The AIRE Sabertooth 12 Cataraft, or as we like to call it - the Slaybertooth - is quite possibly the finest paddle cat on the market. It's fast, nimble, and tracks like it has 4-wheel drive. At home in Class IV & V, this boat pushes paddle raft performance to the edge of what's possible, and is extremely forgiving to guide. The capability of the Sabertooth is unmatched in our opinion.
Known for its superior performance as an R2 'shredder', the Sabertooth is also a blast to throw a small frame on and row with 8' shorty oars. Whether you are rowing or paddling, this boat serves up plenty of face shots since it lacks the spray guard that is common with other paddle cats.
They say money can't buy happiness... whoever said that hasn't paddled a Sabertooth!

PRO TIP: We highly recommend picking up 2-4 AIRE Thwart Handles with this boat to give yourself some interior D-rings for clipping gear or throw bags. The interior of this boat has few places to secure gear without them.
