I love this boat to death and it will be hard for me to part with it, but for what I do and the rivers I guide; a raft is more suitable. However, the drift boat is certainly the boat of choice for the Colorado, San Juan, parts of the rowing fork, Grey Reef and the big water of montana. Currently, new drift boats are range around 7,000. Even then you would be hard pressed to find a used boat for under 5,000. Reason being is that these boats hold there value and are nearly bomb proof. I'm asking 4,500 with the trailor, catarac oars/spare oar and anchor system.
if you are new to rowing I will be happy to take you out on a free guided trip along with rowing instruction.
