  • Our most popular Otter raft is the 13' Otter 130. It's a versatile design that works perfectly for any fishing excursion or multi-day medium to low-volume river trip.
  • High quality Pennel Orca® tubes and floor, HD-40 bottom armor and a frame chafe guard make this one heck of a tough boat.
  • A three chamber tube construction ensures you have buoyancy in case of an accident.
  • Attach the two removable thwarts to make this into a great paddle boat for the whole family.
  • 12 stainless steel 2" D-rings and 4 carrying handles round out this great boat.
  • The NRS Fishing Raft Frame is ideal for a day out on the river catching fish. You get a comfortable rowers seat in the middle and a raised High-Back Swivel Seat that puts the angler up high for ease of casting. Note: The photo shows the Angler Swivel Seat, which has been discontinued.
  • The Stern Seat Mount gives you room for another angler in the back of the boat, with a High-Back Swivel Seat that allows you to fish at any angle. Note: The photo shows the Angler Swivel Seat, which has been discontinued.
  • Front and rear casting platforms give you a place to stand up with solid, secure footing.
  • A U-Shaped Thigh Bar gives added stability for the front angler, while the Rear "Y" Thigh Bar does the same in the back.
  • The NRS Anchor Mount is a great tool for staying in the spot where the fish are. The pulley system brings the operation of the anchor within easy reach of the rower. Anchor and rope sold separately (3/8" polypropylene rope is recommended)
  • Two 9' Carlisle Oars, with 6.5" Outfitter Blades, are tough and durable; giving you the power to keep you in place or get you back upstream.
  • Two Oar Sleeves give you a quieter system while a pair of Oar Rights keep your oar at the right angle to the water for maximum efficiency with minimum effort.
  • Seven 3' NRS 1" HD Straps will secure the frame to your boat.
  • Includes repair kit.
  • Boat Warranty: 5 Year Retail, 3 Year Commercial

How To: Inflate a Raft (2:00)

You've invested in a good boat; you want to make sure it lasts a long time. Proper inflation techniques go a long way toward protecting the raft's seams and the baffles between chambers from strain and damage. In this video, Josh Gile, NRS Repairs, goes over steps for pumping up to recommended levels while keeping equal air pressure on both sides of each internal baffle. It's simple stuff, but doing it right is important boat longevity insurance.

How To: Fold an Inflatable Boat or SUP for Storage (2:33)

One of the great things about inflatable rafts, catarafts, kayaks and SUP boards is that when not in use they can be deflated, taking up very little storage space. In this video the NRS Repairs crew gives you the tips and techniques to minimize stress on seams and material while they're being folded and tucked away.

  • NRS Otter 130 Fishing Package

    Q:

    What are the most number of dry boxes and coolers the frame can be configure with? In other words, I need a large cooler and dry box. What are the largest of these the frame can be configure with?

      A:

      Brian, this frame isn't configured for a large cooler or dry box. You could get one in by rowing from it, using a couple of cross bars to support it. You may want to look at a larger raft to make room for two boxes. The NRS frame system is super adaptable and these fishing package are just examples of what can be done. Call 800.635.5202 or email service@nrs.com to discuss your needs with one of our knowledgeable boat folks.

    Q:

    Does the frame itself break down? How many cubic feet would you guess are needed to store the deflated boat and broken down frame?

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Jon, this article shows how the frame breaks down - http://www.nrs.com/tech_talk/frameFacts.asp - The boat comes in a box 12" x 30" x 40". The whole package won't take up a lot of room if stowed compactly.

    Q:

    Besides the obvious (size), what are the differences between the Otter 13 and 14? Any differences in construction or performance? Are the floors the same?
    Asked on 7/9/2016 by Brian from Northern Alberta, Canada

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Brian, it really is the size. The 140 is larger in length, width and tube diameter. With the same weight on board, it will float a bit higher. The 130 will fit through a narrower space. The boats are built side-by-side by the same skilled craftsmen, of the same materials. And yes, the floors are the same. The fishing packages are there mostly as examples of what can be done. You can put one in your Shopping Cart, then add and subtract boats, frame pieces, etc. As long as there's a boat in the Cart, all additional pieces will be discounted 10%, Call 800.635.5202 or email service@nrs.com to discuss the many options you can have.

      Cheri, the package as listed weighs almost 250 pounds; too much for one person to carry. You can manage it by yourself if you trailer it and can back it into the water.

    Q:

    If the swivel seat is discontinued, what is the standard seat for the frame, both bow and stern? Do you have a picture?

    I am an older fisherman (67) but still in good shape. I regularly fly fish the Delaware West and East branch from a kayak, paddling 10-15 miles per day. Is the raft going to wear me out? Is it easier, harder or comparable to a kayak paddle/fishing trip? I have never paddled a raft and am wondering how difficlt it will be to handle? Will a 13 or 14 footer be better for me? Most trips are 1 day river fishing trips in Northeast and Montana.

      A:

      Casey, the front and rear seats shown in the photo are our old Angler Swivel Seats. They worked fine for most folks boating in relatively mild waters, but in strong rapids some fishermen broke the seat backs. Now those seats are replaced with the High-Back Swivel Seats, Item # 94026.02. Since you're in good shape, rowing a raft shouldn't be a problem. I'm older than you and I horse around a 15' raft on multiday trips. The 13' Otter is our most popular fishing raft. And please be aware that while we can sell you this package, our frame system is super modular and you can build the frame just like you want. The best way to help you will be via phone. Give us a call and one of our friendly, knowledgeable folks can help you get the best solution for your needs.

    Q:

    I am in the market for a new raft. I have had drift boats in the past but now I am limited to not being bale to pull a trailer. With a full size raft are you able to deflate and roll up the raft for transport? Should you store your raft inflated or deflated?
    Asked on 12/18/2014 by Zack from Washington state

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Zack, the ability to deflate a raft for transport and storage is one of the strong points of the craft. If you look at the Sizing tab on the boat bags you can get an idea of approximately how compact they can be - http://www.nrs.com/product/3095/nrs-boat-bag-for-raftsiks-and-cats - The ideal way to store a raft would be softly inflated, in an enclosed space safe from rats and other rodents (they seem to like to burrow into). That being said, I've never had that kind of space and been putting away rolled NRS boats for over 30 years with no issues or problems.

    Is there a particular cooler you would recommend for the Otter 130? I am going to use this primarily for day trip fly fishing. Thank you!

      A:

      Dave, the internal width of the 130 is 37". The 94 quart Igloo is the largest that will fit. However, that size is probably overkill for your uses. There are a couple of smaller sizes - http://www.nrs.com/category/2924/camping/igloo-coolers
