Designed in ultra-tough Gatorshell™ Technology, this fishing machine comes feature-rich and equipped for ample compatibility options, including the Sandspear, Power-Pole® Micro, Wheel Rac, and Power Rac.

FISHING. CAMPING. STABILITY.

With enough stability to manhandle even the largest fish or carry you and your gear to that prime camping location - the Rackham's thick rails and displacement hull make it solid as a rock... even in the harshest paddling conditions.

DISPLACEMENT HULL & Recessed Deck

A displacement hull has a pointed nose which allows the board to cut through the water efficiently, making it a good choice for fitness, extended paddling, and fishing. The Rackham's recessed deck provides added stability by giving the rider to have a lower center of gravity, as well as helps keep water off the deck.

RACKHAM PORTABILITY

Don't let the size and capacity fool you, the wheel rac attachment coupled with the lift SUP handle on the nose of the Rackham give the ease of portability you've come to expect from the BOTE family of products.

Key Features

Cooler Tie-Down Points

Tie down points on the deck of the board, perfect for lashing down a sold separately KULA cooler (or other gear).
