Considered a canoe, small boat / trailer, and high quality inflatable b4 making a purchase. Went with the Sevylor 325 Inflatable. Have used 17 times this summer! 10 minutes to unload and be on the water . . . 10 minutes to land and have stored in the car. Plenty of room for 1 adult and 1 or 2 kids. Have used for fishing small lakes and streams in Wisconsin. Stable. Well built.

THE BOAT LOOKS BIGER IN THE PICTURE AND THERE IS NO WAY THAH YOU CAN FEET 5 PEOPLE IN THERE, I THINK IT IS ONLY FOR 2 PEOPLE.

IT IS A GOOD BOAT YOU CAN STAND UP AND IT'S VERY STRONG.

Bought this for my wife, two kids and myself. It takes 5 or so minutes to pump up (hand pump)and 2 or 3 minutes to take down. It seem to be a solid and sturdy boat. Quality is above average. I use a 30 lb. thrust electric and it moves it well. It comes with a carry bag to take it from/to the lake and works pretty well. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because it only handles 2-3 people comfortably. I have hadme, my wife and 2 kids all in at the same time and all works well, just not quite enough room. I would say 3 people max for comfort. It is an awesome boat overall.

Not a cheap pool toy!!, Takes about 10 minutes to get up and running with all my gear. The sevylor motor mount and a minn kota electric transom motor work perfectly. Rolls up and fits in the back of any car with room to spare. Downsides are its a little heavy,must buy oars, motor, motor mount, battery, ect.. seperatly but well worth it, and depending on the air temp. inflation or deflation of air is required when in use.

There's some good, some bad news about this boat. I've had it for about a year, and use it infrequently on a small lake. The good news is that it resists punctures well, and is sturdy and stable, thanks partly to its wooden slats in the floor. The bad news is that its flat bottom makes it hard to control. Whether you use the oar locks, or just paddle it, it darts right and left very easily if you don't perfectly balance your strokes, and wind really pushes it around. I really don't enjoy using the boat because of this. I wish it had just a slight keel. Other than that, it has good storage pockets, tie downs, rod holders, etc. It is the right size for two adults and sometimes a small child. I can't see getting more people than that in it, though. I'd wish I had just bought a nice canoe.

Edit - Now that I've gotten the hang of rowing this boat with the oars in the oar locks, I like it. I can control it very well, so I'm upping the stars to four. I still would rather have a canoe, but at least this boat is more portable and storable than a canoe...just deflate it. It is also more stable, which might be important to some.

I have had my 325 now for 6 years and landed in many lakes, including some over 3,000 acres. It is sturdy, stable and dependable. I read complaints in other reviews about deflating issues while in use. I have NEVER had this problem. You must tighten the boston valves very snugly after filling and they will hold in air. I keep a little Coleman electric air pump on hand just in case. My Mrs. and I fit into the rig perfectly .....I removed her bow end bench to make more room for fishing gear, and replaced it for her with a sevylor inflatable seat putting her further up toward the far end of the bow. I run a 50 lb. thrust Minnkota electric outboard with a full sized 80 watt deep cycle rechargeable marine battery. I have 6 forward speeds and 3 reverse and it works well for trolling or zipping to a drop-anchor location for still fishing. I purchased the mounting hardware separately and it works perfectly. I have had this craft out in the water for up to 6 hours or more at a time and it never let any air loose whatsoever. The boat stores in a handy bag that fits right in the back of the truck with all the rest of the camping gear for easy convenience. The boat inflates quickly and deflates even faster. I am very happy with this investment altogether.

After a motorhome trip to Alaska and not being able to get out on all those great lakes I went looking for a boat solution, and I found it in the Fish Master 325.

I use it with a large marine battery, a 30 lb. thrust electric motor, motor mount, oars, and a battery operated air pump. This all fits in one of my cargo compartments.

I have had it for 2 years now and used it at least 20 times on lakes in Colorado and Arizona. It is very stable with 2 adults and one 8 yr. old grandchild on board. The wood slats in the bottom give it a more solid feel. I can operate for about 4 hours with the battery.

I like the 2 air chambers that it has for safety, and air tight check valves for filling it with air. When you use it on a cold water lake it will get a little soft, however, with the air fill check valves I attach my battery operated air pump and add air while I am on the water. When it is setting on top of my car the sun will heat the air inside and the air pressure builds up so I need to let out some air. This is not the boat's fault just the rule of physics for air expanding when heated. The fabric cover gives it extra durability and a nice look. It's a great fishing boat for anyone with limited storage. I LOVE IT.

I've used this 2 summers in a row now and it's been great. I have a Jeep Wrangler with a hitch mounted storage rack and it fits perfectly when folded and stowed.

I've gone into rocks and branches and it hasn't gotten a hole yet.

Other reviewers are correct, this might be a 4 person boat if you really really try. However, two adults is maximum capacity for room and comfort.

The only problem I've had with this are the oar locks. The rings are too small to accommodate the oar shafts that I have. I plan on getting the electric motor for it at some point to negate this issue.

Hello,

For the last three month I've got pretty bad experience with this Sevylor company product - Fish Master 325 and would like to share my experience with you.

In May 23rd 2009 I've bought my first boat and used it just three times. I'm sure I did everything right, used standard Sevylor pumps, only two persons were on the boat (approximately weight 400 pounds) etc. Anyway after third time the boat had been cut inside and I was not able to use it anymore. Well, the first boat was defected...I called to Amazon, explained the citation, sent the boat back with no charge and got my second boat...After four hours on the water the boat had been deflated 30-40%.. I thought something wrong was with the hull so we inflated it again and went to the water trip. After 15-20 min on the water the boat had been deflated 50% and finally we've got the accident!! So I lost all of my fishing tools.

I checked for the wholes after this "nice" trip and was not able to find out any. So I think the material PVC itself doesn't work good.

Now I'm sending the second boat back to Amazon and have to pay UPS fees. Honestly I'm really disappointed with the product. I really appreciate Amazon.com help and my money back but I was not able to use the boat in my vacation time plus this boat had been already registered with IL Department of Natural Resources and I paid taxes and fees.

Does Sevylor company have quality control Department?

I bought this boat for my husband to take out on the smaller lakes and ponds around here. It is super well constructed and has the wooden seats to make it easier to ride in. He's used it several times and everyone raves about it. It's well worth the cost!!
