LONGSHORE DE260 - Packraft with removable Spray Deck

LONGSHORE DE260 - Packraft with removable Spray Deck



Packraft with removable spray deck.


The DE260 is our most versatile packraft. With a removable deck, it can be used in moderate whitewater or for river, estuary and coastal cruising.

This packraft is easily carried in a backpack along with other camping kit and is ideal for multi-day trips. When you reach the water, use the inflation bag to inflate it in under 3 minutes and paddle off.

The DE260 can be paddled in an open configuration or with the deck closed. The spray deck is zipped in place along one side and secured on the opposite edge with a wide strip of velcro. The velcro allows for an easy exit from the boat. An inflatable triangle within the deck helps prevent water pooling around the paddler. The deck helps to keep the paddler dry and retains warmth in colder climates and can be removed completely or rolled up and stowed under the foredeck using straps. 

The DE260 has an inflatable U-seat and rear backrest for comfortable paddling. A Boston one-way valve allows rapid inflation and top up on the move. Multiple webbing tie down points at the stern and bow allow for gear (or a bike) to be strapped to the packraft.

All of our packrafts are made with 210D urethane double-coated nylon tubes (unless otherwise stated) and a highly puncture-resistant 840D urethane double-coated nylon floor. The robust seams are stitched and then heat welded with 420D urethane double-coated nylon tape.
