The Waterman's SUP

With a 400 lb. capacity and clocking in at 12′4″ long, the Rackham Aero is made from highly durable AeroBOTE Technology, including two-chamber construction for capacity, thick rails and a recessed deck for stability, and center and side fins for mobility and increased tracking. The Rackham Aero is one of our most feature-rich platforms and is compatible with a variety of attachments, including the Sandspear™, Power-Pole® Micro Anchor, and Power Rac.

Load It Down

The inflatable Rackham is designed to fold up, pack in and go anywhere you aim to nab your next catch. Hunt and fish in stealth – use it to gain access for hunting waterfowl or slide right up on that monster redfish. Rackham Aero is the perfect choice for any outdoorsman.

Unparalleled Innovation

With thick rails, flat bottom and two-chamber design - the Rackham Aero offers stability and capacity that is second-to-none while bringing you the portability and durable innovation that is unique to our AeroBOTE technology.

A Game Changer

The Rackham Aero has been a fishing game changer for me. I travel... a lot! Being able to roll up and pack away the most stable inflatable fishing platform on the planet is the best damn thing ever.

– Hunter Harlow, BOTE Brand Ambassador
