As a logical further development, the scubi 3 is intended for all those who need a little more space than the two-seater version allows. The scubi 3 has three full seats with ample legroom. It is therefore ideal for three adults or two adults with up to two small children. It can also be used in pairs and offers plenty of space for luggage. The middle seat surface can also be removed if necessary, only the cross bracings must remain installed.
The scubi 3 is also designed for leisure use and can be set up very quickly and easily. The scubi 3 also uses the hybrid technology developed by nortik and impressively combines the advantages of inflatable boats with those of folding boats. The boat has a continuous keel consisting of four parts and a bow and stern stem. The three comfortable hanging seats, as well as their side brackets, are already integrated in the boat and don’t need installing or removing. Two smaller frames are inserted under each seat. The already installed thigh straps ensure a good and secure hold in the boat.
The floor of the scubi 3 has no inflatable elements. Only the sides consist of two high pressure air hoses to be inflated independently of each other (operating pressure: 0.25 bar or 3.6 psi), which you pump up with the pump incl. pressure gauge included in the delivery. A pressure relief valve on each side provides additional safety and prevents too much pressure from building up in the hoses, e.g. due to very strong sunlight. It is precisely this combination of air elements and the linkage structure with the continuous keel that ensures the boat's good sailing characteristics. The fact that the hull does not lie on the water (as is the case, for example, with pure inflatable boats with a flat hull), but that the boat has draught and is therefore in the water, means that the track can only be maintained. In addition, this linkage structure gives the scubi 3 the necessary rigidity. The handling characteristics for touring paddling are much better compared to pure inflatable boats of this size.
