10% Off All Accesrrories! Third thwart sold separately.

The 13'1" Aire Super Puma is a larger version of the Puma, offering more space for friends and gear. A continuous-curve design, short waterline and narrow width make this a highly maneuverable boat.
  • A slightly larger design than the Puma, the Super Puma will easily accommodate five paddlers plus a guide.
  • The Super Puma also makes a great fishing boat when equipped with an NRS Fishing Raft Frame.
  • AIRE raft tubes and floors are equipped with bombproof PVC-coated material that's thicker than other brands for superior durability.
  • Internal urethane AIREcells provide an extra measure of strength, durability and safety.
  • The piano hinge style of floor lacing, found in all AIRE rafts, provides quick self-bailing and a plethora of options for getting just the right placement of the thwarts.
  • A narrow width, along with high rocker angles at the bow and stern, make this boat super manueverable and fun to run in whitewater.

    Q:

    The picture shows three thwarts though the order spec shows two...how many does it come with?

    Can the thwarts be moved to different positions, so we can customize their location?

      A:

      It comes with two which works great for me when I R-2, R-4 and easy to adjust for the fishing frame.

      A:

      Only two thwarts come with the boat. Extra thwarts are Item # 87001.01. The thwarts are strapped into the floor lacing, so they can be attached anywhere you want.

    Q:

    I used to own inflatable rafts like the ones shown on the NRS website a couple of decades ago, but with oar locks. Does NRS have some inflatable rafts with oar locks as an option?

      You can add oar locks by strapping on a frame

      A:

      Brett, if you're referring to the type of oarlock that is molded "rubber" and glued on the raft, no we don't have any of those. If you do a web search for "glue on oarlocks" you'll find some options. That type of lock will only be appropriate for light-duty rowing. The Skidguard Frame, Item # 92012.01, is our least expensive frame and the Longhorn Frame, Item # 92010.01, is next.

    Q:

    I am comparing this boat to the Otter 130 and one major difference is the bow/tow kick 14" vs. the Otter that lists at 28". This is predominately going to be a fishing vessel but there will be class II and III water in it's future as well. Can you share your thoughts on bow/tow kick?

      A:

      Here you run into a difference in how NRS and AIRE measure "kick." We measure to the top of the end panel; AIRE measures to the bottom. So, comparing apples-to-apples, with the Super Puma end panel at 15" in diameter (it's a diminishing tube design), its "NRS measured" kick is 29". So, there's no difference in kick with the two boats and you're back to looking at the other design differences. Either will be great for your Class II/III waters. Give us a call, 800.635.5202, if we can help you narrow down your choice!

    Q:

    what length oars would you reccommend?
    Asked on 3/24/2013 by sd

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Oar length is somewhat a matter of personal preference, but a 7.5' oar length would be good with this boat.

    Q:

    would this boat be good for 4 paddlers and a guide

      A:

      It would work great for those five paddlers. Fun ride.

      Answered on 1/18/2013 by Clyde from NRS
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Absolutely. We use ours with 4-6 paddlers. I will sometimes run it with a total of 4 with the 4th paddler as the guide. Or I use it as you described with a total of 5. We have also used it with 6 adult paddlers with 6th man as guide and it's fine for a day trip that way. I have run mine multiple times at medium and low water on Westwater on the Colorado River.

    Comments about AIRE Super Puma Self-Bailing Rafts:

    Great workmanship! Planes high in the water (doesn't hang up on rocks as much); flat profile bottom makes it nimble and fast turning. My kayaking buddies have to work to keep up. Ability to place thwarts almost anywhere makes for a versatile boat.

    Service and delivery comments:

    NRS' service is the best; they are always there when needed and no surprises.

          My wife was so mad when I got it. After the 1st trip down the river she was happy I got it. This is the 2nd puma I've got. Any other raft isn't the same.
