Meet BOTE's Micro Skiffs

In order to make your mark on the world, you often have to make a voyage into far-off places where few have ventured or even dared. We have developed a platform that will help you take that journey. A BOTE like no other, that will take you farther, faster than anything we have ever created. We call it Rover.

Hey, man. Can you put a motor on that? The answer is, finally, hell yes. A platform designed to help you go farther, faster, we give you the Rover Gatorshell Micro Skiff. Whether hunting, fishing, or exploring the unknown, it’s the do-it-all platform you can use as a classic SUP, propel faster with a motor, load with gear, and lock in with our suite of attachments.

NOT YOUR AVERAGE MICRO SKIFF

The Rover Gatorshell Micro Skiff stands apart for its size, capacity (500 lbs), and ability to carry a 6 to 9.9hp motor. We placed a recessed cockpit on a displacement hull with a deep-v nose, so you can slice through the water efficiently, regardless of speed. All that, plus unique features like a SUP Lift Handle™ and compatibility with a suite of accessories including the Grab Rac™ and Wheel Rac.

MODULAR RAC SYSTEM

Rover’s modular Rac Receiver System allow you to configure Rover in a multitude of configurations by simply sliding the Rac of your choosing into the receiver in a matter of seconds. No tools required.

DISPLACEMENT HULL

A displacement hull has a pointed nose which allows the board to cut through the water efficiently. It’s a good choice for fitness, extended paddling, and fishing.

GET SOME

BOTE offers two power options, the Hidea 6HP outboard motor and the Hidea 9.9HP motor. Rover will run like a scalded dog reaching speeds of 19 Mph getting you where you want to be faster than any BOTE we’ve ever made.

It’s a skiff. It’s a dingy. It’s a tender. It’s a motorized inflatable paddle board. It’s a BOTE...in a bag. Meet the patented Rover Aero - our AeroBOTE technology makes it the most portable micro skiff on the market. It’s easy to store and stands up to the toughest tests on any waterway.

PORTABLE VENTURE PLATFORM

Just when you thought the Rover couldn't get any better - we made it portable enough to take on all your fishing expeditions, near and far. Offering the same sunken cockpit for a lower center of gravity and flat bottom for maximum stability as the Rover, but small enough to fit in it's suitcase-sized travel bag. Now, traveling to your next epic fishing destination doesn't have to mean leaving your ultimate fishing machine behind. Unpack, unroll, inflate, fish!

DESIGNED INSIDE & OUT

The portability of our AeroBOTEs is undeniable. Whether you have a smaller vehicle without a roof mounting system or you take public transportation, the Rover Aero can go with you. The Rover Aero Bag features wheels which allows you to easily transport your Rover Aero to places other boards can’t reach.

6HP HIDEA MOTOR

The Hidea HDF6 outboard motor is an excellent choice to pair with your new Rover Aero. It offers the largest displacement of any one cylinder outboard in this hp and weight class. It provides all the power you need to push the Rover Aero up to 16 Mph. This engine does that as well as providing fuel efficiency second to none and a redesigned carrying handle and holding grip make it convenient to transport!
