishing rods and tackle in the Tackle Rac®, and stake out via two thru holes–One of which is Power Pole® Micro compatible.

"This board is everything that I have ever wanted in a SUP", says Corey Cooper, CEO and Product Director of BOTE.  " I wanted a board that could fit every element of my lifestyle from paddling to partying and I think the Rackham nails it." The Rackham also features one of BOTE's latest innovations, the Paddlesheath™, a feature that Cooper describes as an "elegently simple" way of solving the problem "where do I put my paddle when I am standing up".

The Rackham will be available mid October 2014 in 2 different construction options, Classic and Native, and will also be available in the Realtree® and Bugslinger™ editions.

Just as Captain Jack Rackham defined the pirate with his "Joly Roger" flag, the BOTE Rackham will define the waterman's SUP for years to come.
