Zeppelin Aero Inflatable Kayak

The result of a timely tryst between a highly utilitarian father and a swiss army-like mother, the Zeppelin is the most versatile kayak in the BOTE waters. A self-draining hull, removable floor chamber, and optional second seat differentiate the Zeppelin from its stablemates. An inflatable watership that welcomes the individual and tandem alike.

The Kayak, Remastered

Highly Versatile

Combining ease of use and transportability, the inflatable Zeppelin is the most versatile craft in the BOTE line-up. With the ability to shift from single user to tandem by adding the optional second seat is a game changer.

Extremely Portable

The portability of the Zeppelin is undeniable. Whether you have a smaller vehicle with no roof mounting system or you take public transportation, the Zeppelin can go with you. Taking a flight to a remote location or on a family getaway, the Zeppelin is able to be checked on most airlines. Going on a cruise to the islands or have a boat of your own, yep, the Zeppelin can accompany you wherever you want to go.

Super Stable

The combination of the AeroBOTE constructed removable floor and the 9” lightweight side chambers makes the Zeppelin incredibly stable for one or two paddlers. With a 600lb weight capacity it would be difficult to find a sturdier watercraft in its class.

With a family of 4, finding something that can fit us all is super rare. Our Zeppelin was the perfect buy!! Thanks for such a great board.

Zeppelin Aero

I live in Denver so haven’t had an opportunity to use it outside yet but in the indoor pool it performed very well. Excellent tracking and plenty of space for me and my pup! Can’t wait to use it in both mountain lakes and rivers!

LOVE the Zeppelin-

Just received and tried out our Zeppelin. Have had it out three times this winter so far. Fantastic~ cannot say enough. Well made-rugged construction. My husband, myself our 75#dog went out into choppy waters on the lake to test it out. Stable - no listing even when the dog went crazy for the geese- tracked really well (both tandem and single), glides nicely and assembled in 10 min- although the hand pump is a bit difficult for me (but not impossible) as you reach the recommended PSI so we just invested in the electric pump. Just thrilled!!! Went down the gauntlet of inflatables. So happy to have this model and look forward to a great season. Have some great pictures showing the room -even with our 75# dog. Although the bottom is quite rigid and appears very durable- we put down a thick yoga mat for the dog- to protect the rigid bottom from the dog and also so she knows to stay on her mat. So much room for all of us. Cannot wait for spring and flat glacial lakes.

We have bought 5 bote paddle boards over the years (hard/inflatable) but my husband had always preferred kayaks. When the Zepplin was released we knew immediately that it was a perfect fit for us. It arrived quickly and my husband and 7 year old LOVE it. Not only is it versatile, it’s everything that we hoped for in comfort and maneuverability. Don’t wait, get one!

Out of the box

I received my Zeppelin in good shape. It is well constructed and a high quality product. I inflated it with the bote pump. Inflation was much faster than I expected. It held pressure for a week with no issues. I have it deflated now and stored it in the roller bag. It’s still winter here with temps as low as -10. I will need some warmer weather to take it out on the water.
