A brand new 6-person raft from Switlik, this may prove to be the ultimate raft on the market at least when weight is not a serious consideration. Its low, rounded profile will reduce windage and drift. Comes with four ballast pockets that add over 500 lbs. of stability. The Switlik MD3 meets ISO-9650-1 specs, and is manufactured from the same materials as Switliks USCG-approved rafts. Meets ISAF regulations for Category 1 and 2 events. Not USCG-approved. Comes with an extensive equipment kit, and a choice of container or valise storage. Many available options include hydrostatic release, aluminum deck cradle, and more. Soft Fabric Valise: 31" long x 19" wide x 15" height. 97 lbs
Hard Fiberglass Container: 31" long x 21" wide x 14" height. 115 lbs
